Scenic Drive
Carpeted with nearly 1,093 hectare (2,700 acres) of old-growth forests, Cape Perpetua Scenic Area offers a wealth of opportunities to explore a wild expanse of the famous Oregon Coast. Hike along more than 41 km (26 mi) of marked trails through the lush landscape, which features tide pools, water spouts, jagged cliffs, and a nearly 600-year-old Sitka spruce tree. Stop by the visitor center, open daily, where you can learn more about the nature and history of the region, and get a sweeping view of the Pacific and the surrounding mountains. You may even spot a whale if you're lucky. The coast has the potential for rain and cold weather year-round, so dress accordingly. Make Cape Perpetua Scenic Area a centerpiece of your Yachats vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Yachats tourist route planner.
