Honeyman State Park , Florence, OR

Honeyman State Park is a part of the State Park system in Oregon. It is a fabulous place to go camping, swimming, and of course, there is a little nature trail that is perfect for tiny little feet. I highly recommend spending a weekend here if you get the chance.

Location: Head south on the I-5 towards Eugene, take exit 569 onto Randy Pape Beltline and continue on that road west. Follow the belt line for almost 10 miles and turn right onto OR-126W/W 11th AVe. Take that road for approximately 55 miles. Turn left onto Hwy 101 for 3 miles and turn right into Honeyman State Park. If you’d like to travel another way, you can go straight south on Hwy 101.

Difficulty: 1/5 – super cute and easy little trail around the lake.

Kid-Friendly: Absolutely – love this little hike (trail)

Stroller/ADA Accessible: This trail would work well for an inline jogging stroller with larger wheels. It’s quite a narrow trail so I wouldn’t recommend a wheelchair or large stroller.

Description: This cute little trail begins in the parking lot near the day use area. Head right and walk around this cute little trail. It’ll lead you to the clubhouse and the boat rental area. There are a few little benches around the trail that you can stop and enjoy the view on.

I can’t say enough about Honeyman State Park. If you come for the trail, stay for the views, the sand dunes, the lake, the amenities, and so much more. Before we headed to this place, I had heard so many good things and they were all true! We went paddle boarding, paddle boating, sand boarding, hiking, and loved playing at the playground.
