Dogs (leashed)

Pistol River South Access Trail at Pistol River State Park in Gold Beach, Oregon is an easy 0.2-mile out-and-back trail that features stunning views of Oregon's rugged coastline.

This trail is very short, but gives hikers access to the beach, just south of Meyers Beach, and the Pistol River. Hikers can also enjoy plenty of open space along the beach for longer, more difficult hikes.

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

Warnings: Beware of rip currents if swimming, stay off of drift wood logs to avoid injury, and watch for sneaker waves (large waves that unexpectedly wash far into the shore).

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
