Charlie knows his stuff - great guide! You'll never find the best sights by yourself. Don't miss it.

The hike is relatively easy and you can make as long or difficult - the intensity of the forest is amazing as well as the vegetation. Trails are well kept with excellent signage and lots to see. Recommend.

We always do the rainforest nature walk with Mary. She does her research and there is a lot we learn. Beautiful scenery so bring your camera.

What an experience. We compared the forest trails to a scene from Avatar. If you've never visited a rain forest you should, and Lake Quinault Lodge is the place to do it from.

Not a difficult trail, and there are options to make it long or short. Interesting interpretive signs along the way - stop, learn, listen and enjoy! Look up once in awhile to appreciate the giant trees which surround you...

Great rainforest environment. No crowds like at Hoh River. You can start from the Lodge or park at one of the trailheads. We made a loop including the lakefront and then hiking up the hills into the canyons. In a word: verdant.

We walked this in the rain, and I wish I'd been wearing proper rain boots, because the trail was full of large puddles it was hard to avoid. I did have an umbrella and a rain jacket, though the umbrella obscures some of the view. There were some neat informative boards but overall I didn't enjoy it. It is probably... More

This short, easy rain forest hike was especially stunning in the morning (as probably would be in the evening) when the light filtered through the leaves/moss/ferns at an angle.

Beautiful old spruces, was the only one on the trail, lots of neat banana slugs, wonderful creeks and falls. Just a fabulous little getaway hike.
