“If your goal is to find colorful starfish and anemone, this is the place during low tide!”— Michelle Kras
The trailhead is basically the beach in front of the Rialto Beach parking area. The view of the beach is beautiful with large seastacks to the left (worth the walk if you wish to detour and check out the seastacks). To head to Hole-in-the-Wall, head to the right (north). The beach is your path!
As you stroll along the beach you'll see huge driftwood along the shore, and in the morning you may see tents housing runners of the Pacific NW Trail. You're getting closer to Hole-in-the-Wall when you pass by seastacks. At about 1.5 miles, you've reach Hole-in-the-Wall. You'll need to navigate over slippery rock to get to (and through) the Hole-in-the-Wall. Sea-life is abundant here during low tide (which is the only time you can pass through the Hole). Starfish and anemones are abundant here and at the previous seastack. When you are satisfied, turn around and head back to Rialto Beach.
