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.

After the long drive down FR 26, turn onto FR 2680. 6 miles down the road, you'll see what slightly resembles a trail to your left.

You can stat this adventure at one of two trailheads. I suggest using the lower of the two. The start of the trail ascends through a forest of old growth pines with periodic views of Mt Washington.
