Hike along Short Beach, Oregon

0.25 Miles Round Trip - 200 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Short Beach - Search Nearby - Added by Jason Horstman

A short little hike down to a semi-secluded beach with a manmade waterfall, and a long stretch of beach with great views of the Oregon coast and Pacific Ocean.

Hike:
The trail is basically a handmade wooden staircase that takes you all the way down to the beach, so once you locate it, just keep following the stairs all the way down until you've reached the beach.

Directions:
Drive North along Cape Meares Loop Rd just past Oceanside until you reach the point where it intersects Short Creek. You'll most likely see other cars parked along the road. There's a short trail that descends on the West side of the road right near the creek.

Best Beach

Found this beach through a friend; if you want to see starfish, sand dollars and agates, this is the place. We were able to go through the cave and saw the beach on the other side. Go at low tide and don't dally!!

A Treasure on the coast!

My absolute favorite beach on the Oregon Coast! Beautiful agates, a hidden tunnel, no crowds and an awsome little trail.
