Treading through Ecola State Park, I explored rainforest one second and walked out onto sandy beaches the next. There were streams and springs gushing out from the forest floor intertwining with the ocean tide. The 9 mile stretch of Pacific Ocean shoreline of the Tillamook Head is a haven for all locals and tourists looking to encounter a completely diverse ecosystem. When driving in from Ecola Park Road I first parked at Ecola Point and hiked further north to Indian Beach.
