This area is breathtakingly beautiful. We went when the high tide was starting to recede so we were able to see the Spouting Horn and Thor's Well and still got to walk around on the rocks. Highly recommended.

Classic Oregon coast, winding trails through endless green, popping through to rocky beaches and tide pools and the captivating Devil's Churn

Go at high tide for best experience. Spouting Horn was amazing. Devil's Churn looked like the name implies. Paved walkway, easy walk. Steps to get down to the actual Spouting Horn and Churn, but you can see them very well at the steps.

This was a gorgeous place. We thoroughly enjoyed all the sights and sounds that nature provided, and the volunteers in the Interpretive Center were friendly and helpful. The hike to the Giant Spruce, however, was not "easy" for us as the brochure led us to believe. We're 60ish, and we found it to be a bit challenging.

Arrived at Cape Perpetua on a very stormy day. When parking at the turn-out at the cape it was very windy so the car rocked back and forth. Rain was blowing horizontally across. Not a good day to get out of the car and hazard a look. Not a good idea. I was able to barely hang on to the... More

We drove through the Cape Perpetua area and also stopped and took the short trail down to look at Thors Well and the blow hole, very cool.

We drove up to the lookout and had a nice walk - great view! We had a clear day for it. We probably spent ~1 hour walking along the rocks from the blow spout to thors well to the devils churn. It's a great stop and you can easily enjoy an hour here.

Just loved this area, so relaxing and pretty. Stopped on my way back to Florence. Was lucky the weather was fairly good, not a lot of wind and some sun.

It's quite a dramatic coastline with waves crashing onto the rocks. There are various places to stop off i.e. Devils Churn and the Spouting Horn. If you go to the Spouting Horn try and go at high tide - more dramatic effect. It's worth going to the visitors centre were you can watch short films which gives you a better... More

My tour group hiked both the Rocky Shore Loops and the Giant Spruce Trail. The Rocky Shore Loops had a number of steps (flat, log boxes filled with packed dirt and perhaps small black rocks. There were a lot of them, but the were not to tall (steep) to cause knee discomfort. The loop overlooks The Spouting Horn (a collapsed... More
