So gorgeous. Try to go on a sunny day to see just how crystal blue the water is!

Continue past the falls on the trail for little to no crowds and absolute serenity in the forest. That was my favorite part; this place is magical.

insanely beautiful with wild orange mushrooms to one serine log cabin off off to the side of the trail. easy peasy

We went with our 5 and 7 year olds in the pouring rain. It was a great length and experience.

A sweet little trail to a lovely waterfall. We walked this Sept 28th and it was not too crowded.

September 30 2018
Road closed.
10+ mile hike to springs from road closed gate.
We were time restricted and disappointed we couldnt do it.
Road is washed out allegedly.

Lovely, short, easy. Next to a river. Lush.

Even though I almost got my girlfriend and I killed on the way there and on the way back, it was a great day.
Such a beautiful beach at any time of day in any weather. My girlfriend and our dog are trying to sleep away the traumatic experience of getting lost in the Olympic national forrest on low fuel and no cell reception. Bring a backpack to carry your stuff- I had a lot of stuff to carry. Oh and we saw a beached whale and four older men that looked like my dad except they were smiling- With the New Balance shoes and puffy vest, scarce hair and strange goatee- if you fit this description and you’re feeling down I highly recommend you visit Ruby Beach.

Awesome hike! Hit it at mid tide and was able to pass through. Perfect ending to an epic weekend at ONP! Oh and read about the hike before you go. There is a little stream to cross and many were angry as they were not prepared to get their feet wet.

one word.......AMAZING! It combines the beauty of the Oregon coast beaches (large rocks and tons of drift word) and the expanse of sand like the California beaches and of course, the mighty Pacific Ocean in all its glory. Just stunning!!! This is definitely a must do!!!!!

Beautiful beach, easy hike. Great way to spend on the beach if the weather is clear. The trails is easy and the beach has plenty of spots to check out.

Interesting beach due to the trees there - both those fallen on the beach and those standing. We didn’t go as far as the hole in the rock, but enjoyed our walk (can’t really call what we did a hike). Just a really intriguing beach. Also, a good local tip we got was for a restaurant nearby in La Push called The River’s Edge. It is right on the sea and had the BEST calm chowder of my life.

There is a river adjacent to where the beach access is. The river flows into the sea and stopped many people from continuing N up the beach. A couple of girls rolled up their pants and carried their shoes to cross. Its doable, just not something most people wanted to do on a cold , rainy day. We went around low tide. Didn’t find anything in the tidepools. Found a dead whale on the beach which was depressing. Found many crabs or pieces of crabs. Not sure why this beach is beautiful. Found Rialto Beach much more intriguing.

Great for kids! Just the right length and easy. Just North of the Lake Cushman campgrounds.

Came here on 09/10 at like 11am. Weather was perfect. Definitely congested in the parking lot but wasn’t so bad once we got down to the beach. Not so much a hike but just a beautiful place to hang for a bit and drink your coffee.

This was a nice easy hike that was pretty beautiful the whole way. The waterfalls were gorgeous. We went on 09/09 at like 10am. It was sort of a rainy day which maybe helped as there weren’t too many people. We actually had some time completely alone by the lookouts over the falls which doesn’t sound typical. On the drive in we stopped at the first pullout that had a bathroom. Ended up being a little path to a small waterfall overlook that was nice as well you should check out if you are in the area.

Nice, easy, short trail. Lots of interesting trees and a cool bridge. Be sure to take the short detour to see Big Cedar Tree. It’s no longer standing but still awesome. Don’t forget to climb in the roots for a cool pic!

Magical hike through the rainforest. I never tire of how the light flickers in and out and highlights the beauty of these special woods.

Hard to describe how special and beautiful this beach is. We were visiting from Philadelphia and Ruby Beach left us speechless. Originally planned on an hour here but spent close to 4 exploring and watching the tide come in. I think about this afternoon all the time.

So beautiful... tons of hikes and camping. This is a must see!!!

Nice little hike, water is a clear blue, pretty area

We went 2 days in a row and were unable to cross the river to hike to the hole in the wall. The water was slower the second day and we may have crossed through if we had brought sandals, but it's a wide crossing and we decided to skip it rather than go barefoot.

It was breathtaking.

THIS IS CLOSED - NOT ACCESSIBLE AS OF SEPTEMBER 11. The road to the trailhead is closed until October 5 apparently - the road closes about 5 miles from the trailhead (I recommend driving the open part anyway, as it’s beautiful), so maybe you’d be able to walk if you were super keen... but I wasn’t that keen hahaha

One of the prettiest beaches in the state.

Arguably the best beach in the state. I loved the rocky outcropping and the pretty cliffs and beaches.
