Amazing! The forest is so beautiful, and then you get to the beach! Make sure you are fit enough to walk 3 miles in the sand; it can be a pain! Totally worth it though, great hike!

One of my favorite places to hike with my kids. It's very easy boardwalk out. This year went the first week of August and it was a bit crowded but still worth the trip from Bellingham.

One of my all-time favorites.

Amazing!! Did a three day backpacking trip here and some other nearby trails and am in love. The coast is beautiful and it has some of the most amazing sunsets. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good hike or backpacking trip. I'm four hours away and it's well worth the drive!

great coastal trail, with plank trails throughout the forest.

Nice mix of coastal forest and beach walk.
The boardwalks through the forest are very cool.
Feels fairly remote. Walked the loop in mid October and hardly saw anyone along the way.

Beautiful sunsets at camp at Cape Alava... Highly recommended for 1st time backpackers
