The Kestner Homestead Trail at Olympic National Park, WA, is an easy 1.4 mile loop hike that leads through an old homestead and the Quinault Rain Forest.

This trail is similar to the Maple Glade Rain Forest Trail, but it's longer and slightly less eye-catching.

The trail leads from the ranger station, over to the Kestner homestead, and around back of the Maple Glade trail. It's a great trail to pair with the Maple Glade and the homestead is interesting; however, it's slightly creepy when you're alone and it's off-season at the park!

Dogs are also not allowed on this trail.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. We share trails, hikes, and backpacking trips on the interwebs for the fun of it and believe that public trail information should be free and accessible to the public.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including exploring , mapping , and publishing new trails with high-quality content, adding new site features, and site maintainance and moderating. We simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 😎 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
