Dungeness Wildlife Refuge is part of Dungeness County Park which borders the coast. We saw deer here, guys kite boarding, and interestingly the 5.5 mile sand spit into the ocean which forms Dungeness Bay. This can be seen from a lookout along Voice of America...More

I have seen some people who do bike the trail to the spit I don't think it would be advisable. The trail is not that long and is frequented by may people. Also that last hill down to the shore is rather steep and a bike... More

Dogs are not allowed on the trail, unfortunately. I think they are allowed in the camp and picnic areas.
