We didn't stay very long but the Hoh Rain Forest was much more interesting and much more like I pictured rain forests. This seemed much more like a regular forest with extra moss. It is pretty though so if in the area, you may as well stop.

Oh! The blue, blue blue hydrangeas that met us when we entered the Quinault area. Then the waterfalls, Then the lessons in the fishery there. And the non-stop good information our lovely tour guide gave up. A superb 3 ½ hr tour. Worth every penny.

It is not actually in the park. It really sucks when compared with lake Crescent, Hoh, Hurricane Ridge and most everywhere else we went in Olympic.

What a beautiful place! Huge trees, rolling stream, and beautiful greenery surrounds you as you walk through this short hike. Only .5 mile but some of it is elevated so pace yourself. This place is majestic and makes you feel so small...incredible.

I live an hour away from the Quinault Rain Forest and I go there often. The 15 feet of annual rain keeps the air fresh, and the forest green. Some of us locals are use to seeing the long strands of moss hanging from trees but for tourist this is pure eye candy and a real treat. I prefer to... More

We had previously visited the Hoh Rain Forest and were very pleasantly surprised to discover the Quinault Rain Forest during our stay at the park's Quinault Lodge. There is an interesting loop drive which we picked up near the Lodge, plus we enjoyed the well-maintained forest trails we encountered in the Rain Forest area.

A hot meadow. Underbrush, as in bushes taking over. Stream seems low. What this rain forest needs is some rain. Lake is lovely but not worth the drive and the Lodge is in need of tlc.

You will come across elks, deer, eagles, Bear(if you are lucky) I was told during my tour that these Bears are cool(they do not harm) unless you try to attack them :P Many sites from this rain forest reminded me of the movie avataar. Must visit place in... More

We had an outstanding tour of the Rainforest with our guide Roger.( One of the reasons we chose Lake Quinault Lodge) was because of this tour. We knew we had only two days in the area and wanted to be able to learn as much about the area as we could. Roger was very personable, professional, and has acquired a... More

We booked this morning rain forest tour through Lake Quinault Lodge. The guide/driver was very knowledgable and patient with questions. Got some beautiful photos of the forest, eagles, deer, salmon. All in all a lovely morning.
