Be sure to drive to the summit on a sunny day for great views and carefully explore the Thor's well and churn area.

The stretch of Highway from Yachats to Florence is ine of the most spectacular in the country. The Devils Churn, Strawberry Hill, Neptune Beach and Bob's Creek are all must sees.

The visitors center is closed, but a relatively short drive takes you to an 800 foot high vantage point, where you get a great look at the coastline south of the Cape. Worth the drive. We did not drive to the nearby giant spruce tree.

We visited at low tide so we got to see tide pools but I bet that Thor’s Well at high tide would be breath taking. I was still amazed by it and Devil’s Churn as well as the view of the ocean. The orange things on the rock are starfish and we also saw crab. It’s gorgeous and majestic and was my favorite stop on the coast.

It’s worth taking the time to hike the trails to Thor’s Well, The Spouting Horn at Cooks Chasm and the Devils Churn. There’s more wave action when nearing high tide. Turn East off of Hwy101 at the campgrounds and stay left (not entering the campgrounds to drive to the highest viewpoint on the Oregon Coast (800 ft). It’s just a short walk from the parking lot to the west Shelter Observation Point which was constructed for WW II. It’s a spectacular view on a clear day.
