Ruby Beach

Ruby Beach Professional Review and Guide

"Think of Ruby Beach to be Olympic wilderness coast lite. You’ll get the same great wilderness taste as Cape Alava, Shi Shi Beach, and Third Beach, but for a lot less effort. Walk a mere 0.25 mile, through salt-sprayed maritime forest to the beach. Then hike a lonely stretch of coastline all the way to the mouth of the Hoh River.

But if the tide is low and your ambitions are high, consider hiking north for nearly 3 miles to the mouth of the Hoh River. Check your tide chart. You’ll need a low tide to rock hop across Cedar Creek and safely round the small headland just north of it."
