Once an island, now a spit, Damon Point keeps growing thanks to sand accretion (the opposite of erosion). Hike around this protruding land mass for sweeping views that include Mount Rainier and the snowy Olympic Mountains. Observe scores of shorebirds (including endangered snowy plovers), harbor seals, and sometimes in winter, snowy owls. Best of all, enjoy over 4 miles of vehicle-free beaches, best hiked at low tide. Dogs permitted on-leash on the western 0.5 mile of beach near trailhead. Interior of point closed Mar 1–Sept 15 to protect threatened nesting streaked horned larks and snowy plovers.
