We will meet at 8:30am for coffee and pastries at Sea Level Coffee in Cannon Beach. From there we will head to the trailhead and begin our hike! The trail winds through beautiful coastal forests of Oswald West State Park with ocean and meadow views along the way. When we reach Cape Falcon we will stop for photographs and take in the amazing views. If we get lucky we may see some seals! This will be our turn around point, and we will have the opportunity to take a short detour to either Smuggler's Cove or Short Sands Beach to take in some more ocean air. Each guest will have the opportunity to request photographs along the hike, and these will be provided as high quality digital images to each guest. This trail is well maintained, but it may get muddy in some sections. The hike is 5 miles total (including the detour to see the beach) and is relatively flat with a total elevation gain of only 160 feet. We will finish the hike with snacks and refreshments at the trailhead. All paces and experience levels welcome!
I am an avid hiker, trail and ultra runner and have explored trails all over the world. My most notable achievements are completing the Grand Canyon Rim to Rim to Rim in one day, and the Mont Blanc Trail in the Alps, which was over 100 miles traversing through three countries in 6 days. The Pacific Northwest has some of the most beautiful trails in the world, and the North Oregon Coast is my favorite of all Oregon has to offer. I love to share these trails with guests! I am CPR + Wilderness First Aid Certified. My husband and I own a cabin in Cannon Beach, OR that we host through AirBnB.
