Description

Second Beach is one of the easiest beaches to hike to in Olympic National Park--only a 0.7 mile hike from the parking lot--but also one of the most spectacular. During the summer, the entire length of the beach can have campsites set up every 50 feet. At low tide, the best tidepools are found around the two large islands off the beach.

Short Hike: 0.7 miles along the Second Beach Trail.

Family Friendly: The tidepools would be great for kids.
