Yachats, OR – Starting November 6th, the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday through Tuesday. All trails and viewpoints will remain open and accessible to the public for daytime use, even when the visitor center is closed.
Fall days are getting cooler, but those willing to brave potential rain will be rewarded with increased opportunities for solitude. Hikers are advised to check in with Visitor Center staff to learn up-to-date trail information and conditions. The Visitor Center is also a great location to warm up and escape inclement weather. Visitors can enjoy an educational film, exhibits, games, and magnificent views.
Mushrooms have been popping up along the Oregon Coast. In the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area, commercial picking is not allowed, but up to 1 gallon may be picked per person per day for personal use. Up to 6 of these mushrooms may be Matsutake, with the stem ends trimmed off.
A Day Use Pass is required for access to the Visitor Center, facilities and trail system. A One-Day Pass costs $5, but ask about our Five-Day and Annual Passes if you plan on staying longer or visit often. Overnight parking is not allowed at the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center or the Devil’s Churn parking lot.
