St. Perpetua Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"Steep, forested Cape Perpetua dominates the coastline south of Yachats. It's formed of layers of lava cooled into basalt and uplifted millions of years ago.
This trail up and even over the cape's tip is one of several options available to hikers in Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. You could drive to the top of the cape, but then you would miss the view to the south."
--Bonnie Henderson , Day Hiking Oregon Coast (The Mountaineers Books).
"You can hike or drive to the viewpoint where the Whispering Spruce Trail begins. It is barrier-free for the first 200 feet, allowing those in wheelchairs or those who have difficulty in walking, to experience the same grand views. Special attractions: Wildflowers are a special treat in the spring; enjoy a lovely Sitka spruce forest and wonderful views of the Pacific all year."
--Donna Lynn Ikenberry, Hiking Oregon (Ikenberry) (Falcon Guides).
