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 / 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! ✌
