There are a lot of interesting trees for kids to explore, trail is easy, and hike is short. But my kids really enjoyed this one. There is a nice restroom and a few picnic tables.

Many trails are available from a short loop to a longer trail. Trekking poles might help since some climbing is necessary .\

This is a very short, very easy little hike through a small section of the temperate rainforests of the Quinault Valley. Not steep and is a clear, wide trail. Good little hike for families with small children or people unable to tackle longer hikes.

A nice easy loop trail for 1.5 miles. It also goes for 4 miles if you want. Huge trees to look at very impressive. The trail is kept in good condition. Good walk for all ages.

Part of a network of pretty accessible rain forest walks. Very educational and lovely. You can mix them up,and get several days of good hiking.

Make sure you have your rain gears when you hike. Also, Camera or cell phone is a must because you don't know what you will see on the trail. We saw a bunch of elks along the way.

Went for two separate hikes on South Shore Road. Both were absolutely beautiful. The trails were well maintained and easily hikeable.

Great little walk with the teenagers and enjoyed the well laid out trail. Beautiful scenery and a nice running river.

We only saw a herd of elk over there; not much other than that. We didn't see any bear nor did we hear anything about bear over there. It was nice and peaceful while we were there. I hope this help and enjoy your trip.
