"Walking through the forest on the west coast will always be a treat to me"
Today I'm looking back on a 2009 trip to the northwest tip of the contiguous US. Two of my best friends and I were on one of our cross-country road trips and decided we needed to see Cape Flattery - if for no other reason than to say we went to one of the most northwest tips of the US. The forest was lovely, as forests are, but I can still remember being amazed by the turquoise water crashing on the rocks below more than anything else. I've attached a few photos of the trail and the views.
To park in the lot with the trailhead, you need to obtain a permit from the Makah Reservation. I've included a link to get more information about where to find that pass and a little background on the Makah Tribe.
