Explore Cape Dissapointment's North Head Lighthouse
Washington › North Head Lighthouse
Added by Jameson Jones
A historic lighthouse in Cape Disappointment State Park with expanding ocean views.
From the North Head parking lot located at the end of N Head Lighthouse Rd, make your way to the lighthouse by following the lighthouse signs at the parking lot. There's a path to the right that you can take that will take you to a view point (the walk to this viewpoint is short and easy). The path to the left will take you on longer hikes to more locations in Cape Disappointment.
What's great about this lighthouse is its easy accessibility and the expanded ocean views. This is also a great place to learn a little lighthouse history while taking in some great views.

The people at the Lewis and Clark interpretive center near the lighthouse are so enthusiastic that even if you went for the natural beauty you'll come home with a desire to read Ambrose's Undaunted Courage (or better yet, read it before you go). One of the best history parks in the country in one of the most beautiful places.

Start off on the extremely rough Forest Service 9070 road. Follow this for just over 4 miles until you see a sign for trail #1348 on the right.
Hike to Elk Pass via "the Knife"
Washington / Snowgrass Flat Trailhead
This is a rather long out and back, however, it can also be done as a backpack, which would give you more time to explore the Goat Rocks Wilderness, which is highlighted in other Adventures.
