Beach 1 provides a quick hike out to seastacks, driftwood logs, and a perfect lagoon for skipping stones. A quick stroll along this beach will show great examples of the shoreline in Olympic National Park. There are towering seastacks, piles of driftwood logs, and an amazing array of wave-polished stones of all colors.

Beautiful trail and beach. We typically see eagles nesting and hunting. Lots of marine life on the rocks in the shallow pools. This place is tranquil and so peaceful.

Easy hike down to the beach. Once on the beach you can choose how far you want to hike to the stacks. Foggy in the evening when I was there

Very short hike (more a path) to the beach. Beach had tons of driftwood to cross but wasn't hard. Cool surf and rocks...

This trail is well worn and takes you to the beach. The beach with all the rocks both in and out of the water was very different that what I am used to on the east coast. Very chilly even in June.

Easy but amazing view of the coastline. Definitely need a coat but the view and sunset makes it well worth it.

The trail isn't much, the real fun is the beach. Some good tide pools and perfect sand for walking. Really easy to go far enough away from the crowd to explore and let your dog off leash, no one really cares. Had a good time.

Wow, I guess being from a land locked state that is what I can say. This beach is divine.
