This was a short trail near Lake Quinault that was a self-led interpretive trail which gave details about the temperate rainforest and what to expect throughout Olympic National Park.

The trails are well pathed. They are a little strainers in places but the forest, rivers and waterfalls make it a more than worth while. The trails aren't long so ideal to take children on aswell.

This is a beautiful short hike. Easy for everyone. A must see when in Lake Quinault. We took many great photos here, we were lucky that the weather was clear and sunny, or you would generally need your rain slicker!

Fantastic trail system that you can easily spend days exploring. Easily accessible hiking for all ages. Our group could have easily spent a week exploring every nook and cranny to be found along the trail. We left already wanting to come back! There is so much to see, you cannot miss these trails!

We could have stayed at Lake Quinault for many more days than the two that we did. The hiking trails are numerous and offer so many different things to see and do, and ranging from easy to more difficult to strenuous. For the most part, we chose the mid-level trails and were amply rewarded.

Take all day or take an hour but be sure to hike as many of the meandering trails along the shore of Lake Quinault near the Lodge. There are several of varying lengths that wind through the rainforest. It's peaceful, green and lush. Depending on the time of year you can eat your way around the trail. It's lined with... More

We walked outsides of the trails leaving by the hotel and coming out by the lodge. There were waterfalls, old growth trees and berries along the way.

This tree is at the end of a 5-10 minute hike down a trail. If you have time to kill, nice to see, but the forest up the road is so so much better, it's not really worth it if you are pressed for time.
