The walk out through the reservation was scenic and peaceful. The walkway was a little uneven at places, but with a little care all was good. The scenery and views at the end of the walk was just unbelievable. So rugged yet serene.

This was a very nice reservation we visited when going to Cape Flattery. The folks we met were very friendly and helpful. The Makah heritage museum and Cape Flattery are absolute musts! It's worth the drive, I promise :)
