We always love stopping here for a hike or stroll on their many trails. The best view can be had at the top, at the stone shelter. It's a short walk to an amazing view. Take a coat, it is often gusty and cold.

The visitors center was much bigger and newer than we expected. There was some very nice interactive displays for children and the whale watching deck was quite nice. The staff were also very helpful and gave excellent tips on hiking, safety (a very good idea...More

We drove the entire Oregon Coast. This was one of our favorite stops. It's busy and not a lot of parking. So arrive earlier than later. Views are spectacular. Vintage Oregon Coast. What you expect to see when you think of the Oregon coastline.

Some of the most beautiful scenery along the Oregon coastline. Despite the rainy weather (Hey, it's Oregon!), we enjoyed a great day hiking and visiting some of the main sites in the area such as Thor's Well and Devils' Churn. There's a nice interpretive center...More

In my opinion, the most beautiful, spectacular, jaw dropping part of the mighty OC! Stop at the Devils Churn and pick up an espresso and fresh made brownie by Ky along with many other goodies. Close by is the cape Perpetua visitors center. Cooks Chasm...More

The trails in and around the cape are all excellent, low difficulty treks. You will be rewarded with beautiful vistas and sights. Witness the beauty and fury of the sea at Devils Churn and Thor's Well, with plenty of crashing surf, and incredible spouting horns....More

If you have any challenges, there are lots you can park in and walk along the beach. That is magnificent in itself, as this has the feel of a virgin Pacific coast section. Starfish, blow holes, surf crashing on rocks, but a... More
