This is another of the capes named by Captain Cook. This area is full of explosive waterworks at high tide. So, get your tide charts out, and remember that powerful water on the Oregon Coast can be dangerous. Observe from a distance

Thor's well is right there. Then go to the visitor center and get directions to the top!! The most stunning views. And you must do the short walk if you are able. This walk takes you to the Conservation Corps Shelter.

It’s always fun to take a hike in Cape Perpetua, even in the mist. And the people in the Visitor Center are most friendly and helpful. Especially neat is to watch the Spouting Horn.

You probably be fine after labor day weekend. You should have no problems and fires should not be in your way, as most of the fires are from July to August. I hope I was of help. Rob Chaffart
