The spit is a wonderful walk if you've got a few (or several) hours but there are also great walks the other direction along the bluffs. Have seen Eagles up close, otters, partridges, deer and lots of birds. You could easily see whales during the season -- just look for a cluster of boats.

Enjoyed the hike through the forest, then ended up on the beach. You could hike all the way to the lighthouse. Nice park.

The hike over the bridge was fun for the kids, and the gift store and birds inside were cool to look at.

Just outside of Sequim. There are several places you can stop, but the nature trail, with signs, etc., is at the end of the road.

The Refuge was a short drive from where we are staying. Easy to access and the short walk from the car park to the beach through the woods was very gentle. The views of the beach and the sand spit were stunning and once on the beach the amount of drift wood was incredible. A beautiful walk with plenty of... More

The refuge is worth visiting. You can spend hours walking the spit or just take a short hike to the overlooks. A beautiful refuge project.

Just go walk, you don't have to make to the Lighthouse, if you do, it's a big bonus but do remember the adage about the journey not the destination. Breathe. Listen, you can even close your eyes while walking.

Miles of beach covered with soft golden, jade green, pale pink, and charcoal stones polished for hundreds of years by the rhythmic waves splashing on the shore. The brisk salty sea breeze blowing, with the resounding cawing of sea birds ringing in the air as flocks of birds land on the ocean for a feeding frenzy. Ropes of tangled seaweed... More
