“An out-and-back to a picturesque overlook.”— Susan Whitley
From this point on, the trail becomes muddier and has many long sections that require careful footing due to the mud and exposed tree roots. At 1.5 miles, you can see glimpses of the ocean and a great view down to Short Sands Beach. Just after mile 2, take a left at the unmarked fork (go right and you'll find yourself on the Oregon Coast Trail). The last 0.25 miles cuts through dense brush but opens up into a spectacular view (and very steep drop off) to the Pacific Ocean. There are three creek crossings—all have bridges—for your dog friends to lay down in if they are hot.
