Dungeness Spit Trail

OutAndBack • 11 mi • 10 ft

No need to head all the way to the Pacific if it’s a good beach hike you seek. One of Washington’s best saltwater strolls is along its “north coast,” the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Actually, this hike heads directly into the strait on the longest coastal spit in the continental United States. A narrow strip of sand, dune, and beached logs, the Dungeness Spit protrudes over 5 miles straight into the strait. Prone to breaching during storms, the spit is also resilient and well-established—and well-hiked and loved by those who explore it.
