Travel Information

Travel from the Seattle area means that you need to get to the Olympic Peninsula either by ferry or driving south to Tacoma, crossing the puget sound, and then driving back up north. The road is often just two lanes and has a number of steep twists and turns, so you'll have to be patient.

When you arrive in Neah Bay, you need to buy an annual $10 pass that gives you access to a number of different natural areas on the tribal land, this happens to be one of them. I purchased mine at the Makah Museum.

The hike from the parking lot to the location itself is fairly simple, and can be done by just about everyone. However, know that you will be walking over heavily rooted paths, that can cause problems for people with balancing issues. As long as you take it slow and easy, you should be fine.

The Makah have installed a number of elevated boardwalks, saving your shoes and boots from some mud, dirt, etc.

Google Maps will tell you it takes 4 hours from the Seattle area, and they're right on the nose with this estimate. After you leave Port Angeles using SR112, you'll be driving along a two lane, twisting, winding road where there are a number of locations where washouts can occur in bad weather.
