Cape Perpetua

Cape Perpertua lookout

Cape Perpetua is a popular visitor destination along the Oregon Coast.  Located 11 Miles south of Walport and 23 miles North of Florence.   The picture above was taken from the Cape Perpetua lookout at an elevation of 803 ft.   The building you see is the visitor center for the cape.   There are 10 trails in the cape area ranging from an easy 1 mile round trip to the tide pools to some long and difficult trails.  Only the more adventurous and equipped hikers should attempt any of the long or difficult trails.
