The Port Angeles Waterfront Trail continues out to near the end of Ediz Hook. It passes by massive logging yards and through an immense paper mill before continuing along the cove side beach. Large boulders stabilize current and tidal erosion on the opposite side of the narrow spit. A colony of feral cats lives in the rocks. The trail is adjacent to a road out to the Coast Guard Air Station at the end of Ediz Hook. Ample parking and restrooms are available near the entrance to the base.
Ediz Hook is very different from the Dungeness Spit in Sequim, although created by similar natural phenomena. That five-mile sand mass is an undeveloped wildlife refuge, with access limited to hiking.
