Cape Perpetua Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Take your pick of ten trails that wind through the 2,700-acre Cape Perpetua Scenic Area. Depending on the trail you select, you can experience a botanical wonderland of coastal forest, rocky tide pools, and other ocean spectacles, such as the geyser-like Spouting Horn and the narrow rock channel of Devil’s Churn.

Plan on spending a few hours at the Cape Perpetua Interpretive Center. The center provides a good introduction to the plants and animals that live here, as well as a look into the area’s rich history."

"A network of asphalt paths links several attractions along the Cape Perpetua Shoreline: Devils Churn, Cape Cove Beach, a broad area of tidepools, and Sprouting Horn, to name the highlights. Each is accessible via short walks from parking areas along US Highway 101; this loop hike starts at the interpretive center and takes them all in." Read more
