Owner description: Tidal Pools along Oregon Coast Highway
Reviewed 23 July 2018

Devils Churn is a place to see the intense power of the ocean as it crashes against the rocks of the Oregon coastline and sprays up into the air. I saw this at a lower tide with moderate surf and it was pretty cool, but at a higher tide or at least an incoming tide, it would be spectacular. Wear sturdy hiking shoes for better footing on the stairs and rocks - they are slippery.

Although I saw this in July, I plan on going back to see the winter storms hit the rocky coast line. It is worth seeing in the Summer; but during a high tide and a winter storm, it should be really spectacular.

So this is one of the few spots I didn’t get to visit on my 101 trip from Reedsport to Astoria. Was SUPER packed on our drive up AND down and decided it would have to be a next time trip. Sucks that tourists from out of state etc can see this no prob but when Oregonians want to explore their own state we have to wait for the tourists. It’s annoying.

Gorgeous sight. I was so glad I was able to see this. Parking not an issue; was an easy pull over to see.

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
