The west shelter at Cape Perpetua and the surrounding section of the Whispering Spruce Trail has reopened following restoration work completed by HistoriCorps in partnership with the Siuslaw National Forest. HistoriCorps was able to successfully preserve this picturesque stone shelter, rebuilding the roof system to its original 1934 specification and re-roofing the building using cedar shakes.

Due to a planned power outage to complete powerline work in the area, on Oct. 10 the Cape Perpetua Visitor Center will close at noon for the day. The visitor center will reopen the following morning, Friday, Oct. 11 at 10 a.m. While the visitor center is closed, the surrounding area viewpoints and trails will remain open as usual, from dawn to dusk.
