The beaches of the Hidden Coast Scenic Byway along Highway 109 offer miles of easily-accessible recreation. Spend the day strolling (or even driving) along the sandy beaches where razor clamming is a popular past-time. Rent a kayak or stand up paddle board (SUP) to explore the many creeks and rivers that empty into the ocean. Or use this region as a base camp for more hiking and cycling into the forests and mountains of the Olympic Peninsula.

The stunning views beckon RVers to one of the many parks like Pacific Beach State Park right next to the beach dunes. Or book a vacation rental like those in the beautiful planned seaside community of Seabrook. Here you’ll find everything needed for a weekend getaway including shops, restaurants, a Bigfoot Brewfest (in October), and a Saturday Farmer’s Market. And of course, the beach is never far away for surfing and biking or just relaxing with a soaring kite.

Be sure to check out the Museum of the North Beach in Moclips and try the famous clam chowder at the nearby Ocean Crest Resort. Need more culinary delights? The Chocolate on the Beach Festival held late February offers 13 miles of chocolatey events and a unique way to experience the byway. For birders, the Griffiths-Priday State Park is a hidden gem located at the mouths of Conner Creek and the Copalis River.
