First of all, get a tide table and time the hike so that you are hiking the beach portion around low tide. My husband and I decided to hike the beach from south to north. The Sand Point Trail was mostly boardwalk, relatively flat, and well-maintained. It was a nice easy hike through the forest, and at the end opened... More

It is an easy 3 mi. to the beach which is spectacular. You can hear seals from the nearby islands. The return loop is not very well marked and we had difficulty finding it.

The 7/8 hours loop made by two forest trails and one fatiguing beach one (mind the tide time!!! Rangers give free tables) is definitely worth a trip to Ozette

this is a loop hike that has two trails starting at same place and leading to the beach where one can usually find dear resting or some pretty loud seals. one of the best ranger station can be found at the start of the trail and people should get advice on the tide before heading out. Most of the trail... More

We would go every year since I was 3. Best childhood memories ever. I am 31 now and taking my 3 year old, and she loves it. Plan ahead if you go in the summer. 2 totally different experiences depending on what hike you do. I wouldn't do the loop until you know your kids are ready. It's 9 miles... More

This was probably the best day hike I have ever taken. Tide was out & we sat there for hours listening to the seals, watching the bald eagles & listening to the waves. The 3 mile walk on the beach was great exercise & fun.

We loved this hike the last week of May, even though it was raining and we did have a tense moment... We met a guy in the parking lot that didn't do the full loop, but he recommended what direction to go so that the wind would be at our back while on the beach. This was GREAT advice, so... More

Started the trip at Cape Alava first. The boardwalk was in very good shape (thank you NPS), only one small mud pit on the path. Tskawahyah Island is dramatic and accessible. North of the island the breakers roll into a lovely sandy bay. Sea anemones abound on the rocks. Sand Point was where sea lions could be heard barking that... More

Hiked the Sandy Point trial with my DH, 7 and 9 year olds. Easy trail. Drizzled the whole way, so the boardwalk was super slippery. However, only two other people on the trail and saw three bald eagles at the point. We had the beach to ourselves. Next time, we plan to hike the loop with Cape Alava. We've hiked... More

On a clear weekend the stars and sunset are unbeatable. Loop is 9 miles, in 3 mile segments. We camped at Cape Alava, where you can build beach fires. The offshore sea lion colony is a bit loud, but their barking is continuous so it just starts to blend with the other noises. We hiked the Sandpoint trail first and... More
