Leadbetter Point State Park is located at the north end of the Long Beach peninsula. We started our hike at the north parking lot and did a counter clockwise loop. The trail heads north and in a few minutes, emerges on the shore of Willapa Bay.
The trail follows the shoreline for a long half mile, then heads across the point to the ocean. The forested section had many interesting mushrooms. After coming across a large pile of fresh bear scat , Barb thought it would be good idea if I took point .
It is 1 1/4 miles across the point to the ocean. At the coast we took a lunch break, enjoying the views and crashing waves.
Next, we hiked south along the coast about 3/4 miles to the trail that heads back to parking lot.
Trip Stats: 4 miles and no elevation gain.
A short video of the noisy shore birds
After the hike we drove through Oysterville to look at some of the historic buildings.
I like the mushroom pictures and the noisy shore birds video

Lovely place, there for the first time last spring. Water in the woods kept us from making it all the way across from east to west. Still, can't wait to get back. Thanks for sharing the pics and report!
That is such a neat area. I've never made it through the woods all the way to the beach, due to various combinations of water and mosquitoes, but we've roamed the interesting beaches often. thanks for the TR.
