Great overall hike from the visitor center to the lookout with great views along the switchbacks. Most of the hike is under the lush, coastal Oregon canopy which provides some cool protection. Although it is classified as moderate, with the proper shoes, water, and some “eager” energy, this trail can be accomplished by most.
It's a nice campground 🏕️ they have everything i think they will be good better or perfect if they had an electricity plug and a showering 🚿 and they fix the restroom because one of the women's and one of the man's are unavailable to used
We started beside the visitor center. You can also start from the campground or the Cape Perpectua Rd. I wouldn't say it's difficult because my robust 7 and 5yo did it with us. It was a lot of elevation in a short distance (2.2miles from the campground round trip, 2.7miles from visitor center). There were some rugged parts but it's worth it once you get to many different lookout points. It took us 1:45mins with snack breaks and view breaks. That also included a loop of the Whispering Spruce trail at the top. Mind you we jogged down the hill 😂 because our kids wanted to go home!
A Spectacular view of the ocean at 654 feet above Sea Level!
Overall good. Cons- $26/ night+ $7 per extra vehicle, no showers, not very many sites to choose from, no cell service, creek is very small, sites are small and VERY close together and some have no barrier between them. Pros- lots of good hiking trails, beach access, nice bathrooms, visitor center with ocean views and gift shop.
