Stretching 14 km (9 mi) along the Pacific, Ecola State Park features lush forests, open ocean views, wildlife, nature trails, and picnic spots. Hiking through the forest, you'll come across cliff-side viewpoints, offering views of secluded coves, forested promontories, and an abandoned lighthouse. Wear good hiking boots and be ready for deer, elk, eagle, and whale encounters. There may be surfers and beach goers on some of the shores, as well as groups of people gathered to watch marine life that has adapted to living on the rocks in the shallow ocean pools.

  • When open (the road into the park has a tendency to wash out and close the park for weeks/month), Ecola is the best place to experience the Oregon coast. The beach is easily accessible and not too crowded, especially if you walk further away from the parking lot. Surfing conditions here are excellent for beginners and the experienced alike, but as always check the conditions before heading out. The views down onto Cannon Beach and Haystack Rock are spectacular and worth the drive alone.
  • Good stuff a nice path. Picnic tables one small fire pit. A cool little mouse. A couple of good spots to look over the cliff. Got to see a nest of bald eagles. Cool cool
