A beautiful short somewhat boarded and stairs trail. All downhill in the beginning and then uphill to get back to the parking area. So many gorgeous views of the coastline and rocks. Even a docent there at a lookout point to give history information! Worth...More

The trail to the actual cape is only like 1.5mi......downhill. So on the way back up it is a little strenuous. My brother proposed to his girlfriend out there and it was very memorable.

the trail is pretty short, not difficult at all, but the views are just spectacular. So beautiful-- amazed this is not a national park actually visited in the summer several years ago but ran across this and remembered it

We read a leaflet that recommended not going if anyone had bad knees, etc. We ignored the info and did the walk anyway. There were roots and muddy areas (it hadn't been raining so I assume it could get really muddy with rain) but we...More

This short little path was rather popular with the tourists on the day that I visited. But the nice view at the end was worth putting up with the crowds.

Wanted to see Olympic Nat. PK., Mt St. Helens, & Mt Rainier. Figured I'd stop by Cape Flattery while I had the time. Been to Cadillac Mt in Maine, so that bracketed the lower 48. Drove from Port Angeles. A word from the wise--do not!...More

Easy hike to nice views of ocean, several inlets on shore that look like caves. Don't forget to buy your tribal permit for hiking. You can get one at the museum desk in Neah Bay, or at Hobuck Campground office--probably other places as well (only...More

Easy boardwalk hike down through the Douglas fir and salal that magically open to a wooden platform on a high cliff. The crashing waves over kelp beds into sea caves below. Wow. Well worth the very winding drive out to the end!

Yes, dogs are allowed if on leash. It is a nice trail, and I have seen many types of dogs on the trail. My dog had an easy time with the trail, even though he is really old. Have a great trip

Ditto on budzilla's advice. Sidenote try and check the ferry times and be prepared to wait for the next one it can get busy.
