Create an itinerary including Cape Flattery
Cape Flattery (48°23′09″N 124°43′37″W) is the northwesternmost point of the contiguous United States. It is in Clallam County, Washington on the Olympic Peninsula, where the Strait of Juan de Fuca joins the Pacific Ocean. It is also part of the Makah Reservation, and is the northern boundary of the Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary. Cape Flattery can be reached from a short hike, most of which is boardwalked. The westernmost point in the contiguous United States is at Cape Alava, south of Cape Flattery in Olympic National Park. However, the westernmost tip of Cape Flattery is almost exactly as far west as Cape Alava, the difference being approximately 5 seconds of longitude, about 360 feet (110 m), at high tide and somewhat more at low tide.
The Cape Flattery Lighthouse is on Tatoosh Island, just off the cape. Makah Bay and Neah Bay are on either side of the cape. Neah Bay, Washington is the closest town to the cape.

  • The trail to Cape Flattery is an easy hike. The path is clearly marked and well cared for. The view of the cape is exquisite. Such beauty and awe in one place! Don't miss it!

  • The drive to Flattery is not a boring one, with its twisting roads and spotty cellular coverage. Fortunately, there are not a lot of wrong turns to be made, so the parking will be in view in quick...
