Its cool for a quick sight seeing trip the hike is easy but you get to see the devils churn, Thor's Well, blow hole, and some tide pools along the way

Very easy hike- beautiful once you get down onto the rocks. Spouting horn, Thor's Well and the Tide pools were all so cool!

Hiked from the visitor vender trailhead. Trail was paved the entire way unless you want to go to Thor's Well and the tide pools. Lots of berries and flowers along the trail.

Going during high tide is a must! Thor's Well is just amazing! It is very rocky and getting a real close view is hard. I was being whipped around by the brisk ocean breezes and it was so misty. Bring a good strong tripod if you want to get a solid shot of Thor's Well. You can get a map of Cape Perpetua at the welcome center. Good idea to get one since no one I asked seemed to know where Thor's Well was on the other viewpoints. Didn't get to see the Horn spout :(

Make sure to go at high tide.

Great area for seeing the local aquatic wildlife, we found sea urchins, starfish, small fish, hermit crabs, other crabs, seals, and much more! As well there are great scenic views of crashing waves, the Spouting Horn, Thor's Well and easy connection to the Devil's Churn. Also, check the tides for the best times to look at all the waves on the coast.

Very short, but plenty to see. Tack this onto the end of one of the longer hikes available in the Perpetua area for a more diverse sight seeing experience.

Fun trail, short and for the most paved paved. The trail leads down to the ocean where you can see some amazing ocean features like the Sprouting Horn, and Thor's Well
