The nature trail is short and a very easy walk. As soon as you enter the ancient forest it is quiet and beautiful. The smell is clean and refreshing. The signs along the path educate you on the differences between the Douglas Fir, Cedar and Sitka Spruce and the importance of everything in the forest to our eco system. This... More

We liked the whole experience. When we stopped, the guide explained about the waterfalls, or the trees or the fish, depending upon the stops and she seemed both knowledgeable and eager to share her information with everyone.

Nothing to dislike about these trails. They are well maintained, and easy enough for even the most lazy hiker to tackle. Two of the trail heads are just adjacent to the hotel, making it easy to come and go.

Great waterfalls, huge trees, lots of boss and fern covering everything. The trails were okay, a little steep at times.

The hike is short, but really give you a beautiful rain forest experience. It was my first trip to the Olympic and the Quinault hike and the north/south shore drive is wonderful. Many great photographic opportunities!

You really can see a lot on this trail. There are some huge trees, lots of moss, river views and tons of berry vines and other plants and flowers. If you keep an eye out, you will probably see some banana slugs too-- don't say I didn't warn you!!

Good hike, with many interpretive signs that give real insight to the cultural and natural history of the rainforest. Much enjoyed, and it can be done rather quickly if necessary, less than 30 min.

This couldn't be a more perfect hike for a family with young kids. Its only a short loop but packed with giant trees, rivers and beautiful rain forest. Also great for a hike in the rain.

A beautiful lodge nestled in the heart of the woods overlooking the lake. The view from the first floor remodeled room is all natural looking out at the lake. King size bed, fireplace and a view. Very romantic. The only thing missing was a microwave. They have a fridge and coffee maker but it would have been nice to be... More

A nice taste of this remarkable habitat type and some remarkably huge trees along the trail. The interpretive signs are very well done. Hats off to the Forest Service recreation folks and landscape architect who designed this one.
