We traveled to this area based on a friend's recommendation to see Thor's Well. However, we were pleasantly surprised to find out that this area had a lot more to offer than just one natural phenomenon. Granted, Thor's Well was amazing and was my personal favorite attraction. But, we also were able to hike the area and saw Cook's Chasm,... More

So glad we 'happened' on this place. Vacationing in Newport and restaurant staff recommended this as a 'must see'. OMG! It is! Views, trails & paths all beautiful beyond words for seeing and appreciating the granduer of the Pacific coast in Oregon.

I have lived in Oregon all my life and have never seen this! It was so worth the wait! Go see it when the tide is coming in or it would be fun if it was stormy! I thought this was so pretty to see and the walk down wasn't bad, zig zag so it's not steep. I am going... More

This was a nice short hike to the Devils Churn... nice geology and a nice beach down another short hike. It was a great place to stop and stretch our legs on the 101.

Explore the tidal pools and visit Devil's Churn. We found it best to park at the first opportunity and walk as the parking can be tight as the day goes on.

At least 3 or 4 places you'd want to get out and walk around / hike a bit to take in the beautiful scenery.

Cape Perpetua is fabulous, I could have spent all day there, just watching the waves and rocks. There are a number of parking lots and short trails. We started at the Devil's Churn, leaving our car there to walk to the other attractions. The lady who owns the coffee kiosk there warned us that it's 20 minute parking only, but... More
