Went here as part of 2 day stop in olympic national park. Did the maple glade trail on the north side and the quinault rain forest nature trail, part of Trail of the Giants, Willaby Campground trail, and visited the world's largest sitka spruce trail on the south side. Took a couple of hours within some driving between the north... More

This wasn't on our itinerary but as we saw the signs driving north along the coast, we knew we had to stop. So glad we did. We walked the loop around and it was so beautiful. Amazing sights with all the trees and plants. Easy little hike and didn't take too long.

Our family spent the day driving around the lake and stopping to hike along the way. Our favorites were the Big Cedar trail and the Maple Glade grove. These hikes take you through huge ferns, giant trees, waterfalls, and stunning river views. The hiking/driving trip took up the majority of one day. You could easily spend several days exploring the... More

Great place for family to hike around a wonderful rain forest. Bring warm clothes and a poncho (just in case). Needed warmth even in the hot summer.

This is the lesser known temperate rain forest in the Olympic National Park. The Quinault Nature Trail is a good introduction to the features of the rain forests in Washington. The approximately half mile trail has many placards explaining what you are seeing. It is a beautiful and informative hike.

This is a really short trail and there are many points with boards/placards which do an awesome job of describing the flora and fauna and the ecosystem.You can finish the hike in a few minutes, but you can also spend hours here if you read all the annotations and take the time to observe the plants and insects and birds...

Some of my family had moved to the area around a year ago. This is the first place they wanted to take us. The area is beautiful! Not sure of the hikes we took, because we just followed them. We ended up at the lake. The kids went into the water up yo their knees. The hike was gorgeous, and... More

Located in the far SW corner of Olympic National Park is Quinault Lake and rainforest. Not as crowded as Hoh, but with the same amazing trees and other vegetation. Several very nice trails are directly across the street from the lodge and visitor's center. Several very large trees are in the valley. We went to see the world's largest sitka... More

We hiked Ho Rainforest the day prior but wanted to hike this less crowded region. We hiked from Graves trailhead to Pony Bridge (a 2.5 mile hike one way). However, currently the road to Graves trailhead is washed out and the hike from the temporary parking area to the trailhead is an additional 2.5 miles one way. So the hike... More
