Dungeness Spit - 15 Minutes	 from Sea Cliff Gardens
Hurrican Ridge

Reasons to go:

  • To see the world’s longest natural sand spit, where ambitious walkers hike through five miles of sand to reach the lighthouse and visitor center (and trudge through five miles of sand to return), and less energetic visitors stroll through trails along the coastline and venture a short walk onto the Spit
  • A terrific bird-watching spot

Reasons to go:

  • The railroad bridge, now a boardwalk, was built in 1915. This path is now a part of the paved Olympic Discovery Trail. It’s a terrific place to begin a scenic walk, run, or bike ride.
  • A great winter spot to view bald eagles, when the salmon are in the Dungeness River below.
  • The Dungeness River Audubon Center displays many touchable specimens of local birds and wildlife, including black bear, cougar and lynx.
