This place is hell-&-gone from pretty much everything, and the payoff, while nice, probably isn't worth the drive in itself. If you have nothing better to do on a nice weekend and a full tank of gas to blow on whatever, or you have other things to do out there, it's absolutely worth a look, but to drive there just... More

You got see this small park and hike at the edge of this great country. One mile of easy but rugged and rocky walk and you are at the northwestern edge of USA. Here please appreciate the work of the US park service, they maintain great parks from coast to coast, making sure the great American road trip endures, and... More

If you are visiting the Pacific Northwest and doing a drive around the Olympic Peninsula, this is a must see destination. It isn't really close to anything but is so well worth the trip out. The views are incredible. The hike/walk is easy with a small uphill just before you get back to the entrance. People of all ages and... More

I'm giving this a 4 because the photos my daughter took were gorgeous. However, I read several tour guide reviews saying the was not a difficult walk. It is steep and muddy, making it easy to slip. The boardwalks are only wide enough for one and there are tree roots which make tripping an issue. I went almost halfway, but... More

Read all the excellent reviews,,and that pretty much sums it up. Except the hike is easy and very doable (some reviews said the hike is step and uneven,,,it is not!!) Worth the drive. Hwy 112 is very scenic if you plan to take your time and stop a few times to visit the north coast line. Be sure to buy... More

This is a relatively short hike (~3/4 miles one way) to some spectacular views of Cape Flattery, Tatoosh Island, and Vancouver Island (weather permitting). The scenery is beautiful and the wave worn rocks and caves are impressive. There are lots of birds to see (Tatoosh Island is a bird sanctuary). We saw a seagull guarding her nest with two baby...

Previous reviews covered the basics quite well: distance, bathroom situation, fog/rain. Once in Neah Bay it's another seven mile drive to the Cape. We arrived on a very rainy/foggy day and wondered if we were on the right road...there seemed to be no one else going there. The small parking lot was full, and though raining heavily, we decided we... More

Cape Flattery is one of the most beautiful places I've seen! The hike is not easy. It is steep going down, with uneven wooden paths and root filled hilly slopes, and the walk up is steep, but the walk is worth the work without a doubt. It would be a tough walk for anyone with any physical limitations, including just... More

Amazing view and knowing that you are on the western most tip of the continental U.S. is pretty cool. We took our two dogs and walked the trail from the parking lot in about 10 minutes. Definitely worth the short hike. We ate at Linda's Woodfire Pizza on the way... best pizza ever.
