Trail 4 has got to be my favorite place to be on the planet. I have literally gone there every year for the past 64 years, and it never, ever gets old. There are fascinating tide pools all over the rock formations to the far right of the foot of the trail. Get up on the rocks and climb all over them - check out the myriad of sea anemone and starfish. Climb far enough to look out over the edge and you might get lucky enough to watch a transient Orca whale feeding on seals! I have so many memories of this whole area growing up. We used to camp there when I was a kid, and then I took my kids there when I became a parent. It's now THE most memorable place they've ever spent time with family, or with the dozens of friends they've introduced Kalaloch to as young adults. . . (followed closely by Mexico, Hawaii, and the AlCan Highway). Just go see it!

Beach Number Four was recommended to us by a friendly Ranger lady at the Quinault Lake Drive (Reviewed by me separately) Ranger Station. It was a great tip!! The access to the beach is down a path with stairs which is pretty in itself. At the bottom of the path there is a pretty little bridge made of driftwood. From the bridge you step down over some rocks and just stroll along the beach. There is lots to see - Beautiful driftwood pieces and fascinating rock formations. The sea was a little rough when we were there, making the experience even better. Beautiful Beach!! Great Walk!!

I love this Trail best of all on the Kalaloch beaches. The ocean vistas are amazing. There is limited parking on Highway 101 but it’s not a busy trail so I’ve always managed to park. What I love on the trail are the burl Sitka trees and they are especially amazing. Mushrooms everywhere in October. Look for them, you can’t miss them!

We were really looking forward to the tide pools but saw none. Apparently ther has been some beach erosion and just getting on the beach is an adventure. The trail has maybe 100 stairs down to a platform, then you have to climb down some hazardous rocks then you see no tide pools. Spend your time at Ruby or Rialto beach instead, at least this year. Ask at the ranger station what to expect.

We didn't know what to expect at Beach 4, but we were blown away. The trail down to the beach is short but pretty. When you near the beach, you will be greeted with a funky driftwood bridge that leaves you atop a large rock field. The rocks are amazing and makes you wish you had a geologist with you. After you climb down off the rocks, there are fascinating rocks near the tide line to the north. We had fun climbing all over these, trying to locate Sea Stars. I felt like we were in a big playground!
