Hike Humbug Mountain

Rate this Adventure Oregon Humbug Mountain Parking

Added by John Entwistle

A hike up through amazing rainforest to a mountain on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

Starting out at the pullout on the highway across from the Humbug Mountain State Campground, follow the winding trail up through the forrest to the top of the mountain. There is a nice bench at the top for a snack (or a beer). 

The hike is fairly long and demanding, but isn't too steep due to the switchbacks up the mountain. 

There is a west trail and an east trail - We took the west trail up and down, as it is slightly shorter. You could do this route as a loop as well with going up the west trail, and down the east! 

Pack List

  • Hiking Shoes/ Boots
  • Warm clothing - It can be windy up top!
  • Camera
    • Wide Angle Lens
  • Snacks
