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 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 (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
