The day we were there, we spotted a sea lion playing in the churn. Bonus! Beautiful walk down to observe the churn ... and nice trails throughout the area. Glad we stopped.

After learning about Devil's Churn on Trip Advisor, we decided to stop and hike the area. The park is beautiful and an easy hike. Devil's Churn was mesmerizing! The powerful waves and motion of the water was amazing to watch. It's definitely worth the stop.

Interesting fissure in the rocks running back towards the highway. When the waves come in they are channeled through the fissure and (can) spray up. You can feel the force in the rocks. Small parking lot, scenic overlook and short trail (<1/4 mile with uneven steps at the end) down to the churn itself. You can walk right out to the edge of the fissure but the footing is uneven and it probably wouldn't go well with you if you fell in. High tide is the best time to see it and we were there at low tide, unfortunately.

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.

The energy of the water was mesmerizing and intimidating all at the same time! Definite a should visit.
