The line was abandoned in 1985. Today the truss and trestle represent the longest bridge over the Dungeness River. The Audubon Center hosts spectacular exhibits of local birds and wildlife and provides on-site environmental programs for adults and children. The Center is host to events all year including the annual Birdfest in April, River Festival in September and weekly bird walks every Wednesday morning.

Stretching into the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Dungeness Spit measures 5.5 miles and is the longest natural sand spit in the nation. The spit is a National Wildlife Refuge. The calm waters and tide flats are rich in marine life and provide protection from winds and pounding surf. More than 250 species of birds, 41 species of land mammals and eight species of marine mammals have been recorded at the refuge. At the tip of the spit sits the New Dungeness Lighthouse, one of the oldest in the Northwest operating continuously since 1857. The lighthouse is maintained by the New Dungeness Chapter of the United Lighthouse Society who offers tours.
