  • The Devil’s Churn sounds dramatic. The land and seascape of the Siuslaw National Forest is amazing. You will be compelled to pull over every chance you get to photograph the beauty of this place.  more »

  • Awesome view point. Nice park off of the 101. Great trail.
  • Says Willamette Weekly: "Yes, everything is named for the devil out here, whether Cauldron or Punchbowl or Basin or Churn. Everybody knows Devils Punchbowl—an impossible, hollowed waterfall basin that looks like it was designed by Alfonso Cuarón. But the Churn brings you closer to what death feels like from the inside. It's accessible only through an obscure turnoff at milepost 166.5 just south of Cape Perpetua, with a tiny parking lot home to a coffee window and the Restless Waters trailhead. "After about 100 feet, abandon the trail loop to take the first path to the right to switchback stairs leading down to a "lookout," which is a perch 6 feet above the sea—a craggy spur marred by a gash of angry ocean whose waves enter from the vastness to break and rebreak against sharp rock. The Churn is the ocean's mosh pit, the malevolence and beauty of nature made visible: It is the most Kardashian of beaches."
