    Beautiful trail with overhanging vegetation. Easy to walk. About 1/4 mile into the hike there is sand so have appropriate footwear.

    First things first: $5 fee area, but there isn't a place to pay here. About a mile south of here is the Tahkenitch Campground. There's a place to pay there so that you can have the stub as proof of payment in your car. There's also a separate trailhead there that meets up with the Tahkenitch Creek Trail near the beach. However, it is often busy with people. The Tahkenitch Creek Trailhead has less parking available, but fewer people visit. There is a single bathroom. The trail itself is well-maintained, but the only maps you will find are small wooden maps along the trail itself. There are quite a few "small trails" that branch off of the main trails, but it's not too difficult to figure out which is the main. The trek is pretty easy and about 2.5 miles to the beach. There isn't anything special about this portion of Oregon coastline. But it's a nice reward for making the journey. In October and November, the trail is full of various mushrooms and other fungi. I included pictures as examples. Overall, it's a pleasant trail. I highly recommend taking it during mushroom season for the best experience.

    Awesome hiking place. Safe parking. Fee required! Or pass for parks in Oregon or pass National parks allowed!

    With America the Beautiful pass the day use fee is covered and since it's open 24 hours a day I parked overnight on my way north. Local campground host said the rangers will allow this if not abused by moving in permanently.
