I have been wanting to visit Cape Flattery since I moved to Seattle. It was totally worth the wait and it now my favorite place so far in Washington. Stunning views and beautiful scenery through the entire area. Make the trip and the hike. The hike itself is very easy - lots of boardwalks so be careful with little kids.... More

The trail was pretty well maintained - there was a minimum amount of walking in mud. The payoff at the end, islands, a cave in the bay, and the lighthouse far off in the distance, was amazing. Definitely worth it!

My wife and I visited with her parents today. Gorgeous view accessed by trail that drops about 250 feet from trail head to view point. The others went on to the end and got great pictures and loved it. I had to stop about half way down as my bad knees were showing signs of giving out. The hand out... More

If you are up in the Olympic National Park area it is well worth the effort to take the ride up to Neah Bay and Cape Flattery. After a bit of winding road from Neah Bay and maybe a visit to the Makah tribe's cultural center and museum you have only a short walk out to some great views of... More

AWESOME POSSUM Back in the 80’s I wandered out to this point completely not knowing where I was. I am the curious one and found a back road that went into and past at that time the city dump. I continued and found an outlet road now the main road to this point, back then a pot hole dirt road... More

My husband and I recently eloped to Cape Flattery (with prior permission from the Makah Tribe). We initially visited in August to view it as a potential spot for our ceremony - sunshine, strong winds, and relatively dry path. It was stunning! You really feel like you are on the edge of the world as you stand on one of... More

The hike out to the point is not very far but the footing can be uneven. However, any effort is well worth it -- the view is spectacular. The guide on the platform (from the Makah tribe) was so knowledgeable and informative that it added so much to the experience. Be sure to bring binoculars. Spend as much time there... More

I used to hike a lot before I tore my tendon. After almost a year of physical therapy and barely being able to walk a mile, my friend found the perfect hike to get me going again. It is a 4 1/2 hour drive from Seattle but well worth it. I still walk with a wrap on my foot and... More

If you can show up on clear day this is a thrilling experience. The trail has a lot of uneven footing so be cautious for anyone that would have difficulty with exposed roots, muddy trails and rather slippery wooden walkways. It is all worth it when you reach the western most point of the USA. Wow, what a beautiful spot.

The view from the cliff was just beautiful and we saw whales and sea lions. Make sure to wear walking shoes. It can be muddy.
