Starting Point: Cape Lookout Trail head (Near Netarts)
*5 mile out-and-back
*Crowded! We got to the trail head at 10:00 am and there was plenty of parking. The hike took us 2 1/2 hours and by the time we returned the parking lot was packed! It was a sunny summer Saturday though. This would be a nice one to do on a sunny winter day.
There are 3 different ways you can go at the trail head. We took the Cape trail and stayed to the right at the first cross roads. It was very muddy in some parts. The trees were beautiful!
This was a cool tree. My brother said that native americans shaped the branches when the trees were young to indicate there was a bend in the trail.
Early on in this hike you’re rewarded with spectacular views.
The trail ends with this view of endless blue:
There is a bench to enjoy the view. Then you just go back the way you came. 🙂
