We had a brief visit here while traveling through Washington State, but I fell in love with this rainforest and look forward to coming back some day. It is absolutely beautiful here and unusual, since there are such few places where you can see rainforests in the United States. I was captivated by the scenery; the huge trees covered with... More

Probably the most beautiful hike my husband and I have ever done. And we hike a lot. The drive back is absolutely beautiful, river on one side, waterfalls on the other. The road turns to gravel and then you keep driving. It is a long way back. You go back to the campground. There is a trailhead for several trails.... More

The old growth trees are magnificent, hidden treasures. We lucked out with no rain so we could take our time exploring the waterfalls and beautiful moss-covered trees. Nothing like this!

This rain forest is best seen driving around the lake. There is a loop you can drive. the south side has some great trails. you can walk thru the nature loop to experience the rain forest and walk along the lake to get a little bit more. Plenty of water falls along the driving route. Great hikes.

This is the crown jewel attraction in this area. The drive was an easy way to see the best of the Olympic Park, with lots of opportunities to stop and enjoy the wonder of nature. Drive slowly and keep alert for deer and elk.

Drive the loop slow so as not to miss any of the waterfalls of mossy statutes of Sasquatch. Look for elk in the early morning between the two s curves and be careful not to pull into anyone's drive since the natives are restless. Just pull off the side of the road and take all the pictures you need.

I felt this was as nice as the Hoh Rain Forest trail. We saw a lot of banana slugs, and the trail wound around the top of small gorges, huge trees, a lot of moss and was a fun loop trail. Highly recommend!!

you need good shoes. paths are always wet and sometimes slippery. Moss hangs from everything, tree are amazing, elk & deer abound. We had the place almost to ourselves. We did the Columbia river gorge a few days before and while beautiful, it was soo crowded! No traffic here!
