After we got water proof shoes, we went for a hike. Between Cannon Beach and Seaside is a cliff called Tillamook Head, which you can get to from either side. This is the hike where we stopped was coming from the Ecola SP/Cannon Beach side. We attempted this hike yesterday, but it was VERY muddy and wet, so decided to turn around.
After we got our shoes, we started from the Seaside side. We were on it for a bit and I realized that I hadn’t look at the map and was unsure how long it would take. Ralph said he thought about 3.5 miles! This was right after we ate a big mexican lunch, and didn’t have any water with us!
The shoes worked great in keeping our feet dry, but it was very muddy and slippery. There was even a landslide that we “bush wacked ” thru, and other places where we were bush wacking-ish.
About 3.5 miles in, Ralph wonders if we will know it when we see it [the point], and we still don’t see “it” at 4 miles.
It was all trees, NO clearing/view. We go a little further, and realize that there must NOT be any “marker” or anything acknowledging the point, so we turned around.
When we get back to the trailhead and map, I see that the point is about 4.2 miles! Oh well. We did have a Blizzard after the hike.
