Extremely beautiful! Very ancient moss-draped forest with streams and waterfalls. Not too steep but challenging enough in hot weather. Well shaded and well maintained path.

Another great backpacking trip with some friends for Labor Day weekend. Weather was beautiful made it to Moonshine Flats with our heavy load in 4 hours, during our hike about 2.5 miles in or so there was a yellow jackets nest on the ground next to the trail so beware of that. Lots of other bugs too. The next morning we woke early to see the beautiful sunrise at the top of Colonel Bob. There was no visible sign of the Elk carcass on the way to the top. Last day, our trek back down took us about 2 hours with trekking poles (highly recommended for going back down) & lots of water unless you have a water filter, you can refill down by the creek @ Moonshine flats All in all it was a great trail to hike.

Well-maintained trail. Mostly in the shade. A perfect walk for our first afternoon on the Olympic Peninsula.

HikingFeeGreat!

- Plenty of parking. Not busy mid Saturday in August. Any car can get here. - $5 cash parking fee. NW Forest pass and America the Beautiful passed honored here. No Discover Pass. Rangers patrolling. - Bathrooms open and clean. - Informational signs teaching you about the forest throughout. Great for kids. - Take the quick detour down to Lake Quinault. You won’t regret it! - Gorgeous photo ops. 10/10 will do again.

Nice easy hike with beautiful ferns, mossy trees, waterfalls, huge trees and some of the largest mushrooms I've ever seen.

HikingGreat!

We did the hike on a Wednesday morning, entered from the parking lot of Rain Forest Nature Loop, and barely met any people along the trail. The rainforest portion of the loop hike was pretty fun, but the 1-mile portion from the Quinault Lodge back to the parking lot had the best view IMO. It was a pretty flat and easy hike all the way.

HikingRockyScramble

A challenging but rewarding hike. Epic views at the top. Be warned there was a recently killed Elk Carcass only a few feet from the trail about a 1/3 mile from the peak, just past Moonshine Flats as of (8/24/20) and bear scat as well. Terrible smell. Wear a mask. You can't see it until you're on right top of it.

HikingGreat!

This is a well-maintained trail, with multiple entry points - across from Quinault Lodge, at the Willaby Campground, or at the bigger parking lot of the Rain Forest Nature Loop. Interesting walk where you get a change of scenery every now and then, including the forest, the old Quinault Lodge, and lake views. Note that you don't need to go through the Lodge, but can find the trail outback of the Lodge. I did spend a few mins at the Lodge, though, reading some of the history. Made for a unique hike!

Beautiful trail great for all ages. Walk through the forest, all shaded, and enjoy the interpretive signs. $5 parking fee at a good-sized parking lot. Also toilet facilities at the lot.

Hiking

Great loop of well maintained gorgeous connected trails. Well labeled with maps at each point (if they aren’t torn down that is). We took a photo of the map at the trailhead to be safe. Trailhead was difficult to find. The official trailhead is directly across form Lake Quinault lodge. No parking available there. We continued down South Beach Road and parked just passed the Smokey the bear sign in a small lot on the left hand side. There is a trail map on a board there and two ways to access the trail. Didn’t run into too many people for a gorgeous sunny Saturday afternoon, most were wearing masks.

HikingBugsOver grown

Lots of bugs for the first mileish (especially in the parking lot). It looks loke the trail is closer to 6.5 miles now roundtrip (not sure if this is due to rerouting). A few diverging trails around the first plateau and creek but stick to Alltrails and you'll be on the easiest one. Gets steep after the creek. Views at the top make it worth it.
