Exploring the Cape Perpetua region's trails. This is a fun loop hike rich in natural history information of the Oregon Coast region. You'll pass through spruce forests with views towards the Pacific then ascend Gwynn Creek and return via Cook's Ridge. There will be a plenty of interpretive signs to read along the way.

Nice hike with forest and ocean views. Also not crowded once you get away from the visitors center.

This was an absolutely gorgeous hike! the trail was well marked with many signs along the way. the first half of the cooks ridge trail is quite a climb in elevation so be prepared to do some serious hiking! there is an amazing view at the halfway point and we sat down and ate lunch there. worth the climb!
