Overview

These scored rocks, resplendent with whales, sailing ships, hunters, and priests were carved by ancestors of the Makah tribe. It's surmised that the Makah tribe used rocks and bone to create these beautiful features.

These extraordinary petroglyphs are culturally significant and very meaningful to the Makah tribe. Do NOT touch or manipulate these rocks in any way.

Some Mud - At the end of the trail be careful on the 300 foot cliff side descent from the forest to the beach. This path has mangled tree roots with loose dirt . This are has ropes provided by the park service that mark the safest way down the cliff side - if you have trouble with balance or physical challenges do not attempt this hike - that being said the shoreline is beautiful and well worth it, take it slow and you'll be fine - be sure to check the tides for the hike from camp to the Point of the Arches
