Cape Perpetua Scenic Overlook

The added benefit to friends visiting is you get to renew your amateur Interpretive license.

We took our friends to the highest point on the Oregon Coast – Cape Perpetua Scenic Overlook.

Cape Perpetua Scenic Area
Beautiful sky accentuates the overlook

Even if you can’t walk very far there’s a beautiful area to see from a bench; just 30 feet from the parking lot.  Parking requires a fee or day use pass.  Seniors can use your America the Beautiful or Golden pass by displaying it on your dashboard.

The more mobile patrons reported stunning views around the corner at the old stone shelter.  But from here you can look straight down to the Devil’s Churn area.  Yes, that zig-zag trail is a steep one.  (If you can’t stand the height you get your interpretive guide to take a photo to look at from your couch afterwards.)  🙂

From here you can see the Visitor’s Center and Cook’s Chasm south of Devil’s Churn.
