Queets River Professional Review and Guide

"Though the Queets is the peninsula’s wildest rainforest valley, many a hiker has never ventured into this enchanting corner of Olympic National Park. The main deterrent is the intimidating and often challenging ford of the Queets River at the trailhead. But for those who venture across this wild waterway, a wilderness valley of abandoned homesteads, mossy maple groves, towering evergreens, and prolific elk await.

Queets River ford required, only safe during low flows (typically in late summer) and even then often challenging. Dogs are prohibited."
