Short trail, it was well maintained and leads you to a botanical garden walk through. I would say it's a good beginner hike/walk with gradual incline and steps. There are no dogs allowed at the botanical garden but the rest of trail you can bring a dog. Not stroller/wheelchair friendly. Mostly shaded, it doesn't lead to a view point but the trail itself is the beauty.
It's a pretty hike. I read previous reviews saying it was a short easy beginner hike, and I'd say as a person who has hiking experience but is starting out again this is not a short beginner hike. It had some really good inclines on it and it was roughly a mile. It does lead you to the gardens not too far away which was beautiful. Once you walk through you can either turn around and walk all the way back, or walk down to 101 on the road.
Beautiful, lush, short hike. Was able to do it bare foot as there was a soft ground with plenty of steps installed on inclines. Trees were unreal. Loved it
Scenic hike through old growth forest. Trail is muddy in spots during rainy season. There is a botanical garden at the end but they don’t allow dogs past the gate. I highly suggest turning around and following the trail back the way you came unless you want to walk through a residential area and then down Hwy 101 to get back to where you started. 0.8 miles each way.
Great little trail tucked behind an apartment complex in Yachats, perfect for a morning hike after breakfast before you hit the beach. The trail starts uphill & has some stairs, so not accessible for wheelchair users. It's .9 miles and ends at the Gerdemann Botanical Preserve, which is only open by appointment. It's a beautiful forest and the path is well maintained. Look for blooming Trillium in the spring.
