It's time again for Brews and Views Hike to Leadbetter State Park. The hike is free however it is limited to 20 people and you must RSVP to get a spot! Contact the Tap Room at 360-642-4234 or email Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will meet at North Jetty Brewing at 9:00 am then caravan for a 30 minute drive up the peninsula to the Leadbetter Point Unit of the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. Once there we will be hiking out to the ocean beach and then back along the Willapa Bay using portions of three trails (Weather Beach, Bearberry, and Bay Loop trails). Total hiking distance will be approximately 4 miles on relatively flat terrain (lasting about 3 hours). Enjoy winding through a shore pine forest before reaching grass covered dunes and protected Snowy Plover nesting areas. On the return trip, experience salt marsh meadows and the beach along the bay. Guides will be on hand to share information on the plants, animals, current habitat restoration efforts, and natural ingredients that can be used in cooking and brewing. Binoculars, suitable hiking footwear, insect repellent, and appropriate clothing for that days weather are encouraged.
If you are already in the Ocean Park/Surfside area and want to skip the drive to North Jetty Brewing and presentation you may meet us in the Leadbetter Point State Park parking lot at 10:00 am. You must be on our RSVP list to join the hike group. Parking in this lot requires a parking permit and there are NO DOGS ALLOWED in this state park.
This hike is free of charge however you will get to hear about the efforts of the Friends of Willapa group after the hike is over. At that time you may sign up if you would like or donate any dollar amount to help fund their efforts. Donations are not required but any donations of $5.00 or more will get you a $5.00 North Jetty Brewing gift certificate that will be good for one week after the hike. This hike is at your own risk and not in conjunction with the Willapa National Wildlife Refuge. It is not suitable for very small children unless they can be carried. Sometimes the trails can be overgrown or muddy.

All events or activities are voluntary and you are free to do as many or few as you want. It's the beach and I would like to keep it as stress free and casual as possible
Friday evening some will gather at Bolstad beach entrance 7:00ish to 7:30 pm then drive south down the beach. There will be a bon fire near Beards hollow (depending on tides as to where exactly) stop by and warm yourself and talk Jeep.
Saturday around 8:00 am I'd like JLB attendees to meet at Bolstad beach entrance near the restroom parking area to sign up for the Washington Coast Savers beach clean up to help remove litter and debris off the beach. The rest of the day is yours to explore the area or just relax. Saturday evening some will gather again at Bolstad beach entrance 7:00ish -7:30pm then drive south to the fireside Jeep family meet&greet reunion thingy.
Sunday Show & Shine and awards ceremony starting at 7:30am Held at the Beach Barons field in Ocean park (25815 Peninsula Highway, Ocean Park) then a drivers meeting to discuss route and bathroom stops Then we will roll out up the Peninsula as far we can to access beach then drive north to the closure boundary and I'll set GPS this year to drive south for 20 miles for an unofficial world record. This year we will do a bathroom stop or 2 along the way. We will form up for Jeep spell and then disperse.
I have to put this out here that I'm proud of everyone that attended last year. Everyone behaved perfectly and I've heard no complaints, as I'd expect nothing less from Jeepers Stating the obvious here but all attendees and their Jeeps are bound by all federal and state laws. All traffic laws are enforced on the beach and vehicles are only allowed to travel on the uppermost hard packed sand not above in the soft dry sand and not below in the water or wet sand where the clam beds are. Be courteous to pedestrians and equestrians! stop or slow down if needed and give them room as not to startle them. Long Beach is as far as I know the longest beach in the US you can still drive on, let's keep it that way. Thank you all and see you at the beach ❤
