Short drive from Neah Bay and very easy trail that is well maintained down to the point. The views are spectacular and include the Pacific, the mouth of the strait, and Cape Flattery lighthouse. The rain forest is beautiful as well. Highly recommended and worth the trip.

The trail is well maintained and traverses some interesting habitat along the way to the views of the cape. Board walks take you over the worst of the wet sections, and there are benches for resting during the climb back to the parking lot. The scenery is tremendous!

This was an incredible hike to a beautiful view of the ocean. The trail is unique with its wooden boards and tree rounds used for parts of the trail. The view at the end of the trail is incredible and there are several great places to look out along the way. This place is worth coming to.

We drove up expecting to see some amazing views of the Washington coast line, which we had read about through various sources. Unfortunately, much of the coast was obscured by housing developments,

This is about a one mile trek down a marvelously constructed trail. Once you reach the end, you will be in a place you have probably never imagined. The place where natives watched for sea life and European traders. A place where there are vast arrays of sea birds, sea mammals, and crashing waves. Many come here, look for a... More

The trail is a great length not too long or too short. There are many different stopping point along the way for a break or a new view. The end point is like looking at the ocean for the first time, it is unlike any other ocean view you will ever see.

We are from Florida and visited this trail in late November, on a cold and sunny day. This hike was the highlight of our 10-day trip through Idaho and Washington. Not only is it quite special to think that you are hiking out to the northwest tip of the continental US, but the trail also has a sacred feeling, perhaps... More

Trail was even shorter than I expected, we did it the afternoon after we did Shi Shi beach. Just missed whales swimming right in front of the lookout. Also love windy roads so enjoyed the drive out there with some great views.

For a short hike that provides more bang than you can handle... But during the busy season I would avoid the trail. A lovely boadwalk takes you thru portions of the trail but it is only wide enough for 1 person so when groups meet of dogs, kids, etc. It is a bit cramped.

I've stood on the most westerly point of contiguous USA!! Its a long drive along a very scenic route across the top of the Olympic Peninsula but so worth it. Make sure you get a good sunny day. And, buy a parking pass in Neah Bay (Museum or General Store) before you head out to the trail head. It's a... More
