Captain Cook Trail #1364.2

  

From forest to tidepools, and back again, this one-mile round trip hike starts at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center.

The paved trail leads you past an historic Civilian Conservation Corps Camp, through wind-scuplted vegetation, down to the tidepools.   It is a moderately difficult trail for people using wheelchairs.

During high tide, you can watch ocean spray bursting skyward from the collision of waves into the rocky shores of Cook's Chasm. 

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.
