Moderate hike through West Coast forest. Distance is about 4 miles round trip to Heceta Lighthouse from the trail head on 101. Allow at least a couple of hours to appreciate the beauty. You have to watch your footing so if you hurry, you'll miss the sylvan grandeur. If it's warm, take water. And don't forget to give some to... 更多
This was a little difficult to find, you have to park across the highway at the China creek trailhead. Another review gave a location that was actually a ranger station up the road but we were able to backtrack and find it. It was worth it! I would call this a moderate difficulty hike. There are some areas that would... 更多
Road construction is nearly complete and both road and parking area are brand new asphalt. Parking is very limited and people don't think of others (someone parked two other cars in!). Traffic can be heavy so use caution and patience both in crossing back and forth to trailhead and in leaving the parking area. Having a spotter to help back... 更多
A nice hike with a beautiful beach at the end. Fine with kids, but is a bit steep with lots of roots sticking up--definitely a tripping hazard if you're not careful. The trees and moss were fun to see; it did look magical! Trail head is super hard to find, maybe a mile north of Heceta light house turn off.... 更多
The parking area for the trailhead is completely blocked by Oregon DOT vehicles while they are doing extensive road work on 101. We learned the hard way after waiting in the line for one-way traffic. You can get there via a Washburne State Park campground trail or via Heceta Lighthouse, both 3-4 miles RT with elevation. We had an older... 更多
The Hobbit Trail and Beach is a rewarding outdoor activity frequently mentioned in Coastal Oregon travel books and on travel websites. It seems longer than it's advertised 1/2 mile length (from trailhead to beach) because it involves a change in elevation: down to the beach from street-level and then back up. Also, there are steps and occasional tree roots that... 更多
Located about 11 miles North of Florence on Hwy 101 is the Hobbit hiking trail. I have been here several times. It's a great place to hike and unwind. It's at least an hours hike depending on how far you walk. Beautiful,quiet,sunny location.
This is one of the coolest hikes in the area! It's easy and short and feels enchanted with the lush greenness of the vegetation and the strangely bent trees. It leads to a beautiful beach with amazing views. You want to do this hike!
It may be easy to zip past the small roadside parking area for the trail, but this is well worth the effort to find. A beautiful walk through the trees and rhododendrons takes to you an almost-empty beach. If you're there at low tide, there are great tide pools to explore. Definitely worth the effort to get to.
