Hiked the Cape Flattery Trail near Neah Bay. Well maintained, fairly steep, rewarded with Pacific Ocean views and rocky cliffs.. Also stopped for a cappuccino milkshake at the local coffee truck, which was excellent!

Beautiful drive through this area, and lots of hikes and views along the way. You are supposed to pay a $10 annual use fee to visit the surrounding areas and parks on the reservation. It is a little confusing where to purchase these - the museum has these (fee to enter museum), a market in town, and a campground. Be... More

The city looks a little rough as you drive through it and I passed on stopping to get something to eat but this land is beautiful.

We've been to the Makah Indian Reservation for two vacations, and we really love it there. The reservation itself may appear run down and questionable, but you have never met nicer people, and the reservation really has a lot to offer- beautiful scenery, great beaches, rich history (the museum is a must), charter fishing, resorts, and a few really great...

A very nice drive to this place, the museum is a must see. realize it is a leisurely drive as the road hugs the coast and winds its way around outcroppings.

This museum has tons of information about the Makah. It is well done and complete. The views from the cliffs are amazing and well worth the hike out to the point.

Hey - if you are heading west you need to visit Makah Reservation and hike to Cape Flattery. The cliff views will take your breath away! Hikes includes walking on long boardwalks. Remember to stop at Makah Indian Museum on the way in to purchase a park pass. These fees are critical to help maintain these beautiful parks for us... More

Neah Bay is the end of the road in these parts. There is a grocery store, restaurant and museum featuring the artifacts from the Ozette Dig. You can get your $10 parking pass almost everywhere. It is all about the beach and fishing out here. Bring your raingear, the mist can roll in at any time.

Located in Neah Bayat at the north west corner of the Olympic Peninsula in Washington, the Makah Indian museum is superb! Hard to believe it is a private native American museum. About an hour and a half of somewhat boring drive from Port Angelsalong the northern coast is worth the trouble. There are several decent restaurants and one hutmaking and... More

The Makah Museum, featuring an in-depth examination of traditional culture is a must-see for those visiting the Olympic Peninsula. It offers a vivid picture of pre-settler life in this part of the world.
