From Long Beach, north 18 miles on Highway 103 to Leadbetter Point State Park. The route passes through Oysterville and is well signed. The trailhead is at the end of the road within the Leadbetter Point State Park.

Actual trail along the inner coast is blocked by tree fall. You can take the other loop out to the beach on the ocean side instead

Nice trail! There are animals, beaches, and all sorts of washed up Knick knacks. Definitely some mud and mosquitos but all in all it’s a good trail. We’ve taken our 2 kids on it twice now and we love it!

We have hiked this trail twice. Once in September and it was perfect. Today in March the trail was flooded. Very easy for our kids to do, but we turned back when we hit water over the trails.

This trail disappears one mile in where a wetlands crossing is. We looked for a spot to cross but couldn’t see anything less than a foot deep. It is a marsh area so very muddy with trees fallen down. The maps of the area don’t show this hike on them and the portion we were able to complete was not improved and not a visible trail.

Shortened version. Too mushy crossing over to ocean side. Elk droppings but no elk

I went here at dusk and I was so beautiful and peaceful. It's a good place to see wildlife.

Snakes. Snakes and Snakes! I encountered 4 HUGE snakes during my hike today and I'm literally never going back! I've never seen so many snakes on a trail! They love the cool, wet environment in that wooded area!!

this trail is closed as a snowy plover habitat. I gave it a 2 because we couldn't do it and it might be nice. it also is VERY swampy in this park and smells. wouldn't recommend.

Eaten ALIVE by mosquitos. 1.25 miles into it and we turned back and ran out to get away from them.

Beautiful, well maintained trail! looks like it belongs in a story book. Usually we encounter lots of mosquitos but early August and there were very few. The beach part of the trail we always find 20-30 perfect sand dollars. This is an easy and flat hike. Love this trail!

Only good if you enjoy walking around the waters edge and being attack by mosquitoes the whole time on a goat path of "trails"

This hike was a blast! Four of us hiked in knee and thigh deep water for a mile in and then a mile out on the yellow trail. We had to climb over fallen trees and and lots of mud. The beach had lots of cool shells but also a lot of trash. Not a family friendly hike.

(july 2nd 2012)This is a trail you want to do barefoot for a few reasons it's a soft trail with sand and pine needles, but there was puddles knee deep, to be fair there was a lot of rain the last few days. Definitely bring skeeter spray with a high percentage of deet. But this hike was awesome we saw deer, porcupines and a black bear. All in all it was a good day. The beach was full of shells and no one was around, so that made it nice. Highly recommended!
