In a lot of other states, warm sunny days mean lazy afternoons spent lounging on the beach. Leave it to Oregonians to pack hiking shoes with their bathing suits.
From towering Neahkahnie Mountain to the chasms of Cape Perpetua, there are hiking trails that run up and down the gorgeous coastline, exploring the forests, dunes, tide pools and beaches that make it up.
The most iconic hikes include easy strolls, solid day hikes and one seriously big adventure to see it all. One of the best things about hiking the Oregon coast is how easily you can access such incredible views, experiencing natural beauty not just from concrete and sand but from relatively isolated dirt trails.
Whether you decide to climb a mountain or take a quick walk down to the beach, there’s nothing quite like a pretty day on the Oregon coast.
