A Unique American Experience

Peace, steeped in the ages, home of the most quiet square inch in America. The Quinault Rain Forest is a must see for anyone interested in natural history.

We didn't spend a lot of time here to be fair. Hiked the Maple Glade loop, took pics at the lodge and lake, then moved on. Glad we stayed and hiked elsewhere. Loved lake Crescent - Mt. storm King, Marymere falls, Hurricane ridge, Second beach, Cape Flattery, Sol Duc Falls.

I took the Quinault Lake loop drive, about half of which is on easy gravel. Merriman Falls is located near the end of South Shore Road. Look for several turnouts on the side of the road to indicate the falls' vicinity. The falls are right on the road, so no hike is necessary to reach them. Other than Merriman Falls,... More

We hiked about ten miles of trails around the rain forest and it was amazing. The terrain changes quite a bit and you get an appreciation for the diversity of nature. The trails were not crowded at all, and in fact we saw very few other hikers. A very enjoyable way to spend the day.

If you have never seen a rain forest, then you must go and see one. It is very lush, and the trees are so tall, they make you feel like your in a fairy land.

A beautiful area, just like all of the Olympic peninsula, we had a great time in the great outdoors. Be sure to book as early as possible.

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.
