About this spot
A 0.75 mile trail heads west through the forest to the most northwesterly point of the 48 contiguous states. The trail ends with three separate viewing platforms overlooking the ocean. These are placed for your safety. The land along the cliff edge is often overhung and could crumble any time. The final platform has a view over the Pacific Ocean to Tatoosh Island and the Cape Flattery lighthouse. Birds, such as puffins, guillemots and murres can be seen in the waters below or nesting on the cliffs. Gray whales and sea lions are often spotted from the platforms.
