A Local Trail Makes National Geographic “20 Dream Trails”

How lucky are we to live in a place that is constantly making “the list” for our quality of life and amazing recreational opportunities.  The latest to “make a list” is the Dosewallips to Lake Quinault trail in Olympic National Park.

This 34 mile long trail goes  “between a beautiful temperate rain forest and rhododendron grove near Hood Canal at sea level, through beautiful alpine meadows to the snowfields of Anderson Pass, and into Enchanted Valley—home to black bears and elk. It continues along rushing Graves Creek, flows into the Quinault River, and then pours into Lake Quinault.”

Want to check it out? Call Olympic National Park Headquarters to check road and trail conditions, and be sure to obtain a wilderness permit.
