Hike Lower Big Quilcene River



13 miles

Elevation Gain

1800 ft

Added by Riley Comstock

This a Gorgeous Hike through a rugged PNW forest that takes you past the lower part of the Big Quilcene River.

While this hike does not provide any sort of fantastic views, its does provide an easy ~13 mile roundtrip hike from the trailhead to a parking lot for the Upper Big Quilcene Trail which leads to Marmot Pass. Along the way you will cross several bridges, some large and wide, other simple log bridges with one sided rails. There are several camping spots along the way, both right next to the river. The second camp is right past a single log bridge with a handrail on the right side, and the Upper Big Quilcene trail is approximately a mile and half past it.

Head to the forest service website for area updates and a printable map.
