If you live south of Seattle, this is a short, easy trip, ideal for those with limited saltwater experience, or for families. Distances between stopovers are not long, and there are plenty of shore attractions and beaches with warm water for wading and swimming during the summer months.
The route can be altered or shortened if weather is inclement. Camping is available at Kopachuck State Park or the Cascadia Marine Trail site located there. The beach is expansive at low tide and is known for ample sand dollars.
