Cape Flattery Tribal Byway

Located entirely within the traditional home of the Makah Tribal Nation, the Cape Flattery Tribal Scenic Byway is the first tribal road in the nation to be awarded scenic status. This is the only road leading to the northwestern-most tip of the contiguous United States.

At just 12 miles in length, this is the shortest scenic byway in Washington, but it is long on scenery and culture and not to be missed if you’re traveling the north Olympic Peninsula.

Key points of interest:

  • Makah Cultural and Research Center to learn about the people and cultures of the Makah Tribe.
  • Cape Flattery Trail is an easy .75 mile trail that includes a series of boardwalks through the rainforest that overlooks the stunning Pacific Ocean and the nearby sea stacks and coves. Tatoosh Island Lighthouse can be seen in the distance from the Cape Flattery Trail.
