A short but beautiful walk through a forest to a cliffside overlook of Cape Perpetua below. This is a short hike through the woods to a stone structure with amazing views of Cape Perpetua below. There are two main viewpoints from the cliffs and a pretty cool grove of trees to walk through. You'll be able to see Haceta Head Lighthouse from the top as well on a clear day. You'll also pass by a massive spruce tree!

this is a great trail in the woods. There are not a ton of ocean views but the forest is beautiful. Lots of roots so careful you don't trip

Wonderful and beautiful trail! I would not recommend trying this trail during a storm, though. Went up there during gale-force winds, and a fairly strong gust sucked me back into the ruins and smacked me around a bit. In just about any other weather condition it is a great easy trail with a wonderful view, and a cool structure to check out!

Nice trail. Well marked. We started at the very scenic Cape Perpetua Lookout. Hike 0.2 miles for a beautiful overview of Cape Perpetua. From there, we followed Amanda's Trail. We just wanted some exercise so we weren't expecting other scenic viewpoints but was one other small one, otherwise it was a nice walk in the woods. Trail is moderate due to trail goes up & down. We went just 1.3 miles out and back.

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

Nice hike. Super short . Really pretty view . But if your looking for a longer hike just walk past the ruins and there is a connection to the Amanda Trail .
