Cape Disappointment State Park (formerly Fort Canby State Park) is a 1,882-acre camping park on the Long Beach Peninsula, fronted by the Pacific Ocean. The park offers two miles of ocean beach, two lighthouses, an interpretive center and hiking trails. Visitors enjoy beachcombing and exploring the area's rich natural and cultural history. The nearby coastal towns of Ilwaco and Long Beach feature special events and festivals spring through fall.

Be prepared for the smell in the summer but the views are spectacular and the interprative center is interesting

We are absolute beginners, both having lost a lot of weight and still working on upping our activity level. I don't know if I would rate this hike "easy" for middle-aged duffers like us, but it was easy enough. We didn't make it all the way to MacKenzie Head, but that was because of mud on the trail, not because it had gotten too tough for us. I would do it again. But bring bug repellent! The mosquitos were nasty.

Beautiful

Gorgeous view on sunny days :)

Beautiful lighthouse (in need of maintance) and interpretative center, highly recommended!

Hiked this trail many times. Not to long, but trail does climb towards end on paved road to lighthouse. On a clear day you can see Astoria. With field glasses you can see Seaside. Oldest Lighthouse in the state

Beautiful trail, not too many people and don't miss dead man's cove! it like a little piece of paradise. It's for everyone but little kids I would say.

Awesome ww1 & ww2 bunkers
