Located two miles south of Yachats, the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area is a natural wonderland. The U.S. Forest Service maintains the Cape's 26 miles of interconnected hiking trails through coastal mature and old growth rain forest, to breathtaking vistas, Native American shell middens, marine gardens and the beach. The Forest Service at Cape Perpetua also offers guided walks and operates a Visitors Center with natural and cultural history exhibits, an interactive children's corner, and a theater with nature films.

Noted viewpoints within this 2,700 acre park include Devil's Churn, Cook's Chasm, Spouting Horn and Cape Perpetua Overlook, the highest point on the Oregon Coast that may be reached by car.

The viewpoints and trails are open to the public year round. Some of the trails are wheelchair accessible, one 6-mile loop is open for mountain biking, and all provide opportunities for birding.
