The Woodland Drive Road End, Located on Bainbridge Island in Washington, is one of the sixty road ends found on the island that provide the public with access to the beach. As a result of the unique geographical layout of the island, road ends were necessary to install and maintain so beach access is never a problem for locals and visitors. All road ends have limited parking, so arriving early with your pooch is a must if you're looking to snag a decent spot.
The peaceful, naturalistic environment found specifically at Woodland Road End provides you and your pooch with an opportunity to observe the surrounding wildlife while watching the kayakers hard at work in the waters of Manzanita Bay. The mixed gravel and sand beach can be found after venturing through a trail beginning at Woodland Drive Road End and ending at the beach.
The beach is accessible by going down a few, recently installed stone steps that provide your pooch with perfect water access. While you and your pup are cooling off in the beach waters, you can look to the west and enjoy picturesque views of the Olympic Mountains. This lovely, little location invites all dogs into the water and to explore the trails, as long as they remain on-leash with you at all times. Don't forget to grab some extra disposal bags so you can clean up after your pooch during your visit.
Bringing a lunch for you and your pooch is always an option to extend your stay at the beach because food is permitted and a bench was also recently installed. Like your pup's waste, just make sure to clean up any garbage you bring or make to keep the beach clean and enjoyable for all! General Beach rules include no fires, camping, or overnight parking.
Without a doubt, the secluded beach established at Woodland Road End is the perfect place for you and your pooch to stop in to cool off if you find yourself on Bainbridge Island.
