Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, Special Programs, Scenic Trails & Guided Hikes
The Cape Perpetua Visitor Center offers a viewing room and deck, natural and cultural history exhibits, a theater with nature films; summer time weekend Ranger Programs and Guided Walks, and Monday Walks with a Ranger; a Saturday Speakers Series in winter, and other seasonal programs such as spring and winter Whale Watch weeks.
The U.S. Forest Service maintains the Cape’s 26 miles of interconnected hiking trails through coastal mature and old growth rainforest, to breathtaking vistas, tidepools, and the beach. Trails range in length from a fraction of a mile to 10 miles, and from easy to difficult. The scenic area’s viewpoints and trails are open to the public year round. Some of the trails are wheelchair accessible, and one 6-mile loop trail is open for mountain biking.
