HikingGreat!

We had as much fun walking through the tree to get to the beach as we did at the beach. Don't get me wrong, we loved every second of them both! Had a fantastic time!

Perfect day in the Pnw for a beach walk. We were the only people most of the way. Stopped on the side of the road at Beach 2--limited parking compared to the other 3 beaches--and hiked south, then back north.

Loved strolling along the beach to find rocks, shells, and sand dollars.

Amazing, so peaceful and beautiful. Very few people and no boats or ships in sight. At low tide the beach is very wide. There are washed out crabs and jellyfish in the sand. Plenty of driftwood. There is a very small parking lot at the side of Highway 101, and the short trail leading to the beach starts there. After one mile of walking southbound on the beach, Beach 2 ends and Beach 1 begins. Each one is about 1 mile long. Wonderful place to walk. Can be very windy and the wind is very cold, so dress accordingly.

Hard to beat this for coastal scenery. We stayed at Kalaloch in the cabins along the beach in mid-December and walked the beaches for hours during the day. Then, later in the afternoon we went back to the cabin for a nice warm fire and some book read'n.

First to Review

My wife and I visited Beach Trail 2 during a high tide advisory. The trail down to the beach is very short and well-maintained. The beach itself was littered with large logs and various other debris. We only saw a couple of people for the hour we were there.
