This part of the park is a little of a drive through tall trees and a winding road. View of the river and forest but not a lot of developed trails. You will see the oldest living Spruce here. The trail is easy to access...More

We hiked the loop on a rainy weekday. The trail was impeccably maintained and we didn't see very many other hikers, possibly because of the rain. Comparing this hike to Hoh Hall of Mosses, this hike was longer and a bit more challenging, and the...More

Wish we had had more time to do more trails! Did the short hike at the front of the park and the one to the Sitka Spruce. It's a fun photo op! Beautiful lake. If we camped, I would definitely want to camp here!

Make sure to stop and do the nature trail. It is beautiful and well worth the short hike. Lots of "world's largest tree" - we only stopped at the Spruce and it was interesting to see. The drive around the lake is, but be prepared...More

We like it better than Hoh Rain Forest; you can visit it for free (Hoh is for a fee) and is as impressive as the Hoh. There is a small area that's gravel but it's not that bad...look out for the Bunches of Falls; there's...More

We walked this the last morning at the lodge and it was a fitting end to our 3 days! Some elevation change, views along the lake until the trail goes through the camping sites and up into the rainforest. Bit of effort but not too...More

There is a ranger station but it is closed. There's a trail map posted on the board. Two loops go through the old maple grove or the old homestead. We took both and enjoyed them immensely. The trails are well marked, about .7 miles and...More

Unfortunately it was the driest summer since ages and the rain forest was not so impressive as each year before I was told. But still it was worth it to come here. It was my first time in the Rain Forest. Don't forget to see...More

We decided to go hike in the rain forest. It was a blue-bird day. When you go, the road has hardly any signs, but you are going to the Graves creek trailhead. The thing to remember is once the road turns to dirt, drive clear...More

A beautiful loop trail hike that wasn't terribly strenuous and a nice cool way to spend an hour on a warm August day!

We chose to explore the Quinault forest instead of the Hoh rainforest as it was closer to the main highway and we had limited time of 3 nights and 4 days to drive the entire loop and back to Portland. We also decided to stay... More

We drove to each waterfall and they were easily accessed. We got a map and followed it.
