Lois Kellar's New Itinerary

Port Williams Beach Is a Hidden Gem

Port Williams is a great beach for families, lovers, birdwatchers, dog lovers and kayakers. Usually, overlooked, it is seldom busy except for the birds. Be sure to keep an eye out for an elk herd along the way.

Port Williams official name is Marlyn Nelson County Park at Port Williams. This 1-acre gem was deeded to the Clallam County Parks in 1976. The state owns tidelands to the north that link with 1,000 feet of County tidelands ending at the privately-owned Graysmarsh Farm property.

The Olympic Peninsula Waterfall Trail

A Magical Misty Tour
A delightful way to explore the Olympic Peninsula, the Waterfall Trail offers year-round adventure and dramatic beauty. From the cliffs of Cape Flattery, to the glacial fjord of the Hood Canal to the Enchanted Valley of the Quinault Rainforest, waterfalls of all sizes and shapes abound! Some are easy walks on fores trails, others reached via paved, wheel-chair accessible paths, still more are in the backcountry of Olympic National Park. Two falls can only be reached by boat.
