Seizing the First Day at North Head Lighthouse

Cristalyn Lighthouse Tour
April 17, 2015
Many thanks to Crindalyn, of Long Beach for sharing her photos and video of a spectacular First Day Hike and tour at Cape Disappointment State Park! North Head Lighthouse is currently closed for repairs. Look for the reopening of this amazing historic building coming this June!

I love the state parks right in my back yard!



The hike my 9-year-old son Kaeden and I went on was the First Day Hike (January 1, 2015) at the North Head Lighthouse in Cape Disappointment State Park on the Long Beach Peninsula. Not only do my son and I enjoy hiking, but this is in our “backyard” and a must-do hike that is very family friendly.

We were fortunate enough to take part in this hike, guided by Steve Wood, Interpretive Specialist. It was a tour of the historical North Head Lighthouse Keepers Loop Trail, including the lighthouse and the lightkeeper grounds/residents. After this part of the hike, the second hike took us along a new trail to the park’s Bell’s View. Couldn’t ask for a better day of weather on the coast considering it was January 1.


Enjoy Crindalyn’s video featuring some of the tour and great pictures from her family hike!
