Nice trail

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.

This nature trail is a great option for people with kids or limited time to hike the rainforest. Easy parking and a restroom at the start of the trail. The trail is fairly flat and definitely walkable by kids. Great views of a waterfall, moss-covered trees, and the beauty of the rainforest. The walk is about 1/2 mile and takes... More

I liked the trails in the Hoh Rain Forest better but this trail is ok ... especially if you won't take any other rain forest trails in the northwest. All of fallen (huge) trees were especially impressive here.

Dont miss this hike. So close to the resorts. Worth it. There are other hikes like Irely lake but the road is a pain in the butt, this is much better or Colonel Bob trail is great as well.

We drove the loop road around the Quinault rainforest. It is a MUST DO. AMAZING. But please allow at least two to three hours to fully enjoy it. More time would be better so you can get out of the car and enjoy the sites more.
