"Cape Disappointment Light" Ilwaco Things to Do Tip by Toughluck
Ilwaco Things to Do: 4 reviews and 8 photos
It has been a long day and when we arrived at the parking area for the Cape Disappointment Light, we found it was a mile plus (1.6+ k) up a gently rising slope, through a thick pine forest. It would have been a wonderful walk, but we just weren't up to the walk. Instead, we headed to the visitor center (Lewis and Clark). They use the same parking lot. And what do you know, there from the patio of the visitor center, overlooking the Pacific Ocean, we noticed the lighthouse standing on the next bluff. What a wonderful surprise. Of course, we'd have to walk the trail to get up close, but it's a beautiful sight, standing high above the ocean, marking the northern point of the Columbia River mouth.
