Cape Flattery is the northwestern most point of the Continental U.S. – located on the edge of Neah Bay, Washington. It is a beautiful day-trip through the Makah Indian Reservation. The hike is easy, yet can be challenging during the rainy season – with most of the path underwater. I highly recommend hiking poles as there is a grade (and it helps if the trail is muddy too).

I do not recommend people with RVs (unhook!) to park in the lot designated for the Cape Flattery Trail. There is a RV turnaround, but it is very narrow and you would still have difficulty parking. If you visit this area, you will want to unhook in a campground.  Also make sure you visit the general store or Makah Museum before heading to the Cape to obtain a permit to park at the trail. Permits are around $10 for any day use areas inside Makah lands and good for the entire year. Oh… and did I mention a lighthouse? No? Well, guess you have to go and see it yourself! 😉
