#1 - Dungeness Spit Trail

Length: 10.2 mi • Est. 4 h 12 m
Note: Lighthouse is currently CLOSED but grounds, restrooms, and picnic tables are still open. Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge provides a great place to check out waterfowl and seabirds on the coast. First things first: this is an epically long hike on sand. It doesn't appear to be so bad from the start, but the spit is deceptively long. That said, it's a great way to spend a nice day. The nice part is that you can turn back at any point, there are no monumental landmarks along the way that you'll miss if you don't make the end. That doesn't mean there is nothing to see, however. The beach is a combination of fine sand and large cobbles - with enough variation in color and composition to keep it interesting. There are plenty of cairns constructed, seemingly, just for the sake of building cairns. The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge and Dungeness Bay provide a sheltered area for thousands of seabirds and waterfowl, be sure to bring your guidebook to identify them. And, as always, the flotsam of the Pacific Ocean is washed up onshore - including unique beach glass and fishing floats among the ubiquitous plastic shards.Show more

Please note the trail used to continue past the marked route on the map. You will come across signs telling you not to continue. It is washed out, down a ravine with a washed out bridge, and very dangerous. Do not cross sign indicating the end of the trail.Show more

Steep alternate route to Mt. Townsend summit. There is very little water access so it is wise to carry extra. Crosses Sleepy Hollow watershed and Dirty Face Ridge. Views of Mt. Townsend, Mt. Buckhorn, and Iron Mountain. Distance views of Puget Sound and Mt. Baker in the Cascade horizon.Show more
