Perched 800 feet above the Pacific Ocean, the Whispering SpruceTrail winds 750 feet to a historic rock viewing shelter built in 1934 by Civilian Conservation Corps. This trail provides exceptional views of the Oregon coastline and forest. The first view opportunity and bench is approximately 100 feet from the parking area, trail grade ranges from 0 to 8%. From the bench, the trail winds through forest with coastal overlooks, trail grades range from 8% to 12% for 300 feet, rest areas are provided every 50 feet. The trail then intersects with the return loop in a level resting area, and proceeds another 200 feet, with two more rest areas provided before the final 150 feet of trail to the historic rock viewing shelter. The final 150 feet of trail is easy, with an average grade of 2%. The 550 feet return loop from the shelter provides a view of Yachats, the northern coastline, and the forest vegetation atop the Cape. Trail grades are easy to moderate 0 to 8%.
