I'm from the desert so this hike fascinated me. It is a very well maintained series of trails that take you through the rain forest, near falls, with stops at Quinault Lodge (perfect for lunch). It definitely has an ascent to it but no scrambling, etc. There was some walking through shallow streams but did not come over the top... More

This trail across from the U.S. Forest Service called the Quinault Loop trail will be a wake up call to your senses. Short, easy and wonderful.

If you like it wet, reliably wet, wet all time, lush forest, rushing streams, one right next to the other, this is the place to be. Around 15 feet, not inches, feet annual precipitation. Awesome.

Make sure you bring your camera. There is a plethora of waterfalls and the trees are remarkable. We started and finished at Lake Quinault Lodge. It was a three hour hike most in the forest but finished lakeside.

I've been taking my kids to the Hoh rainforest for 25 years, and we always find something new to "discover." Nurse logs are a constant source of wonder to kids of all ages - fascinating to see how the forest renews itself. The fresh air, surprising vistas around every corner, and occasional glimpses of wildlife (eagles, deer, porcupines...) keep visitors... More

We wanted some out door experience, even though it was raining (as is to be expected in the rain forrest). We chose the short hike of about 1.6 miles. This hike has a beautiful array of rain forrest foliage, a river and some small waterfalls.

Trails were very well marked and very informative. Many trails to choose from that varied in length, difficulty and sites. They are totally awesome.

We did a 3 1/2 mile loop which was a pretty well maintained and easy trail. The grounds were frozen in some areas where the sun hadn't touched which made a pretty winter wonderland scene.
