This short loop circles a low-elevation old growth forest dominated by western red cedar and Douglas fir that reach for the sky, and vine maple, skunk cabbage and giant ferns that carpet the forest floor. An easy and educational walk through low-elevation forest, the Twin Firs Loop sees many tourists who stop for a brief walk before reaching the Longmire Historic District. The trail is especially popular with families, since even little visitors can hike the entire length and feel triumphant at the end. In fact, the trail has become a regular stop for weekend tours, and you can often spot a bus parked at the trailhead.
