Cape Flattery Fever

1.5 Miles Total - 200 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Originally added by Connor Smith

The Washington Coast is uniquely rugged. Cape Flattery epitomizes this fact.

Starting from the trailhead, the trail quickly descends down a wide gravel path. After about a quarter of a mile, you'll start to feel the ocean is close. Keep wandering through the woods on the board walks and emerge to see the wide open pacific. There is the clear main trail, but there are several little side trails that offer unique views of various coves. Definitely a photography dream out there. Be careful on the rocks if you venture out there as they will be slippery even when dry. There's no bathroom out there but there are several great spots for a picnic if the weather is nice. Cheers.

Spectacular Destination

One of my favorite places in the state! Have enjoyed many trips out here over the years. Highly recommend seeing this area from the water via boat or sea kayak if you can. So many untouched areas and so much wildlife to see.
