Hiking trails around Leadbetter Point are located both in Leadbetter Point State Park and in the Leadbetter Point unit of the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. At least one trail is so close to the edge that signs indicating the border crossing are encountered several times in a very short distance.
While I have already put a map of the area elsewhere, I am also including a somewhat more detailed map of the trails with this tip. The trail map system is well marked, and you will find these trail signs and maps at all major trail intersections inside the Wildlife Refuge. If you are at all confused by what direction you want to go, note that at the top of the signs there are arrows that point to the direction of the named trail.
There are two toilet facilities: one at the parking area at the entrance to the wildlife refuge, and another at the trailhead in the state park itself, at the far south end of the trails.
There are several types of ecosystems that you will encouter on the trail systems in a very short distance. This includes forest, scrub forest transitioning to tidal grasslands, ocean beach, and sheltered bay beach and grasslands.
While much of the obvious wildlife here are birds, there are other animals here as well.
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE pay close attention to the fact that some of the areas of the Wildlife Refuge are reserved only for nesting birds and other wildlife. Please stay out of these areas and don't distrurb them, as some of these birds have become very rare.
