Wonderful hike

Gorgeous look out. Not very muddy in the winter, pretty steep but not too long and a good workout. Beautiful old growth trees.

Short little hike, more of a short walk, views from the cape out into the ocean prior to heading into forest with tons of trees.

Short(er) hike. Loved seeing people of all ages doing it! Slippery, obviously, so wear good shoes. Great views.

Great trail with a view.

I started at Neptune State Scenic Viewpoint. I found the forest around Gwynn Creek trail to be the best section.

quick trail from the top to the bottom. little bit of up and down at the start but overall gradual descent. Statue was cool! dropped me out by the welcome to yachats sign near the ocean cove bnb.

the views! worth the trip.

I start this loop from Hwy 101 at Neptune, which is a wonderful beach with sandstone cliffs and eroded basalt. . Terrific Sitka Spruce old growth forest flanks the hills along Gwynn creek. A brief switchback climbs to Cooks Ridge trail which eventually descends to Cape Perpetua Visitor center. Bald Eagles nest atop Cooks ridge, Kingfishers along Gwynn Creek. I have seen Chanterelles along this trail as early as mid July

We started at the top then worked down to the Amanda statue and back up, parking on the Cape Perpetua road.

I would say the way back from the statue is more Hard than Moderate. according to fit bit it was 50 flights in One mile. after that, mostly moderate.

Very light traffic and a nice secluded area though.

Great hike! The Trail has Switch backs on the way up and maintained well. Wasn't crowded for a Sunday afternoon. We went on a clear day which allowed us to see down the coast and catch some whale watching at the top. The view makes the hike extremely worth it! Not too challenging as an experienced hiker.

When you walk down the stairs, you have to walk near the «churn» not to see, but to hear the sounds of water in the churn.

We went the other way. Coast trail to Gwynn Creek to Cook's Ridge and Discovery loop back the three visitor center. This is a much more gradual 3.5 mile hike up to the highest point. It's a great trail and we only encountered 6-8 other groups on our Monday afternoon hike.

Check weather first.

Really rocky area of the Oregon coast, but lots to see and explore. Thor's Well was really cool. Will go again when the tide is higher. Great spot to stop and explore.

What a great view of Cape Perpetua! We saw two small whales off the cove spouting away. The kids really enjoyed it.
