The drive is so amazing with many stops for hiking & exploring. It's easy to reach most places and there are plenty of places to picnic and relax.

We stayed nearby for three nights and were glad we gave ourselves the opportunity to explore this area further. There were far more walks and trails than we realised, all of which were enjoyable. Before this stop I had no idea that this rain forest has so many record-holding large (ancient!) trees.

Also visited Hoh Rain Forest. QRF has lots of hiking options from short, long, easy, moderate, etc. Lots of waterfalls that are easy to access, some on the roadside - Willaby Creek, Cascade, Falls Creek, Gatton Creek, Merriman, and Bunch Creek. Many of the falls were not overflowing due to lack of snow and rain in past winter. Glad I... More

Several hikes available next to or along Lake Quinault. There is a north shore and south shore so pick where you want to hike. We stayed on the south shore and hiked 1.5 hours on various trails. No rain that day.

The area around the lake is lovely and quite peaceful. There didn't seem to be as many trails to hike, but we didn't spend much time there. We did stop at the Ranger Station and the gal there was very helpful. We hiked to two of the largest trees in the world which were impressive, to say the least.

If you get a chance to stay here for a day or two I highly recommend the pony Bridge Trail! It's about 2 to 2 1/2 miles to the bridge at which point you turn back around and come back down the mountain. It is full of the most amazing lovely views!

We took a day trip from our digs in Moclips, WA to the Quinault rainforest. Our boys were 9 & 11 at the time and had the best time climbing through the giant trees and foliage of the forest. They have see woodlands in central Illinois but nothing like these phenoms!! The sitka spruce and the giant Western red cedar... More

We thought this area would be similar to the Hoh Rainforest. To us, it was not. The lake is pretty, though. The whole area has kind of mixed ownership. Some of it is owned by the Quinault Indians. Some appears to be patches of privately owned property. Some is government owned. Only the north shore of the lake is part... More
