General Advisory

Indian Beach Trail CLOSED. This popular hike usually connects Ecola Point and Indian Beach day use areas. Excessive precipitation from the 2016-17 winter washed out a critical section of trail, requiring a significant re-route. We must plan, obtain permits for and build the new route. It is unknown at this time when that work will be completed. In the meantime, PLEASE do not attempt this trail by creating your own detour. Besides being potentially dangerous, user-created trails can cause serious damage to some of Oregon's most precious natural resources. Thank you for your consideration.
