Solid walk along the trail through the forest to the beach. The trail is well maintained, with considerable sections of boardwalk. A few varied pieces of elevation, but nothing to worry about and would be fine more most walkers. The real treat is getting to the edge of the forest, looking through the trees to the water and making the way to the beach. Rockformations, beautiful sand, deer and eagles. Solid walk.

The Cape Alava Trail is a mostly level hike through a varied old growth/second growth forest with interesting open "prairies" of stunted forest growing in bogs. In August the prairies were actually hot and humid on the return hike. Much of the trail is a boardwalk owing to the muddiness of the forest floor. Payoff is arriving at the coast and Wedding Rocks with some interesting petroglyphs. Most use this trail to backpack north on the coastal trail to Point of Arches, but Lake Ozette is a great secluded camping area itself, especially if you bring canoes/kayaks. Get there early, there are only about a dozen first-come campsites at the lake.
