Great Place To Stop!

Well worth stopping to explore the area. The view and wave action is beautiful especially at high tide. Check out the trails too.

Must stop and hike the short distances to Devils Churn, Cooks Chasma and the Spouting Horn. Stop at visitors center and more hikes to second tallest tree in OR, and several other beautiful stops

This is one of my top 5 favorite places in the Western U.S. to go hiking. From the visitors center at the base of the Cape, you can hike down to Devil's Churn, a spectacular basaltic chasm with awe-inspiring surf pounding within it.

Bring your camera- this is a very scenic area along the Oregon coast! High tide is probably best to see the Spouting Horn and Devil's Churn in action, but it's still amazing any time of day! There are some short hiking trails and benches along the way to just sit and soak it all in---so beautiful!!

Don't miss Cape Perpetua on the Oregon Coast. It is one of the most scenic sections of the entire Oregon coast! Spouting Horn, Thor's Well, Devil's Churn are all scenic wonders!

This is a great place to get out of the car and see some great views! The trails to the south are very stroller friendly! The interpretive center has great information for kids. You can take the trail from here or park down by the road and it's stroller accessible! If you go on a stormy day it's amazing to... More

My wife and I flew across the country to get married in the rock hut because of its beauty. Enough said.
