Beautiful Old-Growth Rainforest

Beautiful Park along the Oregon Coast. It was rainy and windy when we were there but the trails in the woods kep the wind and even the rain off you for the most part.

We were there during the week of March 6. Due to closures of some trails, the Day use fee was waived. The drive into the park is beautiful as it winds through forests with views of the ocean below. The park has trails and picnic benches and even if you don't go to the beach (it was a torrential downpour... More

This is one of the most beautiful places on the north Oregon coast to visit. There is a day use fee, but it is worth the cost, although, at low tide one can hike in from the Cannon Beach area. Best explored during low tide because of all of the sea caves off of Indian Beach. There is a trail... More

Even though most of the trails were closed due to weather conditions/mud, the views from where we could walk were spectacular and we enjoyed learning about how the park was created/preserved.

The drive up to this park is amazing in itself, then you can go two ways, one has great beach access you can surf, wonderful views! The other is a fantastic view of the Tillamook lighthouse, and another great scenic view of Cannon beach a wonderful cliff drop off look out.

You have to time it right, but get down in the morning for an incredible find of all kinds of sea life! Keep an eye on the waves though!

I love Ecola State Park, though I was a bit saddened with my most recent visit. The last massive storm that hit the coast did severe damage to the park, and many more areas are closed than before (for obvious and critical safety reasons). Nonetheless, please continue to visit and support this beautiful park. There are still plenty of gorgeous... More

Drive a couple miles up a small road in a woodsy environment and then walk out to Ecola Point and see the whole Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock and Lighthouse. Gorgeous.

Beautiful park at the north end of Cannon Beach. There is a hike that takes you out to the headland with a view.

Ecola State Park offers lookouts with the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean coast. Really easy to reach and great photo ops.
