This trail with the board walks was truly beautiful. I leads out to the coast with amazing views. I was told that if you get there in the morning you may be able to see whales feeding. I could only do it in the afternoon, but it was well worth the hike. Don't miss this spot!!

Ok, I have to say I agree with a prior post, right out of Narnia. I photographed the board walks, tree root path and round tree burls all the way down. Plus there is a tree on the way back up that has tusks like an elephant out of it. The views and lighthouse was phenomenal. The hike out is... More

Make the time to hike the .7 mile trail to Cape Flattery on the Makah Indian Reservation. This is well worth the rather gnarly terrain and descent required to get to the end of the hike. The view is breathtaking and will be your reward. The rainforest you hike through is reminiscent of Narnia. You will be charmed. There were... More

The trail to the cape winds through a beautiful rain forest. The well-maintained path has boardwalks and is moderately strenuous in a few places. The end of the trail has a number of viewpoints on the sandstone cliffs overlooking the Pacific. Waves crash in on the rocks below and into the many caves. Take care to not leave these viewpoints...

After getting our $10 annual permit (and included map with directions) at the museum in town we made our way to the parking area at the trailhead. The road is quite twisty and the speed limit appropriately low, but no need to speed, most of the route has pleasant forested scenery. There are public toilets once you get there. The... More

I'm so glad we were able to find this gem. Easy hike, views of a lifetime. Be sure to use the restroom before your hike. Bathrooms at the trailhead are vomit inducing, but the trail itself makes up for it. Charming wooden pathways will lead you to views of your choosing.

There's something wonderful about being on the northwest edge of the contiguous United States. Between the turquoise color of the Pacific and the lush vegetation on the cliffs, this is a must see if you have time for the drive. Make sure to grab your camera AND some binoculars to capture not only the beauty, but the wildlife playing below... More

This was a great place to go and see. Amazing hiking trail down to the observation platforms. The views and this history of this area was amazing. But one should know that there is a pass required to park there and no way to get one at the trail head. Stop in town or risk a ticket. Once again another... More

This trail leads to beautiful views of where the Strait of Juan De Fuca meets the Pacific, and is the very northern most point in the continental USA. It leads downhill through rain forest habitat with benches and lookouts along the way. When we were there in the early morning, we were almost all alone. Later as we were coming... More
