Quinault Rain Forest Loop Professional Review and Guide
"Conveniently located near Lake Quinault Lodge and three busy US Forest Service campgrounds, the trails in the Quinault Rain Forest are heavily used, but they remain well worth hiking, despite the crowds. Here you will discover impressive forests in all stages of development, from smaller secondgrowth trees to massive old-growth giants. The area also includes a couple of attractive fern-lined canyons, two small waterfalls, and lovely shoreline views of one of the largest lakes on the Olympic Peninsula. And all of this can be found along a fun 4-mile loop that can be completed in half a day and is located just a short distance off US 101. Ah, life is good for the hiker around here!"
