Easy little trail to the beach. Looks like it’s been recently worked on as there are a some improvements. The trail begins right next to the sign by the road. The bench at the beach is beautiful! Kudos to whoever built it. The beach is great for low tide exploration or just sitting and watching the Southworth Ferry come and go.

Nice nature walk. Tide was way out with lots of slippery seaweed. The trail is marked with one wood sign. A little further up is another sign for the trail but looks more like a driveway, which it is, but also a nice walk to the cove as well.

Short hike but beautiful all around. Hike through old growth to the beach and get the best that Washington has to offer.
