This is part of the September 19-20 North Olympic Coast Car Camp, involving hiking Rialto Beach on Saturday, camping Saturday night at Mora Campground and hiking Second Beach on Sunday.  Registration for the car camp is by registering for both the Saturday Rialto Beach hike and the Sunday Second Beach hike.  Leader permission is required to assure that anyone registering for one of the hikes also registers for the other one and will camp Saturday night at Mora Campground.

We will drive from Mora Campground to the Second Beach trailhead parking lot, hike the .7 mile to Second Beach, observe marine life near the north end of the beach at low tide and then hike to the south end of the beach and back.  Then we hike back to the trailhead parking lot.  On the drive home we will have the option for a lunch stop at the Hungry Bear Cafe on US 101 in Beaver, WA.
