Oregon Coast at Cape Perpetua
The Visitor Center Here gives an excellent introduction to the Oregon Coast with films and interpretive exhibits as well as guided hikes in the forest and tidepools. This is a wonderful area to get out of your car and explore on foot after getting an orientation at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center just up the hill off of highway 101 north of Florence, South of Yachats.
Devils Churn - one of my very favorite places on earth - is a short hike from Cape Perpetua or a brief stroll off the highway 101 turnout that is near Devil's Churn under a mile from the Cape Perpetua road up to the visitor center. Don't miss this spectacular feature where waves rush and crash into the narrowing chasm.
