As Hwy. 101 hugs Willapa Bay, cross the Naselle River and look for the tiny pull-out on the left, 1.6 miles before the boat launch at the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. Park, walk around the gate and ascend the old logging road keeping an eye out for discreet signs with arrows pointing the way to magnificent specimens of Western red cedar, Sitka spruce, and Western hemlock. Keep an ear out, too, as this is critical habitat for marbled murrelets and spotted owls. Though short in length, the .57-mile trail is worth the stop. Tip: Allow yourself extra time to spend time with these ancient giants.
