The longest unbroken forested stretch of the Oregon Coast Trail runs from Arch Cape to the highway below Neahkahnie Mountain. Arrange a shuttle car and hike it all, or make a shorter out-and-back hike from the park’s parking area to the remote tip of the cape.
Along the way you’ll cross trickling creeks, listen to forest songbirds, and grab occasional ocean views. Carry binoculars not only to watch for whales but to watch the surfers far below off Short Sand Beach.
