Cascade Head Trail – Not Really For Little Kids

Took a three and four year old hiking to Cascade Head and got some good trip planning advice from a couple ladies who just completed a three hour hike. Not really a hike for little kids.

Posted by Lincoln City Homepage on Tuesday, March 20, 2018

Cascade Head Trail is a hiking destination that attracts people from all over. The two ladies I talked to in this video were from Portland and their names were Karen and Lark. They said it was beautiful on the trail and it was a near perfect day except for the trail was “a little mucky.” They hiked for about three hours and said it was pretty steep but worth the effort.

My three and four year old enjoyed the first leg of the trail but after I met with the two hikers mentioned above, my wife and I decided to come back by ourselves when we had a babysitter in place.

A beautiful and physically challenging place to enjoy the outdoors here on the Oregon Coast just north of Lincoln City.

Full hike video coming soon.

  1. I can’t thank you enough for stating this hike is not for little kids. I’ve actually seen women carrying infants headed to this trail and little kids in flip-flops or no shoes at all. All it takes is a little slip on what is often a muddy trail . . .where is the common sense.

  2. I’ve done this hike when my daughter was 2 1/2 years old and my other daughter when she was 5 years old. Was it muddy? Yes. At this time of the year, during spring-like months, trails tend to be muddy, that’s just common sense. Just be prepared. Take healthy snacks and water. We teach our girls to stay on the trail, share the trail and respect nature. Also stay by and when it gets steep or questionable to hold our hands.
