Enchanting? Dearly! Follow the East Fork Quinault River through ancient and towering cathedral rain forest to a deep open valley in the heart of the Olympics, where waterfalls plunge down sheer walls and turn to hanging ice in winter. Watch for harlequin ducks riding river rapids and elk and bears foraging the forest fl oor. Explore cascades, river fl ats, maple glades, spruce groves, a thundering chasm, and a historical chalet. This trip is an Olympics classic—the Enchanted Valley’s low elevation allows exploring late and early season, adding to its popularity.
