So pretty! Do not use GPS!! Get your hands on the official Waterfall Trail brochure for good directions to all the falls on the Peninsula.

If you read the books or watched the movies, a visit to Forks is a must. They have played up the Twilight thing and you can even see a few local places from the stories. Keep in mind the movies were not filmed in Forks so the actual sets are not here, but if you actually read the books and appreciated the descriptions you will feel the magic when here. The real magic of Forks is in its central location to many other sights and places including La Push and Kalaloch. If you are simply looking to take a nerdy picture on the sets of Twilight do some research first. This place is beautiful, and affordable!

Its cool, but not a make or break for a trip. Kind of just a weird side trip. We only went for it since we were camping at Kalaloch. If you are not camping there, they do have a day use/picnic area so you do not have to walk from the lodge area if you aren't staying there.

Not the best tide pools I have seen on the Olympic Peninsula, but still very cool. The hike down to the beach from the parking area was only 325 steps for me. Not much to see on the beach itself but colorful rocks, hardly any shells. The view of Destruction Island is pretty!

Great beach. Lots of logs to cross to get to the water, and a stream that can be quite large to cross if you want to wander north but it is all well worth it!

This hike is part of a larger 9.2 mile loop, and it is a MUST. The 3.1 miles from the Ranger Station to Cape Alava is peaceful and easy, most of the path (NOT ALL) is on boardwalk. There are lots of steps so it is not advised for strollers/wheelchairs by any means. Once you get to the Cape you can wander in the tide pools at low tide. From there you can venture south along the beach for 3 miles. There are 2 headlands which require an overland crossing at high tide, and that entails using ropes to climb steep and muddy bluffs (its fun!) Once you reach the south point in the loop (called Sandpoint) you can camp, if you have a permit, and if you climb the grassy knoll on the point you can get an almost 360 degree view of the beaches. Its breathtaking. The 3 mile walk back to the Ranger Station from Sandpoint is also mostly boardwalk and easy. Do this hike!

Not federally owned so the prices are higher. Pretty cool place though. There is a Subway to eat at. The movie and tour are great, and the exhibits are fun and informative. Its worth the price if you are into space, geology, or big holes.
