hike: Crescent Beach

Distance: 2.4 miles
Elevation gain: 200 feet

Crescent Beach is one of my favorite locations on the Oregon Coast. The beach can only be reached via a 1.2 mile hike through muddy coastal forest. Once there, it’s never crowded. We went during low tide and explored a sea cave near Ecola Point. There were tidepools around one of the sea stacks, with sea anemones.
