HikingGreat!

Nice easy hike and nice beach to explore. Boardwalks could use some repairs so watch for broken boards. North leg of triangle is a bit more up and down with lots of stairs vs south leg that is more flat but with more board walking. Beach trail is kind of difficult in north section with lots of rocks and trees to navigate. Saw lots of washed up nets and floats and a few old tires. Not too many plastic bottles. Petroglyphs were not as easy to see as we expected. Should have packed in with more water since the streams at the north and south points of the triangle are the only places to stop for water which is rather tannic but did not taste that bad.

Easy trail on the beach. Great tide pools at hole-in-the-wall at low tide

Gorgeous sunset views! Just wow!! The only downfall is there are tons of people and all of your pictures will likely have people in them.

We got here around 7AM with the parking lot 80% full. Definitely recommend heading there early.

Less of a trail more of just a short walk down to the beach. This is a packed location I went on one of the hottest days in the summer but it definitely has some beautiful views if you can avoid the people

This is easily my favorite beach in this area! Seriously, holy cow!! Pristine beach, beautiful rocks, and sea life! Everything was magical. I arrived at 9:30 am on a Monday and was able to find parking (5 open spots) - by the time I left at noon the place was PACKED! Get there early. Also, I suggest wearing good hiking shoes. The tide pool rocks get really slippery.

7/23-7/24 We completed the Ozette triangle as my first backpacking trip! The Cape Alava Trail was super neat hiking through the woods (lots of bugs but Off did the trick). Once we reached the ocean we began traveling south (everything north of Cape Alava is currently closed). The northern beach section of the triangle was rocky/sandy with some tree obstacles you had to go over or around. We camped on the north side of Wedding Rocks. In the morning we continued south around wedding rocks where we found petroglyphs! The remainder of the beach section was sand and more challenging to walk in with a 40 pound pack. We reached the sand point trail and walked the remaining 3 miles of the triangle back to the Ozette ranger station. The sand point trail is gorgeous and the majority of it is elevated. There was a lot of broken boards but not hard to step/jump over the holes. Wildlife we encountered on this trip included multiple Bald Eagles, tons of Harbor seals hauled out in the early morning low tide, 1 river otter foraging in the tide pool, and a pair of King Fishers. All in all this was a fantastic hike and a great one for a first time backpacker!

Too rocky and crowded, but beautiful nonetheless.

Extremely amazing. One of the best hikes/walks. It’s not a bad one, just would recommend wearing good shoes for the rocky beach or going barefoot through the soft sand areas. The biggest challenge is a short uphill path to climb over toward the actual hole in the wall from Rialto, a little challenging so be sure to pack good shoes (pants also good because there are poisonous plants up there). The view is AMAZING and the tidepools are so incredible.

Hiking

Hiked this trail 3 miles in from Rialto Beach parking lot. Basically, this is just a walk on the beach until 2.5 miles. Then it becomes more rocky, where you have to navigate up and over numerous large boulders. It isn’t difficult, but anyone with physical challenges regarding bad knees or inability to climb and jump around from rock to rock will struggle. Did not go any further due to nothing new to look at other than ocean beach. Don’t get me wrong, the ocean views were amazing, and saw numerous bald eagles flying around and perched. I wouldn’t consider this much of a “hike” though, or at least the portion I saw.

Great trail! Get there at low tide and take time to explore the tide pools they are breathtaking. On some others reviews I took their advice and wore hiking boots so glad I did, the tide pools are slick and rocky as well the first part of the hike. Very limited parking

Walked counterclockwise on 7/20/2020 with great weather. The boardwalk sections were fast moving and not slick, but the beach section involves some loose sand sections that is slower going. We started around 8:30 and got back around 4:00, with a long lunch, and several stops along the way. We saw other people about every 30 minuets throughout the day on average. This is a great all day hike through spectacular forest and along a picturesque coastline that for us slowly transformed from a series of tide pools to a shallow reef as the tide came in. We saw 3 eagles, 1 hawk, 2 otter, and a bear with 2 cubs. Expected the petroglyphs to be more obvious than they were and only saw a few of them, so if that’s important to you I recommend really paying attention on how to spot them before your on the beach.

There is no evident trail to pick up on the beach. The tide was out so we walked out to the rocks instead and enjoyed viewing sea anemones, starfish, snails, and hermit crabs in the tide pools. Stunning views even on this overcast, misty day.

It’s so beautiful trail. Forest and beach hiking. It took 4,5 hours with stops for photos. 30$ entrance fee, so better to have park pass (80$ for a year) or at least you should have a pen to fill up the entrance form (it was really a problem for us, thanks guys who gave us a pencil). Also very important!!! You can find Wedding Rocks there with super old petroglyphs. We didn’t know about it and missed it(

The coolest beach I've ever been to. It's a Forest-beach and seems like the clouds never clear. (even on a sunny day) It's great for anybody, easy, and totally recommend for a recovery hike. Perfect for spooky photos

HikingRocky

Nice trail, great views along the whole way. You’re walking along the beach for the whole hike pretty much. The first .25/.5 miles is pretty rocky, but the rocks are smooth and flat. The rest of the way is generally sandy. Lots of drift logs washed up on the shore along the way there. The constant ocean breeze keeps you cool while you’re walking along. It’s very crowded near the parking lot, but as you push down the beach it becomes less congested. To get to the hole in the wall area, you have to climb up a little hill, but the path up is pretty worn and not hard to get up.

HikingGreat!No shadeRocky

7/20/20: Walked about 7 miles total (not the entire 13, due to high tide preventing passage when the water came right against a cliff). In the morning it was foggy but cleared up as the sun lifted the clouds. The views of the boulders in the sea were great. If you look in the tide pools, you can see lots of wildlife: we saw huge starfish, lots of hermit crabs, anemones, and some fish. The tide rises very fast -- we had to scramble over the hill by hole in the wall because we could not get back through it because of the water. The waves went all the way to the logs on the beach, making the walk back a little bit more difficult. Beware of unstable rocks on the rocky sections of the beach. Don't forget sunscreen! The beginning of the beach near the parking lot is definitely busy, but gets less crowded as you get further away.
