Not easy to walk on with lots of different size rocks and shifting sand. But great for sea glass finding adventure!

My first time out looking for beach glass. Driving directions are pretty accurate, you want to start at North Beach on Kuhn St, which is adjacent to Fort Worden. I checked the tides and started about an hour and half before the low tide, figured that would give me lots of time. If you have never hiked on the beach before, distance is deceptive. When you face west on the beach, the most outward jutting point is where you are headed. Once you arrive at several car axels) and round the point, this is where Glass Beach probably starts. Note that you can pick tiny pieces of glass almost the whole way. But if the tide will be an issue, keep an eye it. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I did find some pieces about nickel size. I'm not very good and looking for things like this, so I probably missed a lot. Picked up a lot of the tiny chip pieces also, just because collectively they are very pretty. Hike ended up being about 6 mi rt. Started out a little overcast and finished pretty sunny. Loved it, would do it again.

This was exhausting but I now have a ton of seaglass - 5 colors (yellow, brown, green, blue, and clear). I would recommend walking on the compacted sand and when there isn't any sand, walk on the larger rocks. I would also recommend a hat if it's hot and sunny.

Great day exploring the beach and glass treasures. My favorite is the pottery pieces.

While some glass rocks (mostly smaller clear ones) can be found fairly close to the parking lot, it’s well worth the gorgeous beach walk to find the larger, more colorful glass rocks at Glass Beach. Watch the tide- you’re walking between water and cliffs the entire route, so plan accordingly, because there’s only one way in & one way out. Some of the walk is soft sand, coarse sand, pea gravel-sized rocks, and larger, roll-your-ankle sized rocks, so wear good, supportive shoes. There were not very many people out but almost all of them had dogs with them. I would definitely walk this trail & hunt for glass rocks again!

great way to spend the day gathering glass, agates, and jasper

What a beautiful walk along the beach. We went looking for beach glass and found some but you really had to stop and look along the way. We found quite a few small pieces but no real big ones. plan on at least a half of a day if you plan on searching. We where out for around 5 hours and walked about 7 miles round-trip

We took a group of kids ages 3 to 16 years and all had a wonderful time. I read mixed reviews on whether we would find beach glass or not. We did find a good amount of smaller pieces which the kids LOVED collecting as well as several dime and quarter sized pieces. They also found numerous cool rocks. We found crabs and sea anemones as well as saw several bald eagles. We did not do the entire length because the tide started coming in. Be very careful on timing it with the tide as it comes in fast and there are steep cliffs which would be impossible to climb with small ones. There are alot of loose rocks which your forced to walk once the tide comes in which slows the return a bit.

When the tides get higher it is difficult to go through a couple parts. Great walk. Long but not too long. Will be going back. Wear good shoes for uneven walking.

Great place to walk on the beach. Many houses very close to the beach. A lot of kelp in low tide. You can park at the North Beach County Park parking lot.

Boring walk, very heavily trafficked. Not for the weak ankle. It’s mainly rock, and unsteady sand. Not much for beach glass if you’re just looking. Saw tons of people digging though! Spent the entire time with my head down so I didn’t trip on the rocks, but did see 2 eagles and a sea lion.

Beautiful and somewhat easy hike that ended up being 6.9 miles roundtrip. Started about 7am and had the whole beach to our selves until about 11 o'clock. You need to time it right with the tide so you don't get pushed up to the bluffs. About halfway down there are some bigger rocks that made it a little strenuous but once you get to main beach it flattens out. It is hard to find larger sea glass, but once the sun comes up or the bluffs the beach starts to glisten with hundreds of ity bity tiny pieces of glass, of all different colors. Very beautiful hike!!

A peaceful, scenic walk between the Strait and the cliffs. If you plan on glass hunting make sure you plan around the tides and give yourself a lot of time. Not ideal for small children if you plan on making the trek all the way to the point and back.

Small pieces of glass on a pebble and sand beach. Entrance of the park has port o'potties. Park has a pavilion and grassy area. Not a lot of parking spaces during peak times. Plan your search for glass around low tide. Both my kids, 13 and 10 years old enjoyed looking for glass.

Love this beach... beautiful view and lots of beach glass .

Great OP beach walk to an area containing large deposits of sea glass. Watch the tide charts as the beach is narrow at spots and bordered by a 75' plus bluff making it impassable at high tide. Be sure to give yourself enough time to return after collecting your sea glass.
