This trail near Tillamook Oregon is good for all skill levels.  The 10.5 mile out and back trail doesn’t see much traffic and offers great scenic views.  Be aware of the tides and what time they come in and don’t lose track of the time so you don’t get trapped by the water.  This is an amazing place to take a long calming walk on the beach without the crowds.  Get more information on the trail here.

3. Golden And Silver Falls Near North Bend Oregon

Not many Oregonians know about these two beautiful falls in the mountains near North Bend Oregon, or about the history of the trail that you can take to get to them.  Check out this short video about the hike and the falls.

The trail is a 1.4 mile out and back trail which is good for all skill levels.  The giant old-growth firs and cedars are amazing to hike through.  Get more info here.
