  • Easy
  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)
  • Mileage: 9.4 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 350 ft

TBD

This is an easy 9.4 mile loop overnight with just 350 ft in elevation gain. The trail follows the Cape Alava and Sand Point Trails. You'll hike on a boardwalk through ancient forests to and from the ocean, with a walk along an Olympic Coast beach in between.

These field trips are designed to give B3 students the opportunity to try out gear and new skills with only fellow B3 students on an easy to moderate overnight backpack with an experienced mentor.  While this trip can count toward your B3 graduation requirement, they are not meant to be your primary backpack trips to that requirement - many more backpack trips will be scheduled through the season for you to join and complete your 3 required trips.
