Right off HWY 101. Great trail to stretch the legs.

This is a very cool hike. I wouldn’t bring kids due to the unpredictable surf, but it is beautiful and good for all skill levels.

Short trail, if you do not go to rocks itself you can also do it with a stroller. For older kids it is nice to walk on the rocks. Around high tide make be very careful as waves can be really strong and high at this time. Nice views, also good for whale watching. You can combine the loop with a small beach or extend the hike in South direction (out&back).

Be sure to arrive about an hour before high tide to see all the action. If you walk onto the volcanic rock watch for waves that can unexpectedly take you by surprise.

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.
