Went to visit this area because it was homesteaded by some ancestors. What a lovely old growth forest and beautiful setting.

I didn't go to the end of the Dungeness Spit, but the Trail itself through the forest to the beginning of the Spit is tremendous. Easy walking. Beautiful trees and ferns.

We couldn’t do as much walking as we wanted to do the previous storms rolling of the logs and the high tides. Regardless we enjoyed our time and the area is beautiful.

Plan it around low tides and give yourself plenty of time. A long walk with abundant sites and a beautiful "LightHouse" near the end.

A regular stop for us. We go to watch the sunsets from the bluffs & occasionally to walk down to the spit. Always 'Good'.

I have seen some people who do bike the trail to the spit I don't think it would be advisable. The trail is not that long and is frequented by may people. Also that last hill down to the shore is rather steep and a bike... More

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