Gorgeous walk through forest to several overlooks of the western most point of the Lower 48, beautiful coast, trees ,rocks, and crashing waves. Interesting Makah gentleman happy to tell you about the place and his tribe stationed at one of the overlooks

There's so many spectacular hikes in Washington state it's hard to stand out. This one is on the shorter side and much of the hike is on boardwalks. Very much worth it to see the most North Western point of the continental US!

Beautiful view! The trail is in good condition considering the location. It was a sunny, dry day when we were there. Absolutely beautiful. The trail in many places consists of planks to walk on; so it won't be muddy on a rainy day. Depending on the weather conditions, I suppose it could be a little slick if it were wet;... More

Hiked with husband and 14 year old daughter. This was an easy, well defined trail to an awe inspiring scenic spot - the northwestern most corner of the contiguous US. The shore line is carved by the sea into fabulous grottos, islands and sea stack rock formations. There were many board walk and other man-made assists on the trail. I... More

The Cape Flattery trail takes you to breathtaking sights, but the trail is steep and muddy and all downhill in and up hill out. Good shoes are highly recommended.

Very nice easy hike, we were lucky as the fog cleared to a beautiful sunny day just as we arrived. We were amazed to see a young gray whale in the water right below the lookout only a hundred yards off shore. An otter also made an appearance, a wonderful day all around.

An easy hike down and simply keeps getting more breath taking with each step until you reach the final overlook. Up hill on the way back to the trail head but easy enough for the whole family.

The position of the Cape on the map looked very appealing, so - after the long drive to Neah Bay - I was hoping this was worth the effort. And indeed it was. The trail is very short - I wouldn't even call it "a walk" - but the views at the end are indeed breathtaking. The cape was cloudy... More

Cape Flattery Trail is an easy walk for all ages on a well placed path. As you near the most Northwest point of the U.S. you will see Mother Nature's miracles. The rock formations, caves, blow holes and crashing waters are beyond words. You become one with all that is surrounding you. Spiritually invigorating, the cleanest air I have smelled... More

We walked this short trail in light rain so it was slippery and the view at the end shrouded in mist, (much like a Japanese painting). Downhill was challenging since the surface is rough, but uphill much easier.
