Sergio U. on Dungeness Spit Trail
awesome place for memories
great hike to the lighthouse and back, not a lot to see but it's an excellent workout. 11 miles round trip and a three dollar entrance fee the lighthouse volunteers were great make sure to check the tides before going. it's deceiving how difficult it is to walk in the sand so don't take this trail lightly
Great hike for adults and kids 10+. Make sure to bring a liter of water that you can refill at the light house. I hiked the entire 11 miles in flip flops (40 year old fit male) and had some mild soreness in my arches the next day. Our 10 year old was wining by about the 9th mile. The older kids loved it.
Completed the hike today and it was a lot of fun. I parked right at the entrance and hiked the small trail to the trail head, this had some great views of the Puget Sound. Few tips: Use sunscreen, be prepared for spots with loose sand and small rocks, and use the bathroom at the trail head.

This trail is quite breath taking. We lucked out weather wise. We hiked earlier in the morning so the tide was a little higher and the air was a bit chilly. I would recommend packing lots of snacks, a pair of gloves depending on time of year and comfy boots or shoes because hiking on rocks and sand can be a bit difficult. The way back the tide was lower and the trail was easier to hike. There are lots of wildlife to see. We spotted 4 to 5 eagles. Two of which let us get pretty close to photograph from a respectable distance. Overall this was a beautiful hike but just remember it's about 11 miles to and from so prepare accordingly with food and proper clothing. Don't forget sunblock!

We visited Dungeness Spit as a wrap-up to our Olympic National Park trip; we didn't complete the whole trail as the sun was setting and we had already hiked a lot that day, but it was still great to walk down the beach for golden hour. The upper part of the trail before the beach is very nice and educational, although the lookouts are all pretty much obstructed views.
