Point of Interest
“Technically this water/rock formation is located in a National forest but it's on the coast 101 highway between Newport and Florence. Go at high tide. It's incredible to see in person. A little over 3 hour drive time from Portland. Worth it.”

Park
“Directions from Ocean Haven: Turn left out of the Ocean Haven driveway. ​Drive 5.2 miles north on US 101 to the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center. After coming through the tunnel under Highway 101 from the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, turn right and go over the bridge into the parking lot. Follow the roadside trail north. This trail will connect you with the Trail of the Restless Waters and Devil’s Churn. Access to spectacular tide pools. Look for minus tides for best viewing. Never turn your back to the ocean!”

Scenic Lookout
“About 7 miles South of town you can enter Cape Perpetua. Park your car and take a short walk to the famous Rock Shelter (built by in 1933 by the Civilian Conservation Corps). The shelter was used as a lookout station during WWII. ”

Scenic Lookout
“Located 6 miles South of "A Stone's Throw". The sign from 101 reads "Cooks Chasm". During low-tide the well, is quite modest. The memorizing photos you see are at high tide which can be EXTREMELY dangerous. Grab your zoom lens and please keep your distance. It is not worth it! ”
