This may be off the beaten path a bit, but well worth the trip. Several stairs down, but if you're not up for stairs, there's a bench before them where you can sit and watch everything. Not only is the well cool (how often do...More

Short walk to get to the location. Multiple people closer to the well than we would consider. Be cautious of the ocean conditions.

Located off 101 not far from Cape Perpetua scenic view point you find Thor’s Well. It is a great little hike that is accessible until the very end. Then you have to climb some rocks to get down to the well.

The sign on the 101 does not say "Thor's Well", but Goggle maps will take you there. Look at tide charts, it will be much more spectacular to see at high tide. You can hike here from Devil's Churn, but the trail pretty much runs...More

Small hike to get down close to Thors well, but you can see it from the parking lot just not up close. I went down the short trail and climbed over some rocks to get close to it but not on the edge, although I...More
