Cape Flattery, Washington

Northwest corner of the USA

A must-see place!

Cape Flattery is one of the must-see places on the Olympic Peninsula in the State of Washington. This fabulous place is the most northwest location in mainland United States.

Cape Flattery is located within the Makah Indian Reservation. The Makah Tribe maintains this wonderful site. And what a fantastic job the Makah have done in their creation of a lovely trail leading to five observation decks.

On the day of our visit to Cape Flattery, the road to the Cape Flattery Trail was shrouded in mysterious clouds.

The trail to the Ocean descends down a path thru the lovely forest. This is a walk that filled us with anticipation of what we would see at the trail's end.

The path down to the Cape winds thru a tree shrouded forest with cedar plank bridges over the soggy places.

On arriving at the Ocean, there we found decks with marvelous views of this specatacular coast. A Makah guide was here to help us interpret what we were seeing. This guide greatly enhanced this visit with interesting information about the history of what we were viewing.
