Dungeness Spit Trail

Dungeness Spit Trail Professional Review and Guide

"One of the longest natural sandspits in the United States, Dungeness Spit thrusts out into the Strait of Juan de Fuca. A short descent through forest to the beach leads to its base.

The spit is accessible to families at any time of the year; it also attracts harbor seals, killer whales, and bald eagles. The spit reaches far out in the strait and then curves inward like a gigantic arm, with a lighthouse in its “hand.” Reaching the lighthouse requires a 5-mile walk, but there’s plenty of fun along the way and no need to go more than 1 or 2 miles."

My wife and I took our two boys (3 & 5) along with grandpa to this trail in early summer. Don't get me wrong, it's a lovely and unique place. The only reason it doesn't get 4 stars is that we went on a cool, windy day and it's not a 4-star experience in those conditions. 5-star hikes are rare for me and this wouldn't rate even on a sunny, calm day (I'm more of a high mountain person than an ocean person).
