Cape Flattery, Neah Bay
The lookout at the end of Cape Flattery Trail is one of the best spots in the state for storm watching. As the northwestern-most point in the continental US, waves crash relentlessly, especially during big storms. The trail is only three quarters of a mile and an easy walk, with four viewpoints at the end. Dress appropriately, it’s cold and wet!
Cape Disappointment State Park
With two active lighthouses plus massive waves, this spot is ideal for photographers. With spray getting tossed up to 100 feet in the air, there’s plenty of action and visual excitement. Winds at North Head have been recorded up to 126 miles per hour! The state park has campsites and cabins plus an interpretive center for learning about the area’s history.
