Kalaloch is one of the most visited areas of Olympic National Park. Kalaloch and Ruby Beach are located on the southwest coast of the Olympic Peninsula. They are accessible directly off of Highway 101 (directions).
General information about the Kalaloch area, facilities, trails, camping, and regulations can be found on the Kalaloch brochure.
Kalaloch is a great place for bird watching. Western gulls, bald eagles, and other coastal birds can be spotted nesting and feeding along the southern coast. Beach 4 is an excellent location to tidepool looking for seastars, and anemones of various colors can be seen at low tiedes. When hiking the coast, always check the tides (current charts available at the Kalaloch Information Station). Certain areas may become impassable during high tides and overland trails must be used.
