Beautiful, easy hike with crashing waves and quiet shoreline. We saw dozens of pelicans and large, interesting driftwood.

Pretty cool! Very simple easy walk. Perfect for kids, dogs, etc.

This trail is by far an absolute favorite. You can start going the backside or the front depending on where the sun, tide, and wind are and what kind of experience you want. The back is fantastic and quiet and picturesque and is nicely protected from the noise is the surf and the wind. A wonderful way to exercise and find great rocks!

This is a beautiful trail that I introduce everyone to that visits me in Ocean Shores. The lake, the trees, and the occasional deer can create a mindful stroll or get people new to hiking excited about it. if you are in Ocean Shores I strongly encourage taking a walk in Weatherwax.

Did this trail with my sister and 1 year old niece. My niece absolutely loved it! The trail is beautiful. We even saw a deer! This was our first trail and it inspired us to start doing trails all over together!

This is our new favorite beach! Very kid friendly with lots of beautiful agates and birds.

cold n smelly

I'm giving this a 5 because it's the perfect space for a mindful walk solo or with others. it's simple - quiet- and very calming

Easy trail. Wish it was longer, but nice for a quick hike through the area. You get a good sense of the forest landscape before Ocean Shores was developed.

Great to do if you happen to be in the area but don’t make a special t up just for this one.

Pretty area. Quiet peaceful walk through the woods.

Beautiful area! It was very busy with lots of off leash dogs with not very polite owners.

A lovely little walk around a pond. Ducks and geese swimming in the pond. It is a well maintained path with many benches to sit down along the way. It is very close to private houses, but in October the place was unbelievably quiet and overall the place feels kind of like a magic garden. The trail starts at the back of the Cabana Pool parking lot.

A very pleasant walk on the beach. Very relaxing due to the constant sound of the ocean waves. You can follow the trail or walk to the tip of the point where the ocean and the bay meet. There are some birds but not too many, as it is a popular dog walking spot. You can see some jellyfish washed out on the sand. The crab carcasses and the tree logs and uprooted tree stumps on the sand give the place a little bit of an apocalyptic landscape look. It is a great place to visit at different times of day, or different days, as the tide changes and that makes a difference as to how far out you can walk. On a warm Sunday in October the parking lot was full.

I really enjoyed walking around the entire point on the beach. I think it would be best to do it either right at sunrise or about an hour before sunset to really appreciate the beauty of this place!

Great walk but the port-a-potties at the trail head were so full you could see the top of it before you stepped up inside.

I love this trail and did it multiple times on a recent trip. It can be a loop or an out-and-back depending on the route you take. So peaceful, lots of birds, have seen deer!

Amazing quick hike was completely amazed that on a busy sunny Saturday the trail was actually empty I mean it seemed like were had our own island. But views were great and its a really easy pace.

This little trail felt like a hidden world in the middle of town. Very easy, well worn, flat trail. Great walk/hike after breakfast or before lunch.
