This is a very short yet beautiful out and back hike which can be easily accessed at the Cape Perpetua Visitors Center. This trail directly connects to the Captain Cook Trail (.6 mile) and Restless Waters Trail (.4 mile) if you wish to extend your hike.

Nice easy trail with moderate grades. Went with someone who had mild walking problems and they made out just fine. Great view of the ocean from up close. It was moderately crowded.

Pretty trail that loops from the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center over to the Devils Churn and back. Great views of the beach and ocean.
