This is a very good trial, well kept with great examples of large trees, moss, bogs and waterfalls. The trail we walked was about 4 miles long and was easy to walk, however a stroller might not work on this trail.

Stayed at the Lake Quinault Lodge and it was perfect to walk to hikes in the forest. Service was very good and dining and views excellent.

There is easy access to the trail with a parking lot just a few feet away. The trail is easy with slight inclines. We did it in less than an hour. It looks like a rain forest with lots of moss and lush vegetation.

I find it hard not to give all the places I saw in Olympic an excellent rating. We enjoyed walking through the rain forest (in the rain) and seeing the various plants, trees and water falls.

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
