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

We hiked the Clatsop Loop from Indian Beach, south of Seaside. The hike took us just under two hours, taking our time to take in all of the views. We recommend going up on the Eastern trail that follows the gravel path, and going down...More

Closed due to downed trees 3/8/17. We have hiked this from the Seaside side until a slide closed it last time. Steep at points and muddy as you would expect but easy to follow. We will try again in the summer.

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.
