Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge
It is a 7-mile round trip to the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge from the Olympic Discovery Trail. The Dungeness Recreation Area is open for seasonal camping and has many multiple use trails. At the refuge, at the end of the entrance road, there is a flush toilet and benches for picnics. There is a small fee per family to hike on the spit. Pets are not allowed on the spit, and collecting of any kind is prohibited although you are welcome to remove any trash you find on the beach.
If you choose to walk to the lighthouse [5.5 miles each way], be sure to check the tide tables. It can be hard to walk to the lighthouse at high tide! You can access tide tables, a web cam, and information about being a lighthouse keeper for a week at the New Dungeness Lighthouse. Essential items to carry with you on a walk to the lighthouse include layered clothing, water, camera, and binoculars.
