This rain forest is very nice. The walked along the two easy trails and it was really magic. If you don't have time to visit both this and the Hoh rainforest, I would suggest to visit the Hoh rainforest that it's even more beautiful.

Less polished than Hoh. Beauty everywhere, mysterious, awe inspiring. So glad I got to experience this national treasure.

If you have time, head all the way of up to Graves Creek or the N. Fork and hike from there. If not, simple forest walks in and around the lodge are beautiful too.

Don't know if it was the season or if it's just been more dry this past year but the trails were all very dry for a "rainforest". The trees were still stunning!

Seeing the nurse logs nurturing feeding and supporting the next generation of tress was beyond words and not to be missed.

Our family has been to multiple nat'l parks, including some of the more popular like Great Smokey Mts, Grand Canyon, and Yellowstone but Olympic has been my favorite so far. I love how you have the three distinct areas, the beach, the mountains, and the rain forest. We stayed in the rain forest on Lake Quinault and it was the... More

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.
