This is an amazing hike that takes you to a historic lighthouse. Even though you'll have to ascend a couple hundred of feet to get to the lighthouse the views south down the coast from it are well worth it.

Gorgeous vistas. Historical informational placards. Path is wide, gravel, and uphill but quite easy. It is a State Park, so there is a parking fee or use State Park Pass.

great views of something awesome PNW coast!

While visiting the lighthouse, we were told about this trail behind the lighthouse. Short, steep trail, but it will give you amazing views of the lighthouse. Definitely a must.

So beautiful!! 5$ to park-on the weekends it's quite busy. The beach is secluded and there are great views as you trek up to the lighthouse!

it is an easy incline to the top the views are with it 1/2 Mile up. took both small dogs. Too many dogs on the trail. one had to be in heat it made my male super crazy. I'd leave them at home next time as it will be nice not to be tugged all the time. Nice beach and picnic area. A do over 4 sure.
