The Lake Shore Trail at Olympic National Forest, WA, is an easy 2.2 mile out-and-back hike that brings you along Lake Quinault.

This trail leads from the northwest corner of the Rain Forest Nature Trail, thus requiring an extra 0.2 - 0.3 miles in addition to the 2.2 out-and-back miles.

When I did this trail in mid March 2017, the lake's water level was so high that it flooded the trail, so the GPS data provided is only 1.1 miles out-and-back, instead of the full length of the trail at 2.2 miles out-and-back.

When you're heading northeast on the trail and come out by the campground, follow the campground's road (stay left) until you reach campsite #6. Just beyond campsite #6 is the continuation of 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!️
