Beautiful stroll

This short trail is so peaceful and beautiful. It is mostly level and not a long strenuous walk. Unless you are disabled, this is an easy stroll.

One of the prettiest places on earth. It compares to Yellowstone and that is a must see also. You can't imagine how tall the trees and lush the grounds are.

Not difficult to walk and well marked. Beautiful river on route. Easy to access. Chairs available to sit on to rest if needed. Really feel part of the rainforest.

This was the first time we hiked in a rain forest, and it was a beautiful one to start with. The scenery and greenery were both beautiful and serene. A great, easy hike.

We hiked the loop out to the Big Flat and wanted to go further but it was late. Easy to Moderate but you can hike for several miles if you do the entire set of trails there.

We combined a number of the inter-connected trails and had a good day out seeing the waterfalls and the largest Douglas fir tree. Some places obviously had very few walkers and were overgrown, others were relatively free of overgrowth. There were flowers in bloom and the salmonberries were in abundance. We didn't see the banana slugs or the elk, but... More

A nice trail that lets you see a number of rain forest features. Signage is good and informative. And we found.....banana slugs! That alone made the trip worthwhile.

The informational signs give details about the rain forest. Good way to learn more about the area. The nature trail is a short hike but you can add on other trails to increase the distance

We love the Quinault temperate rain forest and it's one of our favourite places on the planet. Moss-covered branches, fallen trees nurturing new growth, waterfalls, babbling creeks, all visible on or from a great network of well-mapped and maintained trails from which you can pick and mix whatever distance suits you. Just lovely.
