Fun hike with 4 teenagers taking the lead. Trail starts near visitor center. Parking permit was required and could be purchased for $5 for the day. Super cool tree at the end of the trail. Reminded us of what the tree might have been like in the book "My Side of the Mountain."

Really pretty hike. Only thing is that I assumed itd be more flat since its so straight but it goes up and down quiet a bit. It doesn't make it difficult but some may find that useful knowing.

Awesome hike! Totally worth it!

Easy lush walk that ends at a gorgeous 550 year old spruce.

A good solid walk with some great scenery. We saw a racer snake that caught and was eating a salamander on the trail. So cool!

Great short hike with variety in elevation. Some parts of the trail are narrow and have been damaged by slides and storms but still totally passable. Come back through the campground most of the way if you need a reprieve for kids or elderly.

Loved this trail. Beautiful scenery. Runs along a river. Tons of green and diversity of plants. A good part of the trail runs along the road and a campground, so you don't really feel you're away from civilization until you're a ways into the trail.

Cape Perpetua has some fun, short trails that have great views of the ocean. This one is no different. Great view of the Devils Churn.

Cape Perpetua has some great trails and the Giant Spruce is no different. Very pretty, and the tree at the end of the trail is huge.

I love the trail system at Cape Perpetua. The giant spruce trail was a perfect length for a day of exploring. A nice out and back trail through lush forest with an incredible old growth spruce at the end. Make sure to hike up to the cape and keep an eye out for whales. We come every spring and catch a few during their migration.
