With an average of 140 inches of rain per year, the Olympic Rainforest is one the most serene places around, especially in Autumn!

Since moving to the Pacific Northwest, I've been a fan of the Rainforests. But seeing them in Fall... MAGIC.

In almost every direction you look, you can see the glowing classic greens with the hidden gems of orange and yellow!


One of the best hidden gems known mostly to locals that we found was the Maple Glade Nature Trail!

And you can see why it's a "best kept secret"!

If you're looking to get these similar glowing conditions this time of year, and have the trail to yourself, it's best to go as early in the morning as possible.

Have you ever seen a scene so mysteriously breath taking? In a place like this, sunrise definitely has its perks!

PROS:

Completely unique mossy beauty!

Much less populated in the early morning.

Easy access and free to explore! (Excludes Hoh Rain Forest)

CONS:

Rain is an understatement, be prepared for weather!

Can be very crowded on weekends (Hoh Rain Forest)

To be honest, there are no other cons for these places!
