The Amanda Statue (above left) is located about halfway into the Amanda Trail, which crosses 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. Other trails start at Cape Perpetua. The giant spruce (above right) is east of the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center.
