Hobbit Beach to Heceta Head Lighthouse

This hike is pure magic. When I heard there was a place in Oregon called Hobbit beach I knew I would have to check it out and it did not disappoint! 

The trailhead is located just outside of Florence on Hwy 101. You have to pull out on a small gravel parking lot, then cross the highway. (No fees)

Follow the short trail to the right first to take you to Hobbit beach. (Watch out for orcs)

Hobbit beach:

Follow the path back the way you came to the main sign and take the trail the other way to Heceta Head lighthouse. This part is pretty steep but there are some great ocean views.

Once you reach the lighthouse you can go inside to warm up and may even catch a free tour to learn about the history.

When you finish enjoying the views you head back the way you came to the gravel parking lot. 

This was one of my favorite Oregon hikes!
