You love a coastal sunset while your pup loves the smell of ripe seaweed, and Olympic National Park is the perfect travel destination for you both. The park is surrounded by bays and inlets to the east and offers unmediated access to the Pacific Ocean to the west. The diversity of the park’s coastline can be enjoyed in any season—in spring, when wildflowers bloom, in summer, when the water warms up, in winter, to spot migrating whales, and in fall, to view the changing leaves. Nature’s vernal canvas can be enjoyed on a number of excellent coastal hikes through the park, including the picturesque Shi Shi Beach Hike and the Dungeness Spit Trail, which ends at a historic lighthouse. For the fitness-oriented, the trail from Hoh River to Third Beach has its intrepid two- and four-legged hikers climbing through upland rainforest and rocky beach. For an unmediated experience of Washington State’s vernal beauty, book a pet-friendly beachfront cabin or tree house by the bay near Olympic National Park.
