Location: Coastal Mountains at Ecola State Park; Oregon Coast
Distance: 3 miles roundtrip
Elevation Gain: 400 ft.
This is a 3 mile hike we did with friends. Ecola State Park is along the coast between Cannon Beach and Seaside. The hike starts at the Ecola Point parking lot and goes through the forest and hills next to the ocean. In several places, the path takes you along steep cliffs with great views of the ocean and beaches. We stopped at Indian Beach and then headed back the same way. The trails go on for several more miles and there is a hike-in campsite that I would like to try sometime.
