I never get tired of visiting Quinault Lake the rain forest and the lodge. There are several great hikes and the views of the lake are amazing.

The forest ranger stations are closed in October, but it is worth finding a map and venturing forth. I hit four trail heads and my favorite by far was the Grove of Maples. Giant leaves drift down from moss encrusted giant trees in the most...More

We took a few hikes in the rain forest here. One of the best was also the easiest - the nature trail located on South Shore Road. It has large trees, moss, and a nice gorge. And a lot less people than Hoh.

This was a very pleasant surprise and very under rated! It is a beautiful rain forest with awesome trees, ferns and trails.

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!

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.
