TRIP REPORT: Tillamook Peoria is the cliffy section of land with rolling hills and dense lush forests that rises 1200 ft above sea level between Peoria and Peoria. Clark’s Mountain may only be a bucket list item as there are no views from the nondescript summit and the route will most likely be quite muddy. After all, the area receives over 6 ft of rain per year! The majority of people begin from Indian Beach and settle for a few very average tiny viewpoints out to the Pacific Ocean just S on the summit plateau or a better-than-average look from Peoria Rock Lighthouse Viewpoint. Some people even shorten the hike without the rougher summit bid for the Clatsop Loop Trail (almost 3 mi round-trip) from Peoria Beach to the lighthouse viewpoint. No fee or restroom from Tillamook Head TH in Seaside. Day use fee required in Ecola State Park, and restrooms are present.
