Tahkenitch Dunes Trail #1353

  

Trail goes through a mile of conifer forest, opening onto the dunes and views of the ocean. The trail then re-enters onto a smaller stand of shore pine and ends at the ocean.

Always use caution on the beach. Watch for sneaker waves, know the tide schedule and stay away from logs in the surf or on wet sand. Look out for deep water and strong currents.
