This may be my favorite hike in the coast thus far. It has it all: old growth forest, views of the ocean and coast line, a mini waterfall and a nice spot to sit and eat lunch at the end. This hike can be muddy! The first time Aaron and I did it, we were not prepared for this and we were in pretty sloppy condition at the end. The potential for it to be muddy is relative to how early it is in the year. We saw a lot of people doing the hike in galoshes. You'll see Neahkanie Mountain to the south (also a great hike and can easily be done same day as Cape Falcon). I have done this hike 3 times and I plan to keep going back!
After you're done with Cap Falcon, it's worth the short walk south to the beach. You will see the sign for it on your way in and our from the Falcon hike. Below are pictures from that beach a few hours before sunset.
I moved to the Pacific Northwest in August of 2012. I quickly identified myself as a hiker. I want to document my experiences so that I can refer to them for myself and others to provide the best hiking experience. I also hope to learn more about hiking from others comments and recommendations.
