Olympic National Park, Washington
An approximate 1.4 mile trail leading through a beautiful coastal forest gets you to this small beach, located in the central coastal area of Olympic National Park. And small though it may be, it's big in magnificent scenery. You can view sea stacks, marine mammals, ocean birds and bald eagle along this primitive beach. The trail rail is easy, but at the end you'll find a big pile of driftwood to walk and crawl over to reach the beach. It's easier than it looks and is so worth the effort. Bonus: the tree-topped headland to the south features a marvelous waterfall falling into the ocean.
