Leadbetter Point State Park is a natural area open for day use. The park features beach frontage on the Pacific Ocean and Willapa Bay. It borders the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge which has about five miles of ocean beach and several miles of bay beach. There are views of the Pacific Ocean to the west and Willapa Bay and hills to the east. The park is part of the Willapa Bay Water Trail. Visitors can enjoy hiking, fishing and clamming at the park.

this trail is closed as a snowy plover habitat. I gave it a 2 because we couldn't do it and it might be nice. it also is VERY swampy in this park and smells. wouldn't recommend.

heads up that this trail is like half through a salt marsh. there weren't too many mosquitos in February but it smells like old sewage and the only birds we saw were dead. it was beautiful but gross. we couldn't even make it to the beach because of how marshy it was. I might go back with waders, but I would throw them away before getting back into my car.

Eaten ALIVE by mosquitos. 1.25 miles into it and we turned back and ran out to get away from them.

Early August and hardly no mosquitos and the trail was in perfect condition. Beautiful nice hike through the peninsula to the beach. easy, flat and the scenery is so picturesque. The beach is empty and the sea shells are untouched. Love this trail.

Beautiful, well maintained trail! looks like it belongs in a story book. Usually we encounter lots of mosquitos but early August and there were very few. The beach part of the trail we always find 20-30 perfect sand dollars. This is an easy and flat hike. Love this trail!

so so miserable knee deep swamp that has you covered in mosquitoes.

a huge swamp & mosquito farm. We were knee deep in muddy water, but had to finish the loop that we started from the other trails. We are currently bit from head to toe. My 9yr old son was crying he was so miserable. We are experienced hikers & did a 13mile backpack trip last wknd. Stay away from this park & trail.

Only good if you enjoy walking around the waters edge and being attack by mosquitoes the whole time on a goat path of "trails"

This hike was a blast! Four of us hiked in knee and thigh deep water for a mile in and then a mile out on the yellow trail. We had to climb over fallen trees and and lots of mud. The beach had lots of cool shells but also a lot of trash. Not a family friendly hike.

Really beautiful but there are some muddy, overgrown areas. Love the ocean

This trail is severely overgrown but it offers a beautiful secluded beach off the Pacific Ocean at the end. There are other trails nearby but they don't allow dogs.

This trail is severely overgrown but pretty. There's a stunning sweep of very private beach off the Pacific Ocean. Very few people use this trail. You may want to wear pants as the growth is quite high in areas. You will need to stoop under some low branches as well. There are other trails nearby but they don't allow dogs. It was worth seeing once but uncertain as to whether we'll repeat.

(july 2nd 2012)This is a trail you want to do barefoot for a few reasons it's a soft trail with sand and pine needles, but there was puddles knee deep, to be fair there was a lot of rain the last few days. Definitely bring skeeter spray with a high percentage of deet. But this hike was awesome we saw deer, porcupines and a black bear. All in all it was a good day. The beach was full of shells and no one was around, so that made it nice. Highly recommended!
