Be prepared to scramble over piles of driftwood trees. The reward is a stunning beach where at low tide you can walk to the sea stacks and see starfish and more clinging to the sides. Low tide the day we went was -2.5, super low! We were able to walk on sand the whole way. Check the tide charts before you go.

Great sandy beach, amazing views. Pretty easy hike.

Good mix of forest and beach. On a weekday wasn’t terribly crowded and it’s exhilarating to go rock-hopping out to the big mesa-looking thing and snap a pic or two.

Absolutely magical! First time, will be back..,!

Perfect hike to a perfect beach... Bring Your Beer and watermelon !

Mellow trail with an awesome coastal view at the end

Great beach. A short hike through the woods and them you arrive at the beach. Amazing views of rocks, waves and sea stacks.

Amazing views. Great walk at low tide. Plenty of driftwood on the beach. Short walk down through the woods before reaching the beach.

Awesome hike! The walk through the woods is already fantastic and you haven't even gotten to the good part yet. Was pretty calm: only ran into six other people.

Went Rialto to Ozette in 1.5 days and it was rough but worth it! Tides hold you up and it is slippery with many rocks to climb over. Will do this hike in the future!

Beautiful, could sit at the beach all day. The views are amazing. Closer to the beach (at the last .05) are a bunch of stairs going down, when you get to the beach you have to cross/climb over drift wood to get on the beach. Not suitable for everyone.

Stunning views of the sea stacks and ocean.

Cool way to walk

It’s a great hike down to the beach but is almost entirely downhill. Once reaching the bottom, there are large amounts of driftwood to navigate before reaching sand. It’s truly a sight once you’re on the beach. The only let down was some trash from humans. The walk back was entirely uphill and tiring. The trail is one lane only so sometimes you have to stand aside to let traffic pass. Be prepared to be a little wore out after traversing sand and the uphill climb combo

Camped on beach New Years eve- full moon and sunrise -beautiful! amazing place! Take the short hike down to see this stretch of awesome beach!

Did the north to south route from Ozette to Rialto beach. Big things to remember when hiking this in the winter. Some of the areas on the maps where tides will block the path are a lot longer then they appear on the maps. The rocks between yellow banks and the Norwegian memorial are extremely slippery and for the most part are not passable over 5ft of tide. Also where we averaged 2.5mph on the boardwalks and on the open beach the slick boulder to boulder walking slowed us down to around .5mph. Beach camping for most of the area from sand point to the Norwegian memorial requires a climb into the woods and camping in the ferns. Not impossible in the winter with the short days but you need to plan and take a hard look at the overhead views. Anything that appears like red or brown rock at low tide is extremely slick.

Best place on the planet

Easy hike down to the beach! Watch the tides, they roll in pretty fast. Tons of places to explore, but a lot of driftwood to maneuver through.

Amazing. Desolate. You'll need a tidal chart.

We hiked here in May 2017. It was a cold and drizzly day, but the hike itself to the beach was pleasant. The beach was so neat! We were there at low tide and got to see the tide pools and all their little critters. I wish it had been a bit clearer, as we couldn't see out into the water very far, but it was still a great experience. And it was amazing how cold that water was!

I loveeee this beach and the entire la push area. It's always a beautiful visit and the camping/food near by is well priced.

Hard on your feet, bring blister kit. Watch the tides and have an amazing adventure. Make sure you wear good shoes and bring sunblock! If you can manage to stay awake till all the stars come out, you are in for a treat

Beautiful, easy hike. Must climb over driftwood to get on the beach. Busier than third beach.

Been coming here for about 20 years. It's so beautiful and a family favorite. We decided to backpack this time with our 3 kids ages 14, 12 and 8. Easy enough for them. However, I have never seen it as busy as this time. Crazy amount of people hiking down with coolers, cases of beer, etc. Thanks to the internet, this place has gotten very popular. Which makes me wonder about the cleanliness of this beach after tons of people have camped on the beach and left garbAge and their poop behind. There was so much human feces barely buried under the sand. Something needs to change.

Just wonderful!

Love, love, love. My 3 children and I go hiking here every year for the 6 years when we visit the PNW. Also visit 1st and 3rd beach. There is a local restaurant on La Push and if you are lucky enough to be in the area for the Quileute Days...fireworks and all

Get ready to climb over fallen logs, wade through ferns and crouch under low hanging tree branches, for this is an overgrown, not very maintained trail! For me, this trail was a fun adventure that made me feel truly alone in nature (we were the only ones on the trail!). There was a trail to follow, but at times I had to check my surroundings to make sure I was on the right path. The hike was very easy, quaint and quiet and led to a misty river. I would definitely recommend! I started at the Mora Ranger station on Mora Rd.

This was an easy, fun, relaxing hike. We did the hike on a weekday afternoon and it was not too crowded, but the crowds were increasing when we left at 5pm. There was a porta potty at the trailhead.

Two nights here was the highlight of our trip down the coast. We went during the week and missed the crowds.

Beautiful place and plenty of parking
