If lollygagging to giant trees is on your bucket list, then head to the Olympic Peninsula where you’ll find the highest number of gargantuan trees contained into the smallest area in the whole wide world. The Olympic Peninsula’s rainforests are hiding some straight-up giants among the moss, ferns, verdant valleys, and swirling streams. See a “Forest of Giants” in the Olympic National Park where champion trees believed to be over a 1,000 years-old still stand today.
The Quinault Rain Forest and Lake Quinault are home to 6 of our 8 giant trees which makes for an easy day trip from Port Angeles, Washington. These trees are recognized by the National Forestry Association as the largest living trees of their kind. So throw on your rain boots and get exploring some of the largest trees outside of the Redwoods and Sequoias in California.
