Nice trail to some tidepools and great views. Worth a stop and was free so why not. A river runs through into the ocean near the beach as well

As you drive through this section of the Oregon coast there are numerous turn outs that offer awesome photo opportunities. This one had a short downhill hike that ends up at one of the better ones. Check the local tide tables and time your visit for high tide to view this at it's full fury. When you done drive up to the top of Cape Perpetua and view it from 800 feet above.

Was heading down the coast and decided to pull in quickly to take in the sight.
The parking was easy... the walk to view was very close however, if you want to take the steep path to the bottom to get closer, you can do that too. We just stayed at the top and took some pics. Cool sight!
Glad we stopped.

Devil's Churn is a great place to visit. It is best seen at high tide or right after a storm if you want to see the waves at their roughest. There is a path/trail you can take to go right down to the water's edge. But be very cautious as the pictures show. A quarter mile south is Thor's Well which is really awesome to see as well (and also best at high tide).

Not to be missed. At high tide is the best sighting. Along the coast is Thor's Well, Cooks Chasm & Sprouting Horn. However, be careful of "Sneaker Waves". Enjoy the sites, but don't ruin your vacation by not respecting the ocean waves.
