The Quinault Rain Forest is such an enchanting place to visit. The vine maples draped in curtains of moss, the tall Fir trees and old cedars. The smell is one I find so comforting, its so deep and earthy. A drive around Lake Quinault should take hours if you really want to get the full effect this forest can have on you. But drive slowly! You may see herds of elk wandering up the river bar, or a bear or cougar crossing the road in front of you. There are also a number of waterfalls to capture on film as you travel this wonderland. This is a place of such beauty, it will definitely be a memory you will treasure. There are plenty of trails of different degrees in difficulty for day hikes or longer hikes if you prefer. Take a raincoat though, it is not called a Rain Forest for nothing. You can tell the locals from the tourists because the locals don't use an umbrella. They say people from the Lake don't tan, they rust.
