“an excellent introduction to the Olympic's temperate rain forest”

This short half-mile interpretive nature loop is an excellent introduction to the Olympic's temperate rain forest. Hiking clockwise, the first 850 feet is barrier-free and accessible to individuals in wheelchairs.  Hikers on this trail will get a good sense of the lush and diverse ecosystem at work here. Interpretive signs along the way point out features of this rain forest, from the massive trees to the abundant fungi to the animals that live here.  The trail provides good views down to Willaby Creek, and a short detour toward Lake Quinault early on gives hikers a glimpse of a small waterfall. Take the opportunity to appreciate the old-growth forest. At one interpretive sign there are four different species of massive trees in one small area. This nature loop connects to a larger trail system that allows for different loop opportunities. Consult the kiosks or pick up a map at the ranger station or Quinault Lodge to select the length of loop that works best for you.
