    Join your Adventure Coach for an epic and memorable North Coast hike. Choose from:

    Cape Trail – This 4.7-mile trail meanders through a rare and lush coastal old-growth forest and enormous ferns, featuring sweeping views of the seascape along the path. At the tip of the cape, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning 240’ view and a lovely spot to rest before the return home.

    South Trail – Take the less-traveled and moderate 3.6-mile trail that descends through a forest of Sitka spruce, a myriad of fern species, and salmon berries. At the base of the towering cape the trail opens up to a secluded beach where bald eagles soar above, and agates lay hidden in the sand.

    Drift Creek Falls – Join your Adventure Coach for an hour-long drive along beautiful, winding coastal roads to the trailhead of this less-traveled trail. This 3.75-mile out-and-back hike meanders through lush Douglas fir and Sitka spruce forest to a dramatic and picturesque waterfall. The best views of the falls are from the trail’s popular 240-foot-long suspension bridge that towers above a 66-foot-deep basalt gorge where the north fork of Drift Creek runs.
