Quinault River Pony Bridge Trail is a 4.8 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Forks, WA that features a river and is rated as moderate. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Great hike, but the road to grave creek campground and the trailhead is closed two miles out, so the walk on the road to the trailhead added an additional 4 miles to the hike. The walk on the road is dusty and long but once we got to the trailhead it was a wonderful hike.
I took my girlfriend here with some friends so that she could do her first overnight trip. It's an excellent place for people who are first timers to backpacking. It is easy and takes less than a couple hours to get to campsite. Awesome growth forest as well.
huge old growth forest.
awesome trail all year
Did this day hike with the wife on 15 Sep 13 and absolutely loved it. Our first time in the Quinault Valley and didn't want to push her very hard but she really enjoyed it. Easy 5 mile round trip hike to the bridge and worth the trip even for beginners if you have the right weather gear.
Already looking forward to extending this trail to the Enchanted Valley next year!!!
