Cape Cove Trail #1364.1


After coming through the tunnel under Highway 101 from the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center, turn right and go over the bridge into the parking lot.  Follow the roadside trail north. This trail will connect you with the Trail of the Restless Waters and Devil’s Churn. Always use caution on the beach. Watch for sneaker waves, know the tide schedule and stay away from logs in the surf or on wet sand. Look out for deep water and strong currents.
