A beautiful peninsula into the Pacific Ocean with plenty of views There isn't much elevation change in this peninsula walk, just great views! You'll be hiking along cliffs 400 feet above the water below. If you are lucky and its not raining you'll be rewarded with amazing views.

Foggy and wet for an August day. But still a beautiful trail.

There are 3 trails at Cape Lookout trailhead. We took the very beautiful Cape Trail, which even on an August Sunday at 11a, wasn't overly crowded. It's an easy out and back with little elevation gain. The forest is gorgeous and was actually pretty fogged in, which only made it more beautiful and kept us cool too! A few muddy spots, and there are wood walkways over the worst parts which are charming and helpful.

Fun short trail to an amazing lookout (hehe) over the ocean and coast line! Very cool vegetation and the chance to see different creature's depending on the season.

Great trail today, a couple muddy sections but not bad at all. Great views although it was a bit hazy so couldn't clearly see Cape Kiwanda to the south. Get there early, before 10 AM to avoid lots of fellow hikers.

A little muddy and slick in a few spots, but the views were well worth the trip to Cape Lookout! Incredible scenery of the forest and the ocean. Easy hike with lots of shade.
