Was rushed and did not get to spend enough time here. Beautiful and interesting are the best words I can come up with. I really enjoyed what time I had.

May be on a smaller scale than the Hon Rainforest but every bit as good. Ideal for children and more to do.

If you have a good rain coat, grab it and head to the Quinault Rain Forest. We hiked here for three days and are so sorry to have had to leave this area. The trails are all nice and the hidden waterfalls and other gems along the way are surprisingly beautiful.

We stayed in a "Deluxe Cabin" on a beach in the Quinault Rain Forest for a few days @$259.00 a night! Expensive; yet I would stay here again. The cabin was only a couple hundred yards from the ocean; with beautiful views. It faced West; as such, a beautiful sunset every night! The cabin itself was wonderful, with a Jacuzzi... More

I REALLY enjoyed this location. It was a sunny day and the way the light caught the moss on the trees was incredible. I have some great photos (#nofilter LOL) from this rainforest. We did the trail easily and this didn't take a huge chunk of our time but it was SO worth it.

Several trailheads are just across the road from Lake Quinault Lodge - just select the length that's right for your group. The river runs through in some areas and if it's the right time in the fall, you will see bright red salmon spawning. My favorite trail takes you up to the top of the where you walk in a... More

Go all the way to the end of the road and you'll find a lovely open campsite. From there you'll find the trailhead that takes you into the interior. The trails are well maintained and moderately difficult due to the ups and downs. If you're really ambitious you might like to know that it's only a week's hike to Hurricane... More

We stayed on Quinalt Lake as part of our larger trip around the outside of Olympic National Park. The trails are very quiet and there is some lovely old growth forest with exceptional VBTs (Very Big Trees) as you drive back behind the lake on the east end, and hike up along the river. Quinalt lake was closed to swimming... More

We didn't get to see much of the Quinault Rain Forest but liked what we saw. Got a bit confused about fees and jurisdictions though; parts of Olympic National Park charge a fee (like the Hoh Rainforest) but Quinault does not. Also there is the Colonel Bob Wilderness and Olympic National Forest and some other jurisdictions all right there and... More

A beautiful walk through the woods with lots of spots for photos. Although don't forget the bug spray because the misquotes will eat you alive. And make sure you have plenty of water and food others wise you will get hungry and thristy and it is a long hike but very picturesque. But some of the bridges are under construction... More
