drive north on Hwy 101 for 35 miles and, one mile south of Amanda Park, turn east onto South Shore Road. Drive along Amanda Park for about 13.5 miles, then arrive at a junction at the Quinault River Bridge. Continue right, proceeding about six miles to the road's end and the trailhead.

Begin at the Graves Creek Trailhead. At a signed junction, continue left on the wide, abandoned road through towering firs and cedar. Two miles in, the old road ends and you'll descend steeply through hemlock and fir to the East Fork Quinault. The Pony Bridge, at three miles crosses the river over a narrow, picturesque gorge lined with maidenhair ferns.

The trail continues over a series of ups and downs while paralleling the river.

Just past O’Neil Creek, at 6.7 miles, is O’Neil Creek Camp. The trail ahead crosses numerous streams including No Name Creek and Pyrites Creek, at 8 and 9.5 miles respectively. There are a few campsites near Pyrites Creek. Use caution when crossing Pyrites Creek.

The trail continues climbing to the Quinault River Bridge at 12.5 miles. Once across, the trail meanders into the charming Enchanted Valley at 13 miles.

In early summer, countless waterfalls stream down the sheer walls of valley. Bears are common in the valley area, so store your food properly at all times.
