We are from LA. We have plenty of beaches. The Olympic National Park is something else entirely: Forest cliffs, ruggedness, wind torn waves, little rock islands dotting the coast, heaps of foot deep kelp, entire trees washed up on the beach. This has been my...More

This was a very good hike ...the title is just expressing the sights of the day. We caught a great weather day, a cool morning warming up into the 70s by mid-afternoon. Perfect. We hiked out to Cape Alava and, once out on the beach...More

Great hike, well maintained trails in great condition except the way back from Sand point, lots of broken boards on the boardwalk, but that didn't take away any. 3 miles out on the Avalanche trail in the woods, then 3 miles on the beach, check...More

This is one of our favorite hikes to the ocean. There are two trails to the ocean, the one that goes to the right has a lot more board walk. We usually go in the off season or during the week days.

Did the loop. Did the first third of the loop. Did the second part along the beach. The trail back to the Ranger Station is not as clearly marked as we hoped - we lost a friend there for a bit, but overall, this is...More
