This beach formed when the Elwha dam was removed. More than 70 acres of new habitat have been created, and tribal members have restored access to sacred sites and revived long-ago cultural traditions. You’ll find some of the most dramatic changes at the mouth of the Elwha River, where wetlands, beaches and the estuary are being rebuilt. Stroll the sandy beach, explore the riverbank, soak up the sun, take in the sounds of waves, and ponder the power of Mother Nature. Walkers, picnickers and surfers will want to check out the new beach at the east end of Freshwater Bay. The protected waters are ideal for kayaks and small boats. A boat launch at the west end of the bay provides the perfect spot to hit the water.

The Marymere Falls Trail is a short hike through wonderful Pacific Northwest scenery from Lake Crescent, through large towering trees, and encompassing incredible river views. It is one of the most popular trails in Olympic National Park. The trail begins by the Storm King Ranger Station and features a nice gentle rise in elevation up to the falls, and a pleasant descent. It's a great family friendly outing in an old growth forest. Lush greenery and beautiful waterways abound on this short trek. The waterfall is breathtaking.

If you look out towards the water you’ll see a strange strip of land in the harbor with cars driving on it. That’s the Spit or Ediz Hook! We love playing in the water and walking along the beach looking for seals! Drive west on Front Street and take a right at the fork. You’ll drive through the paper mill. Keep going until you’re driving on the spit. You can go all the way to the Coast Guard station.

Adventure
Paved walk that leads you by the water and through some thick trees. It’s over 100 miles long—there are several access points in Port Angeles and Sequim—depending on what kind of scenery you want. It’s nice for biking, running and walking.

Beautiful tide pools, a nice sandy beach, WWII bunkers that you can drive through, fire pits and a playground. Drive west on 101 and take a right onto HWY 112 towards Joyce. It’s about a 25 minute drive. Make sure to check the tide schedule for low tide if you want to see the tide pools. Both the beach and tide pools are best at a 2 ft tide or lower (the lower the better!)

Kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, fishing and swimming. The water is a crystal-clear blue/green. We love relaxing on the dock and jumping in when it’s warm enough. The lodge is a fun place to eat and play games. 30 min drive west on HWY 101

Hikes
Located about 90 minutes from Port Angeles, this easy hike ends in a stunning view of Tatoosh Island while standing on the most northwesterly tip of the contiguous lower 48 States. Four observation decks on the Cape Flattery Trail provide spectacular views of the rugged rocks, birds, and jade waters of the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific takes on many hues depending on the weather and cloud cover from steel gray to light pink or yellow at sunset. Watch for gray whales off the Cape and sea lions on Snake Rock just east of Tatoosh Island.

Mount Storm King is the perfect hike if you are looking for a challenge! This route is technical (but well maintained) and hiking boots are highly recommended. The initial section is relatively flat before leading to a large elevation gain through a series of switchbacks. Following this, there is a rope section that can only be traveled by one person at a time— so expect a wait during the summer season and weekends. The last section involves a rock scramble before reaching the summit. The view at the top overlooks Lake Crescent and is incredible! There is an optional side-trip to the popular Marymere Falls if you want to extend your trip.
