Great hike for the three grandkids, one age 4. They loved playing in the sand and finding pretty rocks.

This is a truly special place, with something to please most anyone - from the views of the Strait with passing ships to otters in the water below, sunrises and sunsets, wind and waves and good walks or vigorous hiking. You can't go wrong with a visit to this spot.

Go during a strong west wind, even during a storm, if you can - fabulous surf! Calm sunny days are great for walking for miles.

The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is a great place to hike, and see the natural unspoiled coastline of the Olympic Peninsula. It is a wonderful place to take a family,or just see it yourself. I would recommended it to anyone that loves being in nature.

The name alone makes this place fun. We had such a great time as family hiking down to The Spit and then the long walk along the surf. Great family time. One key thing to remember is the tide. Make sure you check the tide tables before going. If the tide comes in you might have a tough time getting... More

Based around the longest natural sand spit in the world, The Spit is an amazingly accessible resource for those who would like to see the ocean beach scene with out having to go 80 miles more to get to the "Big" ocean. If you plan to walk to the light house at the end of the Spit, always make sure... More

My wife and I spent an afternoon at Dungeness NWR. It's only $3 per person and well worth it. The spit is a great walk and the views are fantastic.
