This place is just fantastic. We loved the view at the West Shelter and the Spouting Holes were awe inspiring. I can't say enough about the whole area. Don't miss it.

Man - we spent 5 hours there enjoying a 1 mile stretch of coast, and could have spent more there, and cannot wait to go back. There is sooo much to do there. Devil's Church, Cooks Chasm, Thor's Well, and The campground. Don't forget that you can also go to the top of the mountain and literally see the ends... More

This iconic spot offers stunning views of the Oregon Coast. You can enjoy sitting in the sun on a bench or taking the short walk down to the stone hut built in the 1930s by the Conservation Corps. Your walk back to the parking lot takes you through a lovely coastal forest with ferns, old trees, Oregon grape and huckleberry.

Be sure to drive or hike to the top for a wonderful view of the coastline. Not suitable for those with mobility issues, due to a very short walk on an uneven surface.

First off stop at the visitor center. The happiest people on the planet will help you figure out how best to see the area given you time and ability. They were so incredibly helpful to help us get the most out of our limited time and take in the breathtaking views. It's a must-do!

Such a beautiful spot. A few hundred feet above the beautiful Pacific Ocean that you can drive to. Overlooking The Devils Churn and coast road.

Visited Devil's Churn, Thor's Well and the Cape Perpetua area on a gorgeous sunny day in early September. Words cannot describe the beauty of this place. The Ocean is breathtaking, the coast is awe inspiring. Great trails to walk on. It will feed your soul and lift your spirit!

Arrived during a storm and wasn't sure I wanted to walk the trails. The gentleman at the visitor center (who said he was rather new the the center) was so enthusiastic about the site that I followed his advice and was not disappointed. Not a long walk but definitely gets you up close to the beautiful scenery that you see... More
