Tillamook Head is a towering headland that rises more than 1000 feet above the pounding surf of the Pacific Ocean between Cannon Beach and Seaside. This imposing landmark is protected in Ecola State Park, truly one of Oregon’s “crown jewel” parks. Along a route taken by Captain William Clark, Sacagawea, and other members of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, the park is crossed by an enjoyable and historic section of the Oregon Coast Trail that passes through lush coastal rain forests and visits several fine viewpoints. Unlike most other trails along the Oregon Coast, this one also includes a designated backpacker’s campsite, allowing hikers to extend their stay and enjoy the scenery a little longer. The park enforces a three-night maximum for staying at the Hiker’s Camp.
