Quinault Rain Forest Loop Drive
The Quinault Rain Forest Loop Drive is a 31 mile loop around Lake Quinault, up the Quinault River into the Olympic National Park, and back around the other side. It is a great way to experience the Quinault Valley. There are many opportunities along the way to stop for viewing waterfalls and wildlife, and taking walks, hikes or photographs. You gain many views of the surrounding mountains, giant trees, and the Quinault River. Keep a keen eye out for Roosevelt elk, black-tail deer, cougar, bald eagle, bobcat, black bear and gorgeous views of the Olympic Mountains. Allow two hours minimum to complete the trip by car.
