Definitely different!! Be aware of tide changed and wear good enclosed shoes that grip well. Beautiful hike. Saw sea lions on rocks in distance. Long drive on curvy rough road to get there.

Beautiful drive. And, the only way to Cape Flattery. Which is a must see if you're in that part of the country.

Idyllic and other worldy

Beautiful drive. Easy, paved, well maintained, winding road. The signs to Cape Flattery are very clear and easy to follow.

On April 1st through the 2nd I hiked the Ozette loop, I made it along the video along the way you can find it here: Cape Alava, Sand Point, Ozette Loop Hike 2018https://youtu.be/Y6Ep3_yVMdk From the trailhead at the Ozette Ranger Station I hiked South to Sand Point where we set up camp and then continued south along the beach towards Yellow Banks. I reached the southernmost cape before yellow banks and turned around due to a high tide and I didn’t want to go over the top. That night there was a few rain showers and then it cleared up. I got up early on Monday the 2nd low tide was at around 8:30 I made a quick hike to Cape Alava that morning with a beautiful sunrise and made it back to Sand Point just in time for breakfast. After Breakfast I just hung around Sand Point and enjoyed the beautiful weather. Shortly after dinner I Left for the vehicles and a long drive home. Again here is the video I made along the way: Cape Alava, Sand Point, Ozette Loop Hike 2018https://youtu.be/Y6Ep3_yVMdk
Overall it was an AMAZING hike there where only 2 trees over the boardwalk.

Be safe out there,

Went Rialto to Ozette in 1.5 days and it was rough but worth it! Tides hold you up and it is slippery with many rocks to climb over. Will do this hike in the future!

Did the north to south route from Ozette to Rialto beach. Big things to remember when hiking this in the winter. Some of the areas on the maps where tides will block the path are a lot longer then they appear on the maps. The rocks between yellow banks and the Norwegian memorial are extremely slippery and for the most part are not passable over 5ft of tide. Also where we averaged 2.5mph on the boardwalks and on the open beach the slick boulder to boulder walking slowed us down to around .5mph. Beach camping for most of the area from sand point to the Norwegian memorial requires a climb into the woods and camping in the ferns. Not impossible in the winter with the short days but you need to plan and take a hard look at the overhead views. Anything that appears like red or brown rock at low tide is extremely slick.

Amazing. Desolate. You'll need a tidal chart.

Hard on your feet, bring blister kit. Watch the tides and have an amazing adventure. Make sure you wear good shoes and bring sunblock! If you can manage to stay awake till all the stars come out, you are in for a treat

Beautiful vistas. Trail is very easy.

What a great trail! The walk out to the beach is on a well
maintained trail of dirt and board walks. The walk along the beach is very nice with all the photo ops: sea stacks, tide pools, driftwood, and the ocean. We did find the petroglyphs, they are right in between the 2 beach access points (1.5 miles from either). We were there at low tide an did not have to climb any of the cliffs to avoid the tides at the points, we did climb the highest, just for the overlook. There are rope to help you up and down. The trail back to the parking area is about the same as the one out to the beach.

The beauty in this place can be described as exciting. Or unforgetable.

Unbelievable coastal scenery. We saw a whale but I guess that is common here.

Amazing! The forest is so beautiful, and then you get to the beach! Make sure you are fit enough to walk 3 miles in the sand; it can be a pain! Totally worth it though, great hike!

One of my favorite places to hike with my kids. It's very easy boardwalk out. This year went the first week of August and it was a bit crowded but still worth the trip from Bellingham.

Amazing!! Did a three day backpacking trip here and some other nearby trails and am in love. The coast is beautiful and it has some of the most amazing sunsets. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good hike or backpacking trip. I'm four hours away and it's well worth the drive!

Beautiful drive on the far northwestern coast of WA state. Provides access to the fishing boats at Neah Bay, and hikes at Cape Flattery and notably Shi Shi beach.

Nice mix of coastal forest and beach walk.
The boardwalks through the forest are very cool.
Feels fairly remote. Walked the loop in mid October and hardly saw anyone along the way.

This trail was not labeled as a primitive trail on our topo map we brought with us though we later found out it was labeled that way on the Olympic Park Trail map. It was nearly impossible to even find the trailhead. A ranger had to move some brush aside to show us the sign. This trail was muddy and very overgrown. It does in fact lead you from the boat in point on Lake Ozette to the beach, but it's a muddy trek.
