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!

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 .
