Located just about 5 miles north of Florence along the Oregon Coast, Baker Beach provides a somewhat easy access to the sandy beach where western snowy plovers make their nests and horseback rides are popular. With more equestrian trails across Highway 101 and a local stable providing rides, the horses sometimes outnumber the people.

The trail leading to the beach is just about half a mile through the grassy dunes. For a longer hike, follow the Lily Lake Trail to the northeast or the longer Baker Beach Trail through the forest to the south. The beach itself is long and wide, which allows for great beachcombing and birdwatching.

The parking area for the trailhead is connected to the Baker Beach Campground and includes a vault toilet and pay station.

Note: The dry sand beach is closed March 15 through September 15 due to snowy plover nesting. Visitors must remain on the trail and once on the beach walk on wet sand only, close to the water's edge. Dogs, kites, drones, and vehicles (including bikes) are prohibited during this time. Please check posted signs before heading out on the beach.
