The Yachats area is known for its numerous scenic hiking trails. One of them, the Amanda Trail, starts at the base of our driveway and goes south to a grotto that honors a Native American woman, Amanda. It continues to Cape Perpetua. A trail going north from our driveway takes walkers into town and connects to the 804 trail on the ocean side and on to the Oregon Coast Trail. Trails vary in difficulty; we have walking sticks for those who like a little more stability.

The Amanda Statue (right) is located about halfway into the Amanda Trail, which begins at the base of our driveway and reaches the site of the Amanda statue. It honors a blind Native American woman forced to walk barefoot on the rocky beach from her home to the Coast sub-reservation located where the Adobe Resort is now. The trail continues on to Cape Perpetua.
Cape Perpetua offers regular tours and special events. Call Visitor Center to confirm times: 541-547-3289.
