We would like to visit ONP this summer and I have read a number of post, but I am confused as to the best way to do this. We plan to fly from Colorado and rent a car. We could stay about a week and are mainly interested in hiking and possibly kayaking. It sounds like things are far apart and that we should stay in three different areas, Lake Quinault, Lake Crescent and possibly Sol Duc. I'm not sure which order makes sense and where to stay. We like to stay in nice places and do not camp. I previously reserved five nights at Kalaloch Lodge, but people on the forum seem to be saying that it is far from most of the major attractions. Also, is Seattle the best place to fly into?
Would appreciate any suggestions on itinerary and where to stay, also the best time to go.
