You can stroll along the bluff and look down or hike down to the Dungeness Spit and out to the light house. Volunteers are available in the parking lot with info.

Easy 2.5 mile walk loop with views of the straight, the spit and through the meadow. Mornings are the best time to go as it is quiet and fewer people on the trail. You can increase the mileage by hiking down to the spit and if the tide is low and you are ambitious, hike out to the lighthouse 5... More

The refuge is great! The short hike down the beach is definitely worth the view at the bottom. The day we were there was clear and the lighthouse was directly under snowy Mt. Baker. Couldn't have been more beautiful!

Take a short shady walk to the beach. Stop and play or continue to walk or jog down the narrow peninsula approximately 5 miles to the lighthouse. You'll see driftwood, rolling waves, distant mountains, wildlife, and more!

Traveling through and wanted to stop here and hoped to see some birds. We happened to be here the same weekend as the lavender festival, and maybe for that reason, it was VERY crowded. Looking for a parking spot took a great deal of time. Once we were parked, the employees were very helpful and how long the walk was... More

This is such a lovely and unusual place for a nice walk that we go here every time we visit Sequim. And it is good in most every kind of weather, with the mood changing with sun and wind and the amount of waves. Be sure to look for birds and for ships in the channel as you walk along!

We were determined to make it to the end, we made it to the light house which is worth the hike, you can go up in the lighthouse and check out the view, the yard has picnic tables.They had the last half mile closed to the public...

My daughter and I enjoyed a long hike along the sand spit. It was incredibly scenic. Visitors should be aware of the tide! High tide can be a bit challenging to walk all the way to the lighthouse. However, it is totally doable if you are not pressed for time because it is over five miles out there and five... More
