This 3-day relaxed coastal trip is perfect for kids, families, and anyone who wants more time lounging, exploring tidal pools, and relaxing. This trip starts on the Makah Reservation in the furthest northwest corner of the continental US. We’ll weave our way through coastal forests until we reach the beach, and then traverse southward to the Point of Arches, a dramatic promontory carved by waves. Two nights camping at the Point of Arches will give us ample time to explore and enjoy the ocean, while driftwood fires keep us warm at night.
