Queets River Valley
Key information: Queets River Valley
- Queets River Valley is a western valley in the Olympic National Park with huge and ancient rainforest making for fascinating and inspiring walking.
- The Queets River Trail is a 25.5km hike into fantastically pristine landscape.
- Not hard, except that a waist-deep fording of the big Queets River will be needed (beware getting stuck the wrong side by rising water levels!) Camping only.
This is remote mountain walking, on which you will have to be self-sufficient and the weather is often bad here. Come prepared.
ANYONE GOT ANY GOOD PHOTOS? WE WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO POST THEM!
