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.

Bring bug spray. The .61 mile hike in not difficult, although coming out worked up some heat. Many raised wooden walkways that were slick with the recent rains. Go careful. Map said we could follow cape loop road but soon learned it was a dead end. Come in via the Tribal Center near Hobuck. Just before the parking area the... More

I did this hike with my five year old cousin, aunt, and uncle. We enjoyed it very much. The way down to the viewing area is gorgeous! It was so green and relaxing. And the view is amazing!

Nice hike to the "edge of the continent." Easy 3/4 mile out to a series of viewing platforms. Views of Tatoosh if the weather is cooperating. Paulie, a naturalist from the tribe, was on duty when we were there. She was very informative.

The 3/4 mi hike out to the end of the cape is pretty tough. But, the sights are totally worth it. Sea caves, wildlife, and an awesome lighthouse across the water. Totally worth the sights.

Nice trail through a beautiful forest. Trail ends at some of the most dramatic and rugged coastline we have seen. Very enjoyable short hike. Look for gray whales. And other wildlife. We happened to be there on a nice sunny day but I would have enjoyed it in the rain as well. Definitely recommend. Also recommend picking up a disposable... More

If you tend to get car sick, this is not the trip for you. It seems to take forever to get there. Not sure it is worth the trip. Rialto/Ruby beach are just as spectacular. So, if you go to a beach, you can skip this.

I would love to go back to Cape Flattery trail. Even though the day was foggy, the views were amazing. I got great photos and the loved seeing the birds and sea lion. Definitely on my list of places to visit again.
