See Ozette on the map above (A), named for an ancient Makah village discovered at Cape Alava. Not labeled on the map is Neah Bay, which lies within the reservation on the northwestern portion of the peninsula. The Hoko-Ozette road runs from Ozette and comes out near Clallum Bay. Also notice Forks and Port Angeles, the location of the park headquarters. British Columbia can be seen just across the Strait of Juan de Fuca, named for a possibly apocryphal Greek sailor.

Here you can see Cape Alava and Sand Point which, along with Ozette, form the corners of a nine-mile loop popular with day-hikers. To the north lies Shi Shi beach.
