The loop trail is really beautiful and well worth doing. It is approximately a mile and a half. Great scenery the entire length - moss covered trees, thick forest, ferns, streams and waterfalls. I would judge the difficulty level as easy to moderate. I went alone and just knew that there would be a mountain lion or bear on the... More

The bus tour was from 9:30AM to 1:30 PM, $35 per person. Very worthwhile. Mainly focused on families who homesteaded in the area, history of the park and area, and trees.

Lovely walk, fine for anyone in good health, charming vistas and very near the inn. wear good shoes, and take some water as it is steep in places, you won't 'need' it but you will be glad to have it.

Lovely hike in the rainforest near the Quinault Lodge. Dog friendly (on leash!) hike and we thought it was a cool short hike. We ended up across the street from one of the "big trees" so we went and saw that too.

This was our first rain forest and the trail was lovely and an easy walk. The sights in the rain forest were amazing.

If you are visiting Lake Quinault this short walk is an absolute must do. The abundant growth, the water falls, and the tranquility are stunning. I like to hike it in the pouring rain.

First, I had envisioned the rain forest in Washington to be a place of huge ferns, big plants, tons of moss, mushrooms and massive trees. This is not that kind of a rain forest. It is a beautiful place but there are very few large trees, a few but not many and there are a lot of mushrooms. I am... More
