“ends overlooking the Pacific Ocean”

Hart's Cove Trail traverses steep hillsides to a grassy meadow overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The trail is closed from January 1st to July 15th. This trail descends about 900 feet in elevation through a Sitka Spruce-Western Hemlock rain forest, crosses two seasonal creeks and ends at a prairie headland overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Chitwood Falls cascades off the backside cliff at Hart's Cove. An unseen cove to the south resounds with the barking of sea lions. Directions from Lincoln City: Follow Highway 101 north 3.3 miles past its junction with Highway 18 to Forest Route 1861. The trailhead is at the end of 1861.

This was the best part of our trip and we came upon it as we were driving down Highway 101. It wasn't part of our initial trip however it is definitely the most beautiful hike I have ever taken. We pulled off at the first trail head and took about a 1.7 mile hike through the dense Oregon forest into a golden meadow overlooking the ocean. Keep following the trail though - we went to the edge of the cliff and was able to see whales and sea lions in the cove below. So breathtaking was the view that it left me speechless with tears in my eyes. God's creation at it's most magnificent!!

Important! I don't know if I did it wrong but when I tried to go here, turns out it is private property and needs a code. So unless I missed a different way in that doesn't involve any of that this is in accessible to the public
