Really important to have this overview of Hurricane Ridge to appreciate what we were soon to view. Had my picture taken in front of horizontal tree slice, which started life in 1347. Amazing!

We got great info from a very friendly park ranger. Lots of maps and information on the walls. Great hike by the picnic tables. Ground was very wet but cool (for a short hike).

Where can we park a 31 foot 5th-wheel trailer in the next few days? We don't need hook-ups. We would like to be close to the rain forest if possible.

There's a small shopping center Forks Outfitters on the south side of Forks that might let you stay there. There's also an RV park the Forks 101 RV Park which is across 101 from the outfitters on a side street.
