Sekiu Trail

Also known as "One-Mile Beach," this straight, relatively level saltwater beach trail connects beautiful, rugged slate caves at the east and Eagle Point two miles to the west. Boaters fish near the trail, unaware of the old abandoned railroad grade that runs the length of the hillside above. The flat and forested trail, an easy walk from Sekiu resorts, provides access to the solitude of sand and surf. Vistas from the trail stretch across the Strait of Juan de Fuca to Vancouver Island.

Depending upon the time of year and movements of the wind and tide, an explorer with a good pair of binoculars can discover gray whales, sea lions, or a furry cork (called a sea otter) just off the beach. Eagles, osprey, loons and puffins are also regular visitors.

Start your hike from the north end of Sekiu at the Three Sisters rock formation and continue up the hill following the old railroad grade to the northwest. Half-Mile Beach offers curious hikers a number of caves and wonderful tide pools atop high rocks at low tide to explore. One-Mile Beach is surrounded by sea grass and perfect for strolling, beach combing, bird watching and picnicking. At low tide, you can walk from One-Mile Beach to Eagle Point.
