Cape Disappointment State Park - North Head

Cape Disappointment State Park - North Head Professional Review and Guide

"Hike along a rugged headland through a salt-sprayed maritime forest to Cape Disappointment’s dramatic North Head Lighthouse. From the high headland and its 1898 lighthouse, take in breathtaking views that include thundering waves, windswept dunes, and scores of shorebirds skimming the crashing Pacific surf.

There are over 8 miles of hiking trails in 1882-acre Cape Disappointment State Park. Once the location of Fort Canby, a military reservation established in 1852 (before Washington statehood), the state park was created in the 1950s."
