A couple weeks ago my husband and I found ourselves with an afternoon kid-free (thanks dad!) and we took a little trip over to the coast where a friend told us of a short hike to a waterfall called Drift Creek Falls close to Lincoln City and Devil's Lake.
I haven't hiked much...and as long as they are fairly easy trails, I think I could get used to it. It took us about an hour total to go in and back, and it was pretty enjoyable. Sometimes just getting back into nature with no cell coverage for even an hour really helps clear your mind.
If you live in Oregon/ SW Washington are there any
trails you would recommend for beginners? We found a few more on our way home, but they were too long and we would have to schedule a day to do them.
