The Amanda Trail is a 5.8 mile (9.3 km) historic out-and-back hike that begins at the Cape Perpetua Day Use area on the Oregon Coast. The moderate trail features a statue along the path and is dedicated in memory of Amanda, a blind woman of the Coos Tribe who was, along with other First Nations people, was forced to make a long journey from their homes to a new government camp in the late 1800s. The trail runs through the former Coast Indian Reservation which was established in 1855 with the Coastal Tribes of Oregon.

Beginning by descending through lush coastal woodlands the trail then leads to a grotto featuring the concrete statue of Amanda. From the statue, the trail continues through the forest leading toward the town of Yachats. The trail was created in recognition of the tragic events that occurred to the native tribes of Oregon.
