Cape Alava and Sand Point Wilderness Trails Rehabilitation Civic Engagement

Olympic National Park is seeking your input on the proposed rehabilitation of the Cape Alava and Sand Point trails located within the park's Ozette area. The Cape Alava and Sand Point trails access each end of a 3-mile section of beach creating a 9-mile triangular wilderness hike, starting from the Lake Ozette Trailhead. Ozette is the busiest trailhead for overnight wilderness use in the park. Approximately 9,500 linear feet (70 percent) of the total 13,533 feet of boardwalk on the Cape Alava and Sand Point trails is in poor condition.
