Oregon Coast

I've only been to the coast once since I moved here so it was time for another visit.

The first hike I did was Cape Falcon. It was drizzling on and off. There is a short side-trail that goes to the beach at Short Sand Beach

Coast trail are famous for their mud

There is a small waterfall before the cape

And lots of shorebirds

Prominent rocks near the cape

And with a closeup, not falcons at Cape Falcons, but Bald Eagles (including a young one not yet bald)

Looking back at Short Sand Beach

Then I headed to Cape Lookout State Park to camp for the night.

Three Rocks

Finally the weather is clearing near sunset

The next morning I hiked two trail segments - Cape Lookout North and Cape Lookout.

Looking back at Netarts Spit

There were a number of these root tunnels

Looking through the forest to the beach

This trail is also famous for mud. The first half is covered with gravel, and then some sections are improved with boardwalk

Some are not

The payoff is big at the end
