Willapa National Wildlife Refuge - Leadbetter Point

Willapa National Wildlife Refuge - Leadbetter Point Professional Review and Guide

"Hike through thick maritime forest and across the state’s largest coastal dune complex to the wildest beach south of the Olympic wilderness coast. Then walk along the lonely surf all the way to the tip of Leadbetter Point. Undeveloped and lacking jetties, Leadbetter’s dunes, sandbars, and coastline are constantly shifting as nature intended.

The surrounding dunes are home to nesting threatened snowy plovers (one of only three locations in Washington). Beginning in March, this small wading bird builds its well-camouflaged nest on dry sand in the upper beach and dune areas. Stay on the trail. Dogs prohibited."
