East Fork Quinault River and Pony Bridge

East Fork Quinault River and Pony Bridge Professional Review and Guide

"Hike along the East Fork Quinault River through a forest of big trees to a narrow waterfall-fed canyon. Explore the same primeval rainforest valley that explorers of the 1890 O’Neil Expedition set out across. And witness a wilderness not unlike the one those intrepid souls experienced.

The Quinault is one of the grandest of the rainforest rivers. Draining much of the Olympics’ southwest corner, the Quinault is comprised of two main branches: the North and East Forks. This hike takes you along the East Fork, through a deep glacier-carved valley.

Dogs are prohibited."

This is a beautiful trail out of the Graves Campground area 10 miles from quinault Lodge. This trail gets prettier as it goes but we only had time to get about 6 miles in, so we went as far as the pony bridge. It climbs about a 1,000 feet in the first 2 miles, then drops about 300 feet to the bridge. But it was well worth it. Great lunch spot overlook the water.
