Leadbetter Point State Park

Dune Forest Loop- A great loop for any time of the year whether you are looking to explore the tranquil beach forests or bird-dense Willapa Bay shoreline on the wild northern tip of the Long Beach Peninsula. Over 6 miles of trail traverse 1200-acre Leadbetter Point State Park and offer access to both the Pacific and the adjacent Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. While most hikers may be enticed to head directly to Leadbetter Point’s wide, sandy ocean beach, the area’s real charm lies within its diverse bay and forest ecosystems.  More Info.
