Loved our time in the Quinault Rain Forest. In the summer it was a deep green, mossy, earthy scented paradise. Absolutely beautiful, the trails can be muddy and hilly, be prepared for unexpected rain and wear bug spray. We brought a big plastic bag for our good camera on the trail with us in case of rain..

This walk is intriguing. It's primordial. It is not a strenuous hike but leaves you feeling like you just captured an ancient and holy place. Wear walking shoes. Don't be in a hurry. It's kid friendly. So happy I made this happen.

We went here and did both the south side then the north side then went all the way around the lake. Saw lots of great stuff including Deer and lots of elk. Just a warning it rains in a rain forest, so go prepared with boots and a rain jacket. Even when it stops raining water drips from the moss... More

The Quinault Rain Forest is an environmental adventure that must be seen in person to really appreciate. Long moss hangs from huge trees, trails snake through the forest, waterfalls tumble down sides of hills, and Lake Quinault sparkles when the sun is out...after all it is a rain forest. This is my second visit to the Quinault Rain Forest and... More

Check out both shores! On the north shore (Olympic NP) we did the Maple Glade Loop. A short but beautiful walk through the rainforest. Especially around the little stream it is very nice. Nice hike on the south shore (Olympic NF) is the Falls Creek Loop Trail. You walk between giant trees and you can see the Cascade Falls

We walked a half-mile nature trail in the rain forest. There were rushing streams and lots of BIG trees. It was very lush with lots of ferns. We enjoyed the quiet and solitude of the forest. It was an well maintained path that was easy to walk.

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.

It rained the entire time we were in Quinault! But we did venture out to the rain forest. The first time we had seen the large trees, moss laden, dripping and looking like something from a horror film. We drove the trail around the lake where we saw a few waterfalls.The trail was narrow and one way in many places.... More
