Cape Lookout is a 2 mile spit of land made by lava flows; the cliffs are 800 feet high. Here is a photo of the spit. When you are hiking it feels like you are deep in a forest.
It's not our first time on Cape Lookout but it's been a while since we hiked there. You can see lots more photos of Cape Lookout on Google Images.
