Olympic Rainforest Trail

A path winds through a primeval world where lichens, mosses and other epiphytes coat the branches of vine maples that arch over carpets of wood sorrel. The forest envelopes Sam's River Loop Trail, a route traveled more by elk than by humans in Olympic National Park. <br />
Temperate rain forests in the valley of Queets, as well as the Quinault and Hoh, receive 12 feet of rain a year.
