Making a reservation for this tour is a big help. It seems to fill up fast and I can see why. They only have room for about 10-12 people in the van. The tour starts at the visitor's center at the south end of Forks. We ended up with a great tour guide named Randy. Being in the field himself... More

Do you want to see what logging is really like and how lumber is really processed. This tour is guided to logging sites and through a mill by people who have actually experienced what it's like to do this work. The scenery is great, the cost is great, and the experience is priceless.

The day we took the tour it was quite warm out and by the time we got to the Mill we were pretty tired. The tour starts at the Museum with 14 people piling into a van. The van is a work van and you feel kinda squished. It's at least a 45 minute ride up to the work site... More

Only done on Wednesdays so we were unable to do it; especially disappointing in a lumber region.

Most retired folks don’t consider traveling to the Pacific Northwest on a vacation, as it is quite remote and can be very cold or wet. When I suggested a train trip to Washington to Pam, she balked at first, stating, “why would you want to go on a trip on a train?” Well that statement from her, since I had... More

Forks Chamber of Commerce runs the 3 hour tours in a 12 passenger van sponsored by local companies. If this were commercial, you would pay $25-60 head but it is free. Consider that at the end and make an appropriate donation to the Chamber of Commerce. The volunteer driver/guide was very knowledgable and friendly, having worked in the forest industries... More
