What a great trail, one of several that we hiked here. I took so many photos that I was glad to not still be using slide film like I was 15 years ago.

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.

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.

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.
