So cool. A must see!

Hiking along Gwynn Creek, crossed 12 small creeks, some over bridges, others stepping on rocks. So one can call this portion "The trail of dozen creeklets." Four stars because of no scenic views.

Did the trail anti-clockwise so the climb to the ridge is much more gradual. This entire hike is through mostly old growth forest. Beautiful forest but no views at all. If you do the trail anti-clockwise, keep in mind that there are no benches or other options to sit down for a break until you get to the last section of the trail that is an interpretive loop.

Short steep hike through the forest with amazing views along the way and on top! Hehe, feels so much more rewarding walking up when you see the folks that came by car

There were barely any views of the coast. Beautiful trees and wildflowers. Too close to the 101.

Started at the public parking area near the post office in Yachats and followed the Pacific Coast Trail to the statue and back. Round trip was about 5 miles. First part of trail follows the coast line and then it follows 101, venturing across private property, so be careful to stay on the marked trail. The trail was easy to follow despite being a little overgrown in a few places and allowed for beautiful views of the ocean through the trees. Watch your step for snails and slugs and watch the trail for spider webs.

Amanda's grotto was partially blocked by a fallen tree but still easy to access. (Note that the statue is now on the Yachats side of the footbridge.)

Great photo ops on this hike.

This trail along with Whispering trail is a nice way to enjoy Cape Perpetua. Did not do the more difficult hike from the bottom at the visitor center to the top of the cape but Amanda Trail was still fun though I only did the first 2 miles from the top and then turned around and went back. This is a nice area with good views and nice trails. It is worth visiting once in your life though I like Cascade Head and it's views better. Will come back later this summer and try the ascent hike to the top and the other inner land trails.

Nice short trail lots of stairs we left from the visitors center and there was a tunnel under the highway almost all blackout very beautiful.

Did this loop today counter clockwise. Beautiful day high mid 60’s and clear. Wonderful trail through ferns and old growth Sitka Spruce. Not too steep and well maintained trail. Not sure why its rated hard except maybe the length. We had just over 7 miles total. We saw two other people , both within 1 mile of Visitor Center

The trail emptied onto the beach. Beautiful!

Great trail. Started in Yachats and headed up. Ended at the visitors center. A must run!

Easy hike worth the trip for the view.

Great hike and beautiful views.

Surprisingly vertical at times (although my wife and I had been told that it was pretty much flat) but very enjoyable. Despite the occasional incline, I’d consider jogging this trail on a day that isn’t too busy.

Best to go at lower tide! Maybe just the season, but there was no one there and we got an awesome show. Short hike, a little confusing but just head down at either point by the bridge (there are two parking lots along the hwy). Gotta get out over the rocks but be careful with the tide, some waves come in big.

Love this! Super easy and nice for all ages. Very pretty views!

I love this hike. Its really pretty for looking at the ocean. Only thing some may not like is tourist come here frequently.

Short and simple. Amazing view on sunny days.

Really pretty hike. Only thing is that I assumed itd be more flat since its so straight but it goes up and down quiet a bit. It doesn't make it difficult but some may find that useful knowing.

I do this trail when I want an easy walk with a pretty view.

I enjoy this going down the hill. Up hill can be kinda rough with how steep it is. Check the weather before going as mud can make it harder. I feel this trail is more uneven from rocks and roots on the ground. I dont find it an issue but some may.

This walk and beach is getting really crowded with tourists. Beautiful beach, but too many people if you’re looking for a peaceful nature walk. Please leave unfriendly dogs at home if they can’t get along with others.

this is a fun, really pretty trail. Several switch backs, not a whole lot of people the two times I've been out there. warblers in the summer!

this is a nice climb and short - combine it with the Amanda trail for a longer stretch and more elevation. I did that to condition for Yosemite.

Loved this trail. Started at the statue (got dropped off) and ended up at Cape Perpetua Campground, where we were camping. Lots of hills and passed through the Cape Perpetua lookout area before getting back to the campground. Loved this! My hiking partner said she once seen a herd of elk on this trail. Hiked this in September, mild somewhat wet day.
