This is a short year around hike that is both beautiful and historic. Cape Flattery is the farthest north west land point in the continental United States. Lighthouses on Tatoosh island and Cape Flattery Rock have long guided mariners to the entrance of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
Cape Flattery is a traditional hunting area for the Makah Indian tribe. The Makah's are historically whale and seal hunters.
The short walk from the parking lot to several well maintained lookout areas is enjoyable year around.
Take U.S. Highway 101 west from Port Angeles. Turn right onto U.S. Highway 112 approximately 2 miles west of Port Angeles and head towards Clallam Bay & Sekiu. Continue on U.S. Highway 112 until it ends at the border of the Makah Indian Reservation. Continue on the Cape Loop Rd/Koitlah Point Rd through Neah Bay and drive to the trailhead (approximately 5 miles).
