Olympic National Park protects 73 gorgeous and spectacular miles of wilderness coastline; the longest stretch of undeveloped oceanfront in the Lower 48 States. No two miles are similar as each beach, tide flat, head and cove have their own stunning character. You can hike for miles and never get the feeling of déjà vu.
When we were choosing which trips to incorporate into Scenic Boy Adventures, the Olympic coast was the first place we knew people would love to experience. This area is about as close as one can get to seeing land as early explores and native peoples did centuries ago. There are no roads, no structures, and no signs of modern civilization for miles (aside from minimal Park Service markers).
A Picturesque boardwalk, slowly being consumed by moss and ferns, welcomes the adventurous traveler as he makes his way toward the pristine sandy beaches of the Ozette Triangle.
While walking along the coastline there are more signs of animals life than there are of other hikers. We came across a set of sea otter tracks that made a b-line from the water to the piles of driftwood at the edge of the forest. No doubt a mother and her new pups retuning from a swimming lesson.
We discovered two beaches with the most amazing camp spots tucked under a cave of trees. With creeks running through both and enough room for 10 or so granola gays, these sites are absolutely perfect for adventure seekers ready to explore the Olympic coast. *We intentionally left these campsites out of the video as to keep the delightful charm a special experience for those who join us this summer. :)
The next time we will be on the Ozette Triangle will be on July 8th – 10th, when we host the very first Scenic Boy Adventure.
