Breathtaking views!

Cape Perpetua is about 2 miles south of Yachats along Hwy 101. Drive up to the parking lot (or park below and hike up) to find a series of interconnected trails with established lookout areas. You'll be 800 feet above sea level, on the side of a rugged bluff overlooking the ocean, so as you can imagine, the views are breathtaking. On a clear day, you could even see 30-40 miles of the Oregon coastline. Spend hours hiking the beautiful trails or just simply slow down and take in the views and do some picnicking. There's a great visitor's center nearby which has daily programs within the Cape Perpetua scenic area. It's a great stop for families since it's got natural history exhibits, a theater with nature films, and an interactive children's science area. There's also a Cape Perpetua campground nearby. Cape Perpetua scenic area is a must see! The pictures don't quite do it justice, you just have to experience it yourself!

Old-growth spruce and exploding ocean

Cape Perpetua is a large forested mountain overlooking the wave-slapped central Oregon coast. Some 800 feet above the water, the cape offers views stretching as far as 70 miles along coast and 37 miles out to sea (that’s a lot of fishing boats and whales). The main attraction here is Cape Perpetual Scenic Area, which is administered by the forest service and includes 2700 acres of old growth spruce, fir, and wonderful hemlock. There is also a giant sitka which is 185 feet tall and 40 feet around at the base. Right along the shore are holes and cracks which at different tide heights fill with water and then appear to explode.
