Our guide took us around the Quinault Lodge property, then across the road to explore the wooded areas. She was excellent at finding and identifying mushrooms, slugs, various plants, all the trees, and more.

We walked this trail around 11:00AM and only passed one other couple on the path. The fact that it was not crowded really added to the tranquility of the environment. The trail was clear and easy to navigate.

Just an easy & beautiful walk through the rainforest starting with a little cascade. The greens are so bright & vibrant with a great variety & large trees. Easy for all ages & dog friendly! Would definitely recommend stopping by the ranger station if in the area. They have great maps of all the trails.

This trail is much different than Hoh rainforest. There is a beautiful gorge running along side. We were there on a somewhat foggy, overcast day and it was still stunning.

Whether you have several days or just a couple of hours to spend in the park, this is a lovely trail with interpretive signs explaining the ecosystem of the rain forest. Especially great for out of town visitors!

Although the 18 mile drive off 101 can get a bit tedious, especially if you have not stayed nearby, the Hoh Rain forest should not be missed. The loop trail is about a mile of easy walking. The rain forest is eerie, creepy, other-worldly, beautiful, unlike anything you have seen before. The amount of foliage is overwhelming and different kinds... More

The trail through this rain forest is an easy walk with lots of information along the way. A very pleasant way to see a rain forest in action. Loved it!
