This was a great hike for the family, a little tough for the little ones but well worth it. The only thing that would make this hike better would be to remove the 4' log over the trail at about 3.5 miles up.

You start at the south end of Seaside Beach and head up Tillamook Head. You start in a neighborhood but quickly round the corner and see Tillamook Head Lighthouse, which I believe is privately owned. The views as you traverse on are just lovely if...More

Nice hike, a little steep. Beautiful view. I gave it a 4, because there are so many choices. I preferred the Cannon Beach area more. This is a perfectly good hike

This trail head from Indian Beach or from Ecola State Park is an absolutely stunning hike with amazing views. You will see the Oregon Coast at its best.

I was running this trail and approached it from the north from Seaside. The trail was in a lot rougher shape than I anticipated. Gnarly roots and many places filled with mud with no drainage. It's a good grade and heavily treed for a good...More

I didn't see any public transportation between Seaside and Cannon Beach. That's not to say that it doesn't exist. However, the state park road from the park entrance to Indian Beach trail head would be a long walk, even if... More

It takes at least 40 minutes just to hike from the Turnaround at Seaside to the Tillamook Trailhead. You'd be better off driving to the Indian Beach trailhead and hiking from there.
