Set along US 101 coastal highway is the Neahkanie Mountain loop hike  (North & South Neahkanie trailheads). The North trail is longer than the South with a total one-way length of 2.7 miles and an elevation gain of around 1450 feet to the highest trail-able point on the mountain. Alternatively the South trail gains around 850 feet in some 1.6 miles. It is an easy hike which may take anywhere between 60 mins to 120 mins (times may vary) to reach the so-called high point. Note the high point is easy to miss and before you know you will be on your way down the other side.

The views are great subject to fog, clouds or simply the time of the day. These pictures were taken in January 2013.
