A gorgeous place to hike! I go here all of the time. Smaller simple trails for beginners and longer tough ones for people who like a challenge, they all connect so you can keep going as long as you’d like. It’s very big for a park by a city! Very shady, beautiful forest and beach trail. You can see the animals up close and even go fishing in specific places.


Many different trails and difficulties. I just let my legs decided which way to go 😊 but I have certain physical limitations so I can't do really rugged trails and I had no problems with the intermediate trails here.

I wanna go back!

My experience at Eagle Creek Beach was awesome. There was so much to see, and so many picture opportunities. I'll definitely be going back soon!
