This was a perfect location for all things Quinault area! The north shore, in my opinion, has better trails and is less crowded. The cabin really is in the rainforest. The backyard itself had several little walking paths inside the forest. It was wild and beautiful. Cabin was clean and comfortable and includes several unexpected treats.
If staying, I recommend the July Creek picnic loop where you can get down to the shore of the lake. We also enjoyed the Maple Glen trail more than the popular Rainforest Nature Trail on the south shore. One of the official trails (Kestner) is literally across the street from the cabin.
