Cape Falcon, Oregon Hiking

Location: South of Cannon Beach
Nearest City: Arch Cape
Length: 5.0 Miles
Elevation Gain: 300 ft
Difficulty: Easy
Forest Pass Required?: No

This is a very nice trail through a rain forest like terrain with large trees, ferns and moss.  When you reach the edge of the cape there are plenty of places to site and absorb the view of the coastline and ocean.

On this trip we saw a woodpecker that didn't mind we were just 10' away while he went about his business.

The trail is pretty easy, and part of it is paved, although there weren't as many people on it as I would have thought.   My girlfriend and I were online for much of the late afternoon as we sat on the edge of the cape overlooking the ocean and coastline and thinking about our dream holidays to Fuerteventura.

From Portland you head west on Hwy 26 and follow signs for Cannon Beach.  Go south on Hwy 101 past Cannon Beach about 9 miles.  There are two access points to the trail, and either one is good.  You'll reach a pull out on the right with a sign pointing to Cape Falcon 2.5 miles.  The trail is pretty easy going.  Your other option is to drive a little further down the road and parked on the left side of the street where there is beach access.  You'd walk through the campground and hook up with the trail.
