Rock slides and waterfalls are evident, and even in late summer snowfields cover ground almost down to the beach, ground that appears to have only recently been under finger glaciers. Known locally as one-haul bay. The easiest approach, from the east, is to pass to the outside (south) of the outermost wash rock and then turn right and proceed almost due north, passing to the east of the small island, and to the west of the rocks and kelp bed on the east side into the inner bay. A salmon run headed for the stream at the head of the inlet attracts seiners and tenders during the season, but the most singularly distinctive feature of west arm is the presence of numerous large patches of windfall timber on the slopes above the water. Be aware of the submerged reef extending west from the south side of the entrance.
