Description
Waypoints (0)

Users have reported that the trails are not marked well. This hike is through an undeveloped Washington State Park near Diamond Point on the Miller Peninsula between Discovery Bay and Sequim Bay on the Olympic Peninsula. Except for the final mile, or so, as the trail goes down to the beach, it is on old logging roads. You should see blooming Western Rhododendrons along the trail in May. Beautiful forest of second growth Douglas fir and western red cedar with lush undergrowth of salal, ocean spray, and other typical Pacific Northwest plants. The beach is totally undeveloped with views of Protection Island. It is very rocky, and at high tide the beach is difficult to walk. We saw an immature bald eagle, pigeon guillemots, and black oyster catchers at the beach.

Great trail and beach for dogs! Some of the forks didn’t have signs so check the All Trails map for guidance.

The woodland views were alright, but it was the magical entrance to the hidden beach that was the real treat!

Such a gorgeous forest walk that leads to a beautiful beach. We saw no hikers as we went to the beach and about 6 in total returning. No biting bugs out there!

HikingGreat!

Awesome, easy trail for beginners leading down to a secluded rocky beach. Trail was well marked throughout and down towards the beach path the trail gets a bit narrow, but it was beautiful! Passed 4 people on the way there and had the entire beach to myself.

Paths are well marked and kept, but there aren’t many vistas. Beautiful changes of scenery on the different trails

This trail is not that well marked as you move away from the trailhead. This is quite likely due to the network of trails that weave in and out of this trail. There are some signs but I relied heavily on the app to keep on track. This is a beautiful trail with a wide variety of wildflowers. There is a bit of overgrowth on parts of the trail where the path becomes single file when walking with others We saw no one for the first hour or so and after that we saw a total of 6 others. I would do this again in spring as I am sure the rhododendrons would be gorgeous in bloom. PS. Use bug repellant!

There is no parking at this trail head so we didn't end up doing the route planned. Road is super buggy and hiking trails are muddy with lots of horse poop.

Pretty easy trail until you get to the last part going to the beach. It’s muddy in spots and a few fallen trees. Trail is marked well and there is another kiosk when you come to the fork of fireweed rd and cable trail. As you continue up fireweed I saw a few more markers letting you know what trail you are on and the others that are also in the area. The only confusing part is in the beginning when you come to the trail paths with the kiosk it has a sign for the cable trail (steep up hill) and then another trail that doesn’t have a marker. the cable trail name is not listed on this site so you have to guess which trail it is. Even with a missing sign this app made it easy to know right where I was. Over all we loved this walk, although it’s 4.7 miles out and back. A bit longer then the 4.1 listed.

Hiked this stretch of trail as part of a larger hike yesterday of the Manzanita & Bluff Loop trail. The Beach Trail was relatively dry, compared with the surrounding trails we hiked. Muddy, but not boggy. We met 4 other people and 2 dogs hiking toward the beach as my buddy and I hiked up from the beach to rejoin the Fireweed Road Trail. This is a nice, scenic, easy trail.

Looked like the trailhead started at Aerospace PVT road by Fireweed road but no parking so went back to State parking area purchased Discovery pass. Walked up around the loop dodging horse chips and Diamond point East trail and switchbacks uphill. Lots of mushrooms. A few roots and stones. Saw a tree frog and some bugs. Got to the Fireweed road which was easy. To the beach trail. Lots of alder and ferns. Made good time back to the road and to the loop trail. Confused by the sign as it pointed us back the trail for parking. Took a wrong turn towards the other residential road realized we needed to track back to where the restrooms were on the map. Returned to the parking lot. Peaceful and not many others. We walked 7 miles but I think it's closer to 6 mikes.

This trail is 3.5 miles from the gate, however it’s about the same distance to get to the gate so more like 7.5 miles. Best place to access trail is from the state park (pass required) instead of the directions on this app. The trail is lovely and interesting. Lots of adorable little frogs.

Pretty easy trail, but does have a couple steep hills. Lots of horse droppings and a couple of muddy spots. The weather was 60 and sunny. The views from the beach were amazing. Our hike totaled 5.9 miles walking the diamond point trail in and out.
