Hike along Short Beach, Oregon
Oregon › Short Beach
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.
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.
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.
