Visited the Quinault Rainforest on a very rainy day recently. The waterfalls were gushing, the rivers over their banks, the dense forest was in it’s magnificent glory. The loop trail off the parking lot of the North Shore Road ranger station is enchanting.

You must have several days to explore this amazing forest! Don't miss Hurricane Ridge, the Hoh Rainforest and Rialto Beach. All are incredible and very different from one another.

Great place, quiet, loved driving through the many forests. Especially enjoyed Lake Crescent. Beautiful place that is still mostly untouched by human hands!
