Cape Flattery Tribal Byway
The Cape Flattery Tribal Scenic Byway is the first tribal road in the nation to be awarded scenic status. And this is the only road leading to the extreme northwest corner of the lower 48 United States.
At 12 miles, this is the shortest scenic byway in Washington, but it’s long on scenery and culture and not to be missed if you’re traveling the north Olympic Peninsula.
