Lake Quinault

We recently relocated to Bellingham and are planning to take advantage of the VIP special at Lake Quinault Lodge the end of February which is stay 1 night, get the next one free. We're planning on doing some major relaxing, reading books, playing games and hopefully, the weather will cooperate for a bit of hiking. Anything else we should consider at this time of year? Thanks for any information.

Welcome! Be sure to visit Ruby Beach while you're there - maybe stop at Kalaloch for lunch?

Obviously bring rain gear, including maybe some mud-friendly boots if you want to hike into the Quinault rain forest, which you should definitely do.

Thanks Gardyloo and kja. . Yep, we've made good use of mud/rain boots already in Bellingham! Thanks for the suggestions.

Gardyloo, I've been saving your replies and maps for a couple of years in anticipation of moving here. Thanks in advance for all your suggestion.

Lake Quinault Lodge is wonderful, enjoy! Be sure to check out the totem pole rain gauge on the back deck. The Mercantile across the street is a good place to buy sandwiches to go hike. They will pack them for hiking so they donít get totally squished. There are a lot of good, but short trails around here. Try to get to the Hoh. Itís very doable from here, but I know the road in to it has been an issue this winter so check first to see if it is accessible. The short Hall of Mosses trail is nice but the Hoh River trail is really nice.
