Beautiful coastline and viewpoint
Aug 2021
This is a beautiful part of the mid Oregon coast, with a wonderful viewpoint offering breathtaking views up and down the coast. There are a number of good trails here as well, and the coast offers attractions such as Thor's Well and the Devil's Churn.

One of natures finest
Sep 2021 • Friends
Beautiful area! The coastline is so dramatic, & the woods nearby are beautiful- such a contrast in nature. If you go to Oregon, you definitely need to stop and explore this area. It is one of natures finest!

A most expansive breathtaking vistas. Plenty of places to atop for day use and walking. Be aware of changing weather and dress accordingly. Have fun on the beach.

Spectacular location despite the incredible winds!
Sep 2021
Being photographers, this is a place that you must see. The coast line is very rough with spectacular features including spectacular waves and water spouts. We parked at the second parking lot which meant that we walked back about 1/4 mile, but there were many wonderful views along the way. Be prepared for the winds though. One person told us that the reason that it was called Cape Perpetua was the perpetual winds. That might not have been the reason, but the winds were significant.

Visitor Center closed
Aug 2021
We actually drove past & did the visitor center on the way back. Good thing, since it was closed. No reason given why. The bathrooms were open though with flush toilets.
We walked around the visitor center & left.

Definitely stop at Devils Churn & Cooks Chasm. Those 2 areas are worth it.

Definitely Worth Stopping
Jul 2021
The Cape Perpetua Area pertains to different sites (Sprouting Horn, Thor's Well, Devil's Churn). Each one is worth a stop but there might be some issues with parking because the area is quite popular.

There are no Day Use fees for any of these sites and it is worth a stop nor does it require a huge amount of effort. Even when we came on Monday 7/26 in the middle of the afternoon, the area was quite crowded.

Gorgeous views of the Oregon Coast -- Worth the drive up the hill to get the stunning views. Sunset was spectacular!

Worth the stop!
Jul 2021
This was a beautiful stop for a gorgeous view of the coast. Be sure to take the trail down to the stone building. We spotted a grey whale from that viewing point. Truly a magnificent view.

Beautiful Park, nice trails
Jul 2021 • Couples
Great hikes and well marked trails. We spent the late afternoon here and hiked the discovery trail, very scenic through the forest area with glimpses of the ocean. It has a pretty good uphill climb until you get to the high point then it gradually comes back down. There are other trails that branch off and all signage clearly marks distance and direction.

The visitor center had closed while we were on our hike (4pm), but had maps and other information if you visited when it was open. A sandwich board out front had some information on hours.

The trails to the Devil’s Churn, Spouting Horn and Thor’s Well were very nicely paved and clearly marked. These trails had a few steps but were easy to hike.

Let the Visitor Center staff help you find a hike/walk
Jun 2021
In the forest, with ocean views, on the beach, easy or only for seasoned hikers...there is a walk or overlook for you. The kind and patient staff at the Visitor Centers are a great resource. They helped us find out perfect forest hike which we'll do again whenever we return. So many tourists miss how beautiful the coastal forest is.
