Great hike all the way around. Didn’t look at the tide forecast beforehand but proved you CAN do this hike when the tide’s high although it is more difficult. Didn’t see any signs of the bear and her cub that I’ve heard so much about but that doesn’t mean she isn’t around. Great winter hike!

Downed trees on the Sand Point leg of the trail, about half mile from the trailhead. Tall foliage makes it difficult to locate trail again once you go around if you’re short. Bear tracks on beach nearest the Sand Point trail leg/beach junction.

This was my First Hike Ever! Absolutely Gorgeous! Fell in Love with hiking to the point I decided to permanently moving to Washington. The path is spectacular with a variety of of stone paths and wooden stairs. Wooden bridge is a bit narrow only one direction of traffic at a time.

Breathe taking views, especially at the sunset, late December trail was messy and slippery

I’m a rookie at trails and enjoyed this.

Super fun and easy boardwalk trail, we backpacked in and camped at one of the sites along the water, it was a blast. Didn’t do the full triangle, just an out and back, no time for the full beach section, but I’ve heard the petroglyphs are very cool.

Did the trail 12/23. There is a lot of down trees .5 mi in on the Sand Point trail leg making it very difficult to get around. Was an easy walk/hike with beautiful views along the ocean even though it was raining. The ocean leg of the hike slowed things down due to it being harder to walk on the rocks/sand/logs/seaweed. Saw 2 small black bears on the edge of the woods along ocean.

beautiful, although short. make sure to get your visitors permit (the gas station sells it) as you can't buy it at the trailhead.

loved it

Hiked the Sand Point trail as an out and back. Wanted to do the entire loop but it was raining pretty heavily, high tide had come in and the presence of a mama bear and her cubs down the beach where we were going to go also made us reconsider. No matter. This trail is absolutely gorgeous and has everything. Majestic forests with towering trees, ferns blanketing the forest floor, ocean views. It is an extremely easy trail as it is an improved path and/or boardwalks all throughout. In the rain though, the boardwalk gets slick so use caution when walking (I even fell once walking slightly too fast). We definitely want to come back and do the Cape Alava Trail and then explore the beach at low tide. It’s kind of hard to get to as the roads are windy and there’s pretty much nothing else out that way but I recommend anyone to make the special trip.

Backpacked out here on 10/26, hiked in on the Cape Alava trail, then South along the beach. This is much easier to do at low tide! Be aware as of that day there is a mother black bear with two cubs who doesn't seem to be terribly afraid of humans. It's a beautiful flat trail with wonderful views of rock formations and the opportunity to see Petroglyphs. I'll definitely be back.

This short little path was rather popular with the tourists on the day that I visited. But the nice view at the end was worth putting up with the crowds.

The middle section of this spectacular trail hugs the coastline and is dotted with hundreds of tide pools. There’s so much to explore that the hike ended up taking longer than anticipated.

Absolutely stunning. Worth the stop.

This was my 2nd hike ever, loved the bridges and stone stairs. Absolutely gorgeous

Worth the

Beautiful, wide sandy beach. Amazing sunsets. Lots of seagulls. Easy, flat 3 mile boardwalk trail in.

Hiked to Camp Alava this August in the late afternoon and found a spot at the very end of the camping area. Pretty crowded. The trail itself was super friendly with the boardwalks and easy terrain. Day 2 I hiked to Sand Point. Camped early and enjoyed the beach for most of the day. This part of the trail, along the coast, I had to watch my step a little more, over rocks, driftwood and tide pools. Day 3 was a quick hike back on the other boardwalk. Beautiful and satisfying hike.

This is one of my favorite views I have ever viewed.

completed the trail in 2 days. spent the night at Cape Alava. overland trail by wedding rocks washed out in a section. handful of blow downs across the beach after wedding rocks. a few broken boards on the board walk going towards Sand Point.
Cape Alava has great camp sites. we fit 3 tents comfortably. Nice privys. We saw 5 raccoons, but non bothered us or our bear canisters.

went on this trail with some friends. it was an awesome trail with plenty to see. the sunset was wonderful and we could see the whales blowing out there air at the surface.

This hike was pretty out of the way down a winding irritating roads that never ends it seems. Also, there are a decent amount of people here so you aren’t really ever alone. This is such an absolutely magical place. We were here on 09/09 in the afternoon. Was kind of an overcast day but that didn’t have any affect on the beauty. We had binoculars on us and that made this one of my Fiancé’s favorite parts of our trip. There was a far off rock covered in seals that were jumping on and off the rock and you could see swimming around. Kind of cool to see them in the wild.

Beautiful hike! It's about a mile out and a mile back and very scenic the whole hike with amazing views in the middle and at the end. A little up and down, wood planks cover part of the trail with exposed tree roots on a dirt trail. Trying to be very specific for people who may have joint issues. I have trekking poles and that really helped my knees A LOT! The drive there is rather tedious.... Lots of switch backs, very long. I definitely recommend this, but this driving at night (I did) is scary.

We did this as a clockwise bike going to Camp Alava and beach hike to Sand Point on first day. Our route was determined to coincide with low tide and desire to camp at Sand Point. Not many folks at all but it was also pretty rainy weather.

Petroglyphs were amazing. Also saw a large female sea lion on the beach and very large male on the rocks about 100 yards from us. A black bear was roaming the beach at Sand Point.

We left Camp Alava about two hours after high tide and encountered several large trees to navigate under, over or around. Another hour and we could have just walked around them. It took about three hours for us to go from Camp Alava to Sand Point including some time at Wedding Rock to search for the petroglyphs.

Water was readily available at Sand Creek and although it definitely had color to it after filtering, it actually was very acceptable for drinking even without adding anything to it.

This was a beautiful hike in a remote area and we will definitely go back. As a side note, we found a lot of trash at several of the campsites at Sand Point. It was very disappointing to see the lack of respect some campers have for such a beautiful area. It was also a real eye-opener to see the large trash items washed up from the ocean -- mostly plastic, but also tires and even a row boat.

This is my favorite place in Washington! This area is so beautiful and I recommend it for everyone. I think everyone who lives in the PNW should go here at least once because it is so stunning.
My family and I went in the summer so we found that it was pretty crowded but not overly so that it took away from the sight-seeing. It was sunny but cold even in summer so make sure to wear layers! Also: parking can be hard to find.
The trail is easy and short so I don't even consider this a hike. It is easy enough that people don't come here for the workout; they come for the sights!

A magnificent place. So much beautiful nature to appreciate. The views change and astound all the time. The tides, fog, sun make a lot of difference. The boardwalk and the rocks on the beach can get slippery. A lot of driftwood on the beach. A truly amazing experience. Wooden walkways leading to the beach. On the beach between Sand Point and Cape Alava, at low tide, you can walk on rocks, seaweed and sand. The landscape and visibility change dramatically between high and low tide, and between a sunny and a foggy, cloudy or rainy day, which is very interesting to observe. There is an abandoned Makah - Ozette Ranger Station just north of Cape Alava which looks like it should be taken away, as it is quite an eyesore, but the nature and views on this trail are breathtaking. A great place to take in many great views of the seastacks and the picturesque Tskawahyah Island, and enjoy a lovely sunset sitting on a log on the beach.

Easy hike on boardwalked path with great views at multiple points. Well-maintained, although the bathrooms at the trail head left something to be desired. :)

This is a beautiful drive traveling to the Cape flattery. There is a good mixture of forest and ocean. If you are traveling to Cape Flattery, go ahead and log this drive as well. It really is a beautiful drive.
