We stopped by to watch Thor's Well during a high surf warning. This is a place not to be missed during heavy surf action as well as Cook's Chasm which is close and offers great photo ops.

Almost no signage to help you find this. Park at the Cook's Chasm pullout, and find signage there. It was a beautiful sunny day with almost no wind... I could've sat and watched the Well, and Spouting Horn all day long!

we had the calmest of seas so not much was going on at the well. It was a beautiful place nonetheless.

This is a great stop along HWY 101. Thors Well is a short walk from the parking lot. We went during low tide (high tide is recommended for full affect) but it was still cool. There is a little trail that leads to tide pools. Be aware that if you walk along the rocks and/or get close to the water, it is at your own risk- it can be dangerous.
I highly recommend getting their first thing in the morning before the crowds.

My husband and I visited Thor's Well on our trip exploring the west coast, and it ended up being one of our favorite stops. Thor's Well is such a unique and interesting natural feature!

On the path down, there are all sorts of signs warning about the dangers of the waves so, obviously, exercise caution if you proceed down. Once we got to the bottom, we had to traverse the rough rocks and the tidal pools to get to the well itself. We were both wearing waterproof hiking boots, which held out just fine against the water of the pools. The water was pretty rough as it crashed into the rocks and filled the tidal pools, so there was good reason for all of the warning signs. There were a few other visitors down there as well, including a couple with two dogs, which made us nervous for the dogs but they seemed to do ok.

We were able to stand on rocks that were adjacent to the rocks of the well itself and got a crazy cool view of the water rushing into and out of the well. If you decide to go down, you're going to get wet. The water jumps pretty high out of the well.

This ended up being one of the most unique and fascinating places we visited on the coast, so I definitely recommend checking it out if you're in the area!
