     entertainment is purely DIY, a longish drive and little attempt to capitalise on the natural beauty.

La Push Things to Do

  • First Beach

    On many maps, you wouldn't find "First Beach" anywhere, though it does exist, right inside the La Push townsite. Driving into the Indian Reservation, you reach this beach that although is not as wild as the others and shows human prescene, is still beautiful. We wanted to see a sunset while we were there, but dense fog prevented us. Still, it was a...

  • Hole in the Wall Trail

    This 3-mile round trip "trail" leads to a hole in a wall. It follows the beach; there's no defined trail; and considering what beaches are made of, its slow-going on this trail. The hole itself isn't anything spectacular, but the seastacks on the way are very beautiful. Though personally, I sort of prefer Second Beach over this trail, since Second...

  • Rialto Beach

    Rialto Beach can be accessed from La Push by driving north to the Mora Campground. This beach offers seastacks and good views. The main reason to visit Rialto Beach is probably to hike to Hole-in-the-Wall, but the beach itself is beautiful, and a nice place to be. It's easy to spend an hour or so here.

  • Second Beach

    This is a nice beach trail that starts from the La Push Road and leads 1.4-miles round trip to Second Beach. The trail starts off and spends most of its time passing through typical Northwest rain forest, then descends to the beach, which you can easily access after crossing a horrible pile of driftwood. There is a natural hole in the wall there,...

  • The Boats -

    LaPush is a small town, mainly Native American if I'm not mistaken. Tourism is a big source of income for them, although there honestly isn't much to see besides the ocean views. LaPush is definitely a place for simply relaxing and enjoying the water. Not too far from the lodging area is a dock with boats inside. I was told that on occasion one can...

  • The sunset alone is worth the drive -

    build a bonfire on the beach, and then hang out until the sun goes completely down. it's just magical.

    Kids have no trouble keeping busy here. With an infinite supply of rocks and sand and logs, a visit to Second Beach is one long construction project.

  • tidepool critters

    The tidepool life at La Push is pretty amazing if you can get out to Crying Lady rock. This will depend on how low the tide is and where the sand is being deposited in any given season. In late August of 2003, waves out of the North had left a dry path out to the rock at even middling low tides.

  • driftwood

    As soon as you arrive you become aware that the forests of the Olympic Peninsula are massive. Driftwood piles up to ten feet deep line the Northern section of the beach. For some they are an impediment but for children they are a joy. And your supply of firewood is very handy if it's dry.
