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.

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

Very peaceful and awesome beach.

Short hike (maybe cause I jogged it) but very eye opening once you make it down the sleek (it was snowing) steps...spits you right out on the beach...stacks to the right and second to the left are scalable and beautiful views from up top...it was hailing/snowing while I was on top of the stack with made it EPIC!!

Short climb down to the beach, and then just run around the beach exploring. Beautiful. Not crowded at 8am on Saturday in December.

One of the most beautiful beaches I've ever laid eyes on. We've talked about flying back across the country solely to spend a couple weeks hiking the area. We were there in April and had beautiful sunshine, though per the locals it was the first sun they had seen in 13 days.

We walked down to 2nd beach. It's a very easy hike with slight climbing.

Must see!!!! Good hike, not too hard! Worth the trip:) love love love this beach!

The actual trail is only .7 miles to the beach. The rest of the hike is South down the beach. It ends when you can't go any further because of the rocks and terrain. Basically where the beach ends. Still really pretty and a nice walk. Plan your trip durning low tide to see all the tide pools and little creatures living in them.

Very beautiful area, with the added bonus of a nice walk through the wood, (a few steps in the end before the beach, not a favorite of my wife), Arrived to late to explore the beach to much, but it did give us one of the most spectacular sunsets I have ever seen! (Don't forget you have to walk in the woods to get back to your car, make sure you have some kinda light, it got VERY dark in the woods after sunset)

We were fogged in but it was still warm and beautiful and the kids played in the surf.

Wonderful experience and great personal challenge to keep going.
