Quinault Rainforest Backpacking Overnight

“Step into the Quinault rain forest and immediately be propelled into a world of primeval beauty. Start your journey under a canopy of towering, emerald giants: ancient Sitka spruce, western red cedar, and western hemlocks that were mere saplings when Christopher Columbus set sail for the Americas.” –Washington Trails Association

Join TOP on this 6 mile (one way) backpacking overnight into the stunning Quinault Rainforest, one of the only temperate rainforests in the world. Come hike into the Valley of the Giants and stand next to some of the largest Spruce, Hemlock, Cedar and Douglas Fir trees on the planet. Food and camping equipment provided by TOP.
