Sequim WA, Dungeness Spit
The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge
The Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge located on the northern coast of the Olympic Peninsula near Sequim, WA was established in 1915 by President Woodrow Wilson by Executive Order as a refuge, preserve, and breeding ground for native birds. When visiting the Dungeness National Wildlife Refuge many people take the 10 mile round trip hike (4-6 hours) along the Dungeness Spit to the New Dungeness Light Station. The Dungeness Spit is the longest Natural sand spit in the United States. The lighthouse is run by The New Dungeness Lighthouse Organization and daily tours are available. Make sure to check the Tide Chart before starting on your hike. Our Lost Mountain Lodge Chef can prepare you a boxed brunch to take with you for the day. Ask about it when making your reservation.
