Threemile Lake North Trail #1338
This 3.3 mile (one way) trail begins in an old conifer forest and ends at the beach. The trail provides vistas of freshwater lakes, wet areas within the forest and ocean waves. The trail wanders through a spruce forest with substantial tree size, stops at the serene Threemile Lake and ends at the ocean beach.
You can combine Threemile Lake Trails and Tahkenitch Dunes Trail #1353 into an extended single loop trail of 6.5 miles.
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.
