What a beautiful place! We started out along the dunes, then walked through a forested area and down to the beach and Dungeness Spit. Lots of rocks and beautiful weathered logs. Not too strenuous and plenty of viewpoints and overlooks.

Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge is a fun family experience. Sequim is one of the sunniest places in WA. State, so a visit to this city offers quite predictable weather. Rain or shine, however, everyone can enjoy all the animals in this park that are well-cared...More

Fun walk along the shore with driftwood and rocks at low tide. Saw a bald eagle and many shore birds. A clear day provided a nice view of the mountains to the west.

I've been returning to Sequim WA for years. It's one of my favorite Washington state cities. The rainfall is less there than in adjoining areas due to the rain shadow effect dumping rain in the mountains first. It's now become a Lilac haven for tourists....More

Dogs are not allowed on the trail, unfortunately. I think they are allowed in the camp and picnic areas.
