The Quinault Valley receives an average of 12 feet of rain per year which maintains the temperate rainforest ecosystem. This 1.3 mile (2.1 km) loop trail leads you through large big-leaf maples hanging with rain forest mosses. The enormous moss-draped maples give the forest a cathedral feel. Elk are commonly seen here. The trail ends at the Kestner Homestead, established in 1891.
