“Northwest most point on the contiguous United States.”
The short (¾ miles/1.2 km each way) trail leads through the forest to a viewing platform, perched on a cliff with a dramatic view overlooking the Pacific.
We went there just to say we hit the most North Western part of the states, we didn't know we were going to be rewarded with one of the most beautiful views we've ever seen. Unlike the other reviews, we got lucky with sunshine (sorry ;) - our photos from this location are definitely among our favorites.
I went on a foggy day im september but the hike was well worth it and so was the drive.
Totally worth the drive and recreation permit cost! A beautiful boardwalk leads you over soggy ground and slippery slopes to a few observation decks and a final viewpoint that rivals the best in the Pacific Northwest.
You have reached the end of the earth! Or, so it seems. There’s a ton of picturesque scenery and wildlife that greets you as soon as you get to the parking lot. The hike is short, easy, and well maintained. There’s only light traffic out here and it’s very peaceful.
You’ll need a park pass, but it’s very inexpensive, there’s only one road to get there and there’s a little diner on the way if you want to get some energy before taking the hike. The scenery from the turnouts isn’t the most impressive, but the views at the trail end are magnificent.
Amazing place. The Sequim address is interesting, since is is quite a drive from Sequim
Very curvy road. Well worth it. We were there on a foggy August day and it was simply amazing. There are a lot of cliffs, so keep an eye on the littles, also... the bathroom facility at the trailhead was GROSS, so go before you get there. Simply breathtaking though.
It was poring when I went there some days ago, but definitely worth the hike and wet clothes. The hike to the viewpoint was the most fun hike I've ever done and the view was just amazing!
Visited in 2014 at the end of March and was hit with monsoon style rain, but the trail was still in good condition, and the views were spectacular. This year I went in May hoping to have better weather and it was a bit of a mixed bag. One side of the Cape was hazy and fogged in and the other was clearer, still beautiful and worth the trip/ hike
This place is absolutely beautiful. When i went it was pouring rain but still worth it. The hike up is just as pretty as the views from the cape.
