Threemile Lake South Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"It is not unusual to find a number of people camping on the beach at the end of Sparrow Park Road- some of them apparently camping long term.
It is pretty remote, and more pleasantly remote the farther south you walk on the beach toward the north spit- you are quite unlikely to see anyone else."
--Bonnie Henderson , Day Hiking Oregon Coast (The Mountaineers Books).
"A relatively little-used trail leads to the south end of Threemile Lake. The forest through which the trail leads is deep and lush, and the quiet beach at the lakeshore is tempting for overnight camping. Be aware, however, that the trailhead is on a remote road not regularly patrolled, and vandalism (especially to cars left overnight) is more likely to be a problem here than at more well-used trailheads such as that for the north access to Threemile Lake."
--Bonnie Henderson, Day Hiking: Oregon Coast (The Mountaineers Books).
"The trail to the north end of hidden Threemile Lake leads through lush forest, some of the most gorgeous woods on the coast. Hike it round trip, or combine it with a long amble on a remote stretch of beach for one of the most appealing hikes on the Oregon coast."
