Spectacular Coastline

This may be the most beautiful part of Oregon's coastline, and that is saying a lot! There are a number of areas to walk down and explore the tide pools and many photo ops.

Loved the amazing views that we had seen at Cape Perpetua. Its also known as Thor's Well.. Captivating you as you watch the waves come into the rocks. Its walkable do expect to get wet.

This area was what inspired my hubby & I to travel to Oregon . The Ocean is breathtaking and driving the 101 hwy is a must do. We spent 1 month driving with our travel trailer down from Alberta . Tons of miles but you only live once

We stopped to see the Giant spruce and didn't realize we should have hiked down to the water to see the bowl. Dang. Cause the spruce was really not that exciting. And it was a bit of a hike to get there. Part of the trail was closed too and we realized we could have pretty much driven to it.... More

The visitor center at Devils churn was awesome. While getting a day pass and hiking map she recommended sticking around to see Thor's Well. My son had been wanting to see it for years. She also let us know that Spouting Horn and Devils churn was also happening. After a grueling 12 mile hike, seeing these 3 was icing on... More

Where do I start? Cape Perpetua offers SO MUCH to see and do. There are hiking trails, camp sites, a spouting horn, an ancient shell midden, Cook's Chasm, Devil's Churn, a wonderful visitor's center, Thor's Well, and the best view on the entire Oregon Coast.

This is a wonderful spot from which to view the coast. A gorgeous place--you can drive up to the top and simply walk to the viewing area.

We loved this entire area. Plenty of easy to navigate trails that take you along the beach and through majestic woods. Lots of pull outs along the coastal highway, a very informative visitor's center, and restrooms are all a part of this area. Make sure you have a full tank of gas, as there aren't a lot of service stations... More

From the viewpoint hike at the top to the visitors center, to the tidal pools this is a destination place.
