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.

My sister was on crutches and made it up just fine. The view is incredible. Worth it 100%.

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.
