Explore a cool lush ravine that leads to a remote beach on the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Walk along the shore under towering bluffs to a spit littered with drift logs and watched over by a battalion of eagles. Take in clear views of Protection Island, a bird sanctuary at the mouth of Puget Sound, difficult to see from most other shoreline points. Welcome to the Miller Peninsula, destined to become Washington’s next grand state park.

This trail was very easy, but littered with bugs and mud. The day was fairly clear; clouds, no rain, dapples of sunshine, but not incredible alluring. We had lunch on the beach and enjoyed the view. Overall, it was not my favorite trail.
