WalkingGreat!

The trail to interpretive center is short and sweet. There other trails near by other then the trail to the light house you can take just be careful as there are no maps.

Trail to lighthouse is closed. Only access is to the interpretive center which does provide a nice view of the lighthouse. Walk to to interpretive center is paved and very easy.

HikingFeeGreat!

This trail went up and around the Interpretive Center, which was closed, and gives you a glimpse into some old bunkers and you can get some great pictures with the lighthouse and the Pacific in your shot. I went on a sunny day with my dog. It was extremely beautiful day and being Saturday afternoon it was plenty busy.

It was beautiful but currently blocked off by coast guard barriers. Had to settle for the view from the Lewis and Clark center, which was beautiful

Easy and good with young kiddos. You get to explore the fort, see some great views and walk next to the interpretive center. Easy and enjoyable. More of a history walk than a hike but fun all the same.

*Discover Pass required* Short looping trail around the old fort and interpretive center. The fort has history boards posted inside. Great views from the edge of the walkway in-front of the interpretive center.

nice short hike but the $10 fee to do it kind of negative the hike. Beautiful view of the inlet of the Pacific Ocean. I enjoyed the stop at the station.

First to Review

This trail was easy and had plenty of views of the beaches down below, as well as of the light house. Along the way there was a volunteer who was very helpful in explaining where everything was in the area and pointing me in the right direction of where I wanted to go. Once at the interpretive center, it was cheap to get in and full of interesting exhibits. I would highly recommend this hiking trail for anyone.
