Visited in April. It was raining too hard when we arrived, but still got some great photos from inside the car.

We started on the north drive and made the loop. The gravel road is easily passable for passenger cars and worth the trip. The homestead is cool but the rain forest loop is spectacular

Absolutely beautiful and we were fortunate to see elk. The waterfalls were amazing and the river was the most beautiful colour. Take the time to enjoy the nature trails.

Lake Quinault and vicinity is a good, pristine nature area. Considering my visits to many national parks, I did not find anything very special here. The lake vicinity is good with the lodge area, restaurant and the gift shops etc. The rain forest trails are...More

One of our favorite redwood hikes. Beautiful, easy, and nicely interpreted. Lovely rain forest. Easy to get to.

We drove down to the lake, an stopped with a small walk t the edge - you could hear a pin drop, it was so quiet, Lake Quinault was near to Big Hotel - Quinault I think.

We started the loop drive on the North side of Lake Quinault - it was a small windy road through some houses and then more and more in the forest. After a while, the elevation started changing (rising) and the road turned to gravel. This...More

The Quinault Rain Forest is such an enchanting place to visit. The vine maples draped in curtains of moss, the tall Fir trees and old cedars. The smell is one I find so comforting, its so deep and earthy. A drive around Lake Quinault should...More
