This is a sightseeing trial and the views make it worth the walk. It is a combination of gravel and rough cut lumber elevated walkways. There are several very short side trails to lookouts that provide vantage points to the Pacific coastline. From the final raised platform there is a view of the lighthouse, Straights of Juan De Fuca, the Pacific Ocean and Canada. Here you are at the northern most point of the continental US. This is a trial you will share with a lot of people don’t expect it to be deserted even as far out of the way as this trail is. You will need to buy an annual visitor pass from the Makah Nation to park in the lot at the beginning of the trail. The only facilities are pit toilets in the parking lot.
Not a long hike, but some amazing views, of the Pacific, and some great historical information along the way. Take an hour and check this out if your in the area.
