The Otter Point Secret Trail at Otter Point State Recreation Site in Gold Beach, Oregon is an easy 0.2-mile out-and-back trail that leads to a beautiful vista of Gold Beach.

This is a short, yet dynamic trail tucked away alongside the Old Coast Road outside of Gold Beach State Park. The beginning of the trail is very plain and unattractive, but it doesn't take long until the short trail reveals its true beauty. In just under a minute you enter another world that feels prehistoric with trees growing over the trail and steep hillsides adjacent to the trail. The steep hillside brings risk as you walk down a smooth dirt path with a dark drop-off to the side.

Not long after entering the trail, it opens up to an amazing view of an untouched Beach, where the hike can continue; however, the trail can often be overgrown. Hikers may not always be able to reach the beach from this trail due to the overgrowth.

Pets: Dogs are allowed if leashed and their waste must be carried out by the hiker.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
