How does one rate mother earth's creations? I guess it's Ok to do :) Devil's Churn is awesome, in the truest sense of the word. Go there, enjoy the site and also catch Spouting Horn and Thor's Well. Hike to the top of the mountain behind where you stand to see these features to see a really cool stone shelter... More

I visited Devil's Churn during low tide. The views were breathtaking and the prime location just off Highway 101 was great. But unfortunately there was no churning, no crashing, no awe-inspiring spectacle. So I do recommend being aware of high tide. The visitor's center nearby offered tide charts, so those can come in really handy.

You can feel the force of the Pacific crashing against the rocks. An awe-inspiring site. The whole Cape Perpetua Area is a great spot to hike, have lunch, spend a few hours. It's beautiful and not crowded.

This is one of my two favorite spots on this earth - Infact I have dragged as adults my children there yet again to show them where my ashes should go. The spot is amazing - Make sure to get a good tide chart and be there when tide is coming in towards high tide. The waves smashing into the... More

Everyone in our travel group loved this and couldn't take themselves away from viewing...at many locations. A great stop (one of many) along the Pacific Coast Highway 101--not to be missed. I found the southern portion of the coast the most enjoyable. this is quick, park the car and walk a bit; but worth it. Great photo op and wonderful... More

The Devil's Churn makes an excellent quick stop on your drive along the coast. You can observe the roaring waters from the parking lot or walk a short distance down for a more close up view. It's very dramatic either way. There are restrooms available in the parking lot too.

What's to say? It's always a thrilling place to observe. We didn't walk down the cliff but you can see all you want from the parking area.

Fun to visit like all the other coastal sites. It will show you the power of the ocean. How can all that soft looking water be so harsh? Definitely wouldn't want to try and swim in it!
