“This is a short and easy hike to the outlet of Hoh River at the magestic Pacific Coast.”— Megan W
Family Friendly Kids will enjoy poking around on the beach and the short approach makes this trail a favorite. Looking for seals and eagles will also keep the whole family engaged.
Cover mostly level ground through coastal wetlands. Arrive at the beach and clamber around logs and driftwood to the shore. Views are great up and down the coast with Destruction Island prominent to the south. A trail continues north up the coastline but the Oil City Trail as described here is an out-and-back from the parking lot to the beach.
