Kalaloch Beaches

Scenic ocean shores with easy access are found in the Kalaloch (pronounced clay-lock) area, 15 miles south of the Rain Forest Road on Hwy 101. Beach Trail 4 is a pebble beach with dramatic surf (beware of the strong undertow), tidal pools and is a popular place to dip for smelt (schools of small fish that spawn in the surf in warm, calm weather and can be caught with a large net). Picturesque Ruby Beach with a meandering creek, dramatic sea stacks, and drift logs is named for its sometimes garnet-colored sand. A gold mining operation was located here in the early 1900’s. The Rain Forest Country Adventures Map (see PDF file below to download) shows the beaches, attractions and services in the Hoh Rain Forest and Kalaloch areas including the world’s largest Western Red Cedar off Hwy 101.**
