Mike Miller Park Educational Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This short loop trail was designed to introduce Lincoln County school children to a variety of coastal forest habitats, including some examples of mature trees, with huge stumps from long ago logging and trees downed by the wind.

For the rest of us, it provides a pleasant, easy, forested loop hike. Follow the trail uphill a short distance to where it splits into a loop."

"This short interpretive trail explores a unique coastal forest ecosystem in the Mike Miller Educational Area. You'll hike past old-growth Sitka spruce trees and huge rhododendrons and over a small creek where you may see blue herons, ducks, and geese feeding.

This interpretive trail winds through a coastal forest made up
of shore pine, Sitka spruce, Douglas fir, grand fir, and western hemlock.The route follows an old railroad grade that
once was used to transport lumber (and later, passengers and
mail) from Yachats to Yaquina Bay. Before you start the hike,
be sure to pick up a trail brochure, which points out the
trail’s highlights. The gravel trail is lined with Pacific rhododendrons that grow to more than 30 feet tall."

Good multigenerational family trail, including infant in "Baby Bjorn". Was a bit muddy in low places, but could always find good footing to avoid slipping. Ups & downs spaced well apart, nice benches for grandparents to rest (or younger generation to sit and wait for us to catch up!). Dogs went, too. Mossy trees, rhodies, nice wooden stairs/bridges where appropriate for terrain.
