Tubal Cain Rhododendrons Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This is a trail that has a lot going for it, but everything is overshadowed by a mile- long corridor of Pacific rhododendron. When the Rhodys are in bloom, you get to hike through a pink, rose, and purple- colored tunnel of flowers. By far this is one of the best places to see Rhododendrons on the Olympic Peninsula.

The trail begins at the south side of the small parking area and in 100 feet brings you to a reader board. The forest here is a mix of Western hemlock, Douglas fir, and Western red cedar, with a jungle of Pacifi c rhododendron (Rhododendron macrophyllum) below. Also in the understory are Oregon grape (Mahonia nervosa), Bunchberry (Cornus unalaschkensis), Salal (Gaultheria shallon), Twinfl ower (Linnaea borealis), Baldhip rose (Rosa gymnocarpa), and Pipsissewa (Chimaphila umbellata). When they’re all in bloom, the trail is splashed with color."
