“Spectacular Views and Easy Walk”

North Head Lighthouse

Reviewed 30 June 2014

This is a beautiful park and easy walk with wonderful views of the mouth of the Columbia River. If you are visiting any of the WA state parks, get the $35 pass rather than paying $10 per park for parking. Available at most grocery stores on the peninsula. This is not to miss.

Great for taking pictures. They do offer a tour of the lighthouse which is very inexpensive. Weather was great while we were there. Will have to pay for parking but can use it in all the other parts of the state park.

The short walk from the parking lot to the north head lighthouse is rewarded by a grand view of the beach and ocean below the bluff.

I have been to every lighthouse in Oregon and Washington. This is one of my favorites. Love hiking to both this one and Cape Disappointment.

it was a wild and windy day and very exciting at North Head Light. Wow, what a view! Located on the Pacific very near the mouth of the Columbia River, it is a very dramatic location. Got great photos and enjoyed the drama of the weather while there!
