New Dungeness Lighthouse

If you are looking for some exercise while in the Sequim area, consider taking the 5 1/2 mile (one-way) walk out to the New Dungeness Light Station! The lighthouse and Keeper's quarters are located near the end of the Dungeness Spit, which is a National Wildlife Refuge. Access to the spit is from the Dungeness County Park at the end of Voice of America Road. There is a $3 entrance fee for a group of 4 adults (children under 16 are free) to enter the Refuge. Once out at the Light Station you can enjoy a picnic, use the public restroom, get a drink of artesian well water, and of course receive a free guided tour of the lighthouse tower! Your tour guides will be members of the New Dungeness Light Station Association who are spending a week at a time as Lighthouse Keepers. Be sure to ask them about their experiences out at the end of the spit.

Walkers should check the tides first, before attempting the hike.

Allow about 5 hours for the round trip walk and visit, and be sure to take water and a picnic lunch or snack.
