TILLAMOOK, Ore. – The Cape Trail parking lot at Cape Lookout State Park will be closed April 9 – 12 for repairs and repaving. Cape Trail, a 2.3 mile hike along the cape to a scenic viewpoint, will remain open for the duration of the lot closure.
“Cape Trail is a popular hike and the lot has seen a lot of use over the years,” said Kirk Barham, park manager. “The repairs and repaving will ensure visitors have better access to the trail moving forward.”
Two ways to access Cape Trail during the closure:
Park in the day-use parking lot near the park’s campground, and hike the 2.3 mile North Trail south to where it connects with Cape Trail. A $5 day-use parking fee applies.
Park along the shoulder of Cape Lookout Road, near the Cape Trail trailhead. Parking is limited.
