Short but a good hike; attach cape cook, cape cod and all the surrounding coastal viewpoints. Amazing

Great trail. Started at devils churn and went all the way to Thor’s well. Nice and paved so our two year old could walk it.

Always a favorite. I only walk down to the lookout point at high tide, and if I have my three kids with me. (Ages 9,6,3) If it’s 30-45 min before low tide, I’ll take my kids down to see Devils churn a bit closer....however We visit the Oregon coast dozen of times throughout the year. So I feel they understand moms concerns & they heed my verbal warnings. So we make the walk around the gorgeous rock below. And connect back up at the wooden stairs. Up the stairs you have a two choices to make the trail up to the parking lot. Either way is fine. Go left, West, it will wind you up to the parking lot........Take the eastern way (right) and forks, right takes you towards the beach, left goes up to the parking lot. Please use extreme caution and have a common-sense when visiting the Oregon coast. It’s beautiful. It’s been awhile since we lost a father & son too a sneaker wave that ripped them off the rocks into the water. Enjoy your trip, just plan accordingly, stay safe

Great trail just off of the 101 HWY, Dog friendly and lightly trafficked.

Ran this as part of a bigger loop. (Started @ Cummins Creek - Cooks Ridge - Discovery Loop - Oregon Coast - back to Cummins Creek, GPS: 9.2mi) I really liked this section of the run. The Trail had a slight decline most of the way, soft footing, getting to run through the trees. Well maintained w/ some nice views. A nice end to a long run.

One of the most amazing places ever. The hike is relatively easy and give so much bang for your buck. Starting with Devil’s Churn to Cools Chasm, Thor’s Well, and the Spouting Horn. It’s true what they say about Oregon, it’s magic!

Just a great little trial with great views. Stop by. Eat lunch. Go for a walk. * Parking fee. * GPS works. * Vault toilets.

Great, easy, beautiful trail. The coastline here is magnificent. Loved seeing Devils Churn, Thor’s Well, Cooks Chasm, and the Spouting Horn all in one short hike. I’ve recently moved to the area and this will be my go to trail for visitors.

Absolutely loved this hike! Over all very moderate. Though you’re walking up an incline the entire way, it’s a steady and moderate incline that doesn’t leave you gasping for breath. Though there is some mud (January in OR) , it’s a moderate amount that doesn’t track back with you. The four mile loop makes you feel accomplished and just moderately tired by the end! As I said, very moderate and pleasant hike with a really, really lovely view. I was looking for a good winter hike with my dog, we drove 80 mins and we weren’t disappointed! Definitely wanting to do this again in warmer weather!

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

Rocks are slippery, watch for the high tides and be careful when going out to photograph Thor's Well. Otherwise, very pretty and it was astounding, watching the waves crash into the tide pools below.

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.

The trail is around 13 miles with an average of 5% elevation gain. The trail itself is in excellent condition with almost no exposed roots or rocks. It had not rained for a while and the condition of the trail was excellent. Hard to tell if it will get muddy with a little rain. I saw no one on the trail except a few hunters at either end. There are no viewpoints and expect to see trail, ferns, and trees. With a little bit of sunshine it is a very wonderful walk in the woods. I did find some cougar scat on the trail.

Really pretty! Really short. Bunch of different views all within the same spot

Good! Short and steep with a great view

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!

Beautiful trail, well-groomed, great for trail running. Agree that the trees never open up for a sweeping view, but the trail does have lush undergrowth and fungi to look at:) Rated as hard/difficult. I would rate as moderate only due to length. Ascent/descent is gradual and smooth. Met no one on trail on this gorgeous late October day.

Dog friendly. We took our dog down to the beach and it was just us so she was able to run in and out of the water!

This trail best serves as a connection to looped trails such as Cummins Creek.

Beautiful views. Very interesting and informative! Very short, but be careful stepping on the lava rocks.

Paved for most of the trail. Go at high tide and see Spouting Horn for sure!!

It’s a good trail for a challenge. Most of the trail is up hill (coming off Hwy 101). GPS says it’s just under 12mi. Good shade for a warmer day. I went in August, there were some soft spots on the trail so careful to look where your running (or walking) could break an ankle. Have also seen Hunters in this area. * No parking fee. * GPS works. * No toilets.
