Explore Cape Flattery and Hobuck Beach

Details

Added by John Sunich

Scenic ocean views. Easy hike for the whole family. Many photographic opportunities. Wildlife viewing. Nearby ocean beaches.

Cape Flattery, the most northwesterly point of the lower contiguous 48 states is accessed via an easy trail which includes many board walks and sets of stairs. Maintained by the Makah Tribe of Indains, the trail provides spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean, Tatoosh Island, nearby rocky cliffs, kelp forests, and the opportunity to spot whales, stellar sea lions, and a multitude of sea birds.

The area is known for being rainy and gray, but depending on the weather and the time of day the views can take on many different looks. During the summer months in the afternoon frequently the fog and marine layer of clouds will burn off and provide great views and photographic opportunities.

Additionally while in the area, just a short drive south of Cape Flattery you can explore the scenic Hobuck Beach which also has a small resort and campground. The ocean beach is very popular for surfers who want a secluded area to catch some waves. Both Cape Flattery and Hobuck beach lie on the Makah Reservation so be sure to stop into one of the many shops in Neah Bay and purchase the required recreation pass before visiting either of these sites.
