Hike Summary: The Ozette-Cape Alava-Sand Point loop is a shore hike along the Washington coast. The views of the ocean, cliffs, headlands, islands, and sea stacks provide a unique experience. There is little elevation change on this hike so it is relatively easy, and there is a surprising amount of wildlife along the coast. The hike starts and ends at the Ozette Ranger Station and it is a pleasant overnight backpacking trip.
