streamside stroll

easy walk, limited handicap accessible on the short loop trail, but the use of a wheelchair would be difficult if the rain softened the trail

This was a great trail to see the various aspects of a rain forest, and some very large, impressive trees. We actually preferred this hike to the ones at the Hoh Rainforest for diversity of trees and plants, as well as overall scenery. There are several branches/offshoots of the main trail, so you can hike for a ways.

We hiked from the Lodge (along the lake) and then into the rain forest. This is a spectacular 2.5 - 3 mile round trip hike.

This is a beautiful and very short trail. It's not as impressive as the Hoh rain forest, but it's still very worthwhile. We actually did this as part of the bigger Quinault loop, and the entire trail (about 4.4 miles) was extremely nice. It's very pretty, peaceful and diverse. This is not awe-inspiring beauty, but a very nice spot to... More

If you have mobility concerns, take the shorter trail, about 1.5 miles. If you have more time and ability, take the longer loop of about 7 miles. Plenty of parking, with toilets nearby. Plenty of greenery, massive trees, streams and waterfalls. Even sunlight on a lucky day. Be sure to be prepared for the weather with a lightweight waterproof. You... More

This trail is a little ways from the lodge area, but has a parking lot and restroom facilities. You are rewarded on this trail with some amazing huge trees, including a huge Douglas Fir that is surrounded with a viewing deck. This is a perfect way to begin or end your visit to Quinault Lodge.

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.
