Freshwater Bay to the Salt Creek Recreational Area

Freshwater Bay to the Salt Creek Recreational Area Professional Review and Guide

"Here is a taste of Washington’s outer coast just a few miles west of Port Angeles. Swells penetrating the Strait of Juan de Fuca are still large enough to make challenging surf on the area’s beaches and pack enough power to bore a double sea arch along this route.

Depending on the swell size, landings are possible on many tiny gravel beaches along the way that are inaccessible from the cliffs above. Preservation of the uplands as the Department of Natural Resources’ Striped Peak Recreation Area makes this one of the wildest stretches along the Strait of Juan de Fuca coast close to Port Angeles. The routes include short day trips, full day trip, or even an overnight."
