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.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
