Visit: Cheryl's Northwest Tours, 2420 4th Ave W, Seattle, WA 98119-2635
You and your driver guide will depart Seattle in the morning for a 11 hour tour. It is 3.5 hours to the first trail in the Quinault Rain Forest, but we'll stop along the way to stretch. Once you are there, it's fun time. Walk the first trail with mosses and ferns galore, plus a giant douglas fir, then go see the world's largest Spruce tree. There are many of the nation's largest trees in this forest. Lunch follows.
After lunch, you'll be taken to a second trail, that includes an historical farm that was donated to the Park. This trail is lush and meanders along a wooded stream, with indescribable lush moss and ferns everywhere.
On the road there and back you'll stop in Aberdeen for a rest break. Kurt Cobain of Nirvana was born here and the sign entering the city says 'Come as you are'.
