Beautiful area to hike. For those interested in a more challenging hike (strenuous), take the St. Perpetua trail to the top for a stunning view of Oregon's coastline.

We truly enjoyed our time exploring this area. There is a scenic walking path, and you can also go down to the shoreline to check out the tide pools. This a great place to enjoy the beauty of the Oregon Coast!

One can experience Cape Perpetua from a safe distance above where there is a wheel chair accessible indoor lookout and easy trails...or one can pull over by HWY 101 and go down to the beach there...but watch out for sneaker waves, they are no joke...also...More

All of the Oregon coast that we visited was spectacular and Cape Perpetua was a highlight with Cook's Chasm, the blow hole and the visitor's center. Well worth the stop for an hour or so.

We were there at the bad moment (tidewise) to see the chasm and devil thing etcetera but did enjoy all the views, walks and tidal pools a lot!

Enjoyed our time here even though it was raining. 2 mike round trip hike to the big tree but it’s easy. Tree is impressive! We didn’t do much else due to time and weather. Staff at visitor’s center was incredibly pleasant.
