  • Usually only visible in Cannon Beach, and I recommend it to me, before I go, and happy saving in South of Cannon Beach. Cannon Beach is a magnificent, on the other hand, here's a nice little Beach, such as hidden and non-elapsed.

  • I always love the walk through the Park to Short Sands beach, sitting on driftwood and watching the surfers ride the waves. To the north a bit is Cape Falcon, where there's a nice hike out to Falcon Point, which has a pretty stunning view of this section of the coast. The hike is 2.5 miles each way. I recommend hiking boots rather than tennis shoes - it can get very muddy in parts.
  • Beautiful trails through old growth forest. The trails are well maintained and clearly marked. The beach is wide and flat, perfect for strolls.
  • One of my favorite places ...must stop at the overlook just before you go down the hill on the coast highway into manzanita
  • Hwy 101. "The Cliffs". Great place to come up and catch a few ZZs at night. Hwy patrol allows it. Also, the bluff just below, north of here. I checked with the local cops too...safe zone.
  • Beautiful, secluded beach with a day camp area. It's an easy hike in, although sometimes the trail gets a little muddy. Old growth redwoods make this a beautiful hike.
