The Little Quilcene Trail is a historical hike in Olympic National Park featuring beautiful views of Puget Sound, Mt. Baker, and Port Townsend. In season, the trail hosts an amazing array of wildflowers and birds. Dogs are allowed on this trail. This hike is perfect for avid and experienced hikers who want a challenging and extremely rewarding day trip!

Little Quilcene Trail is a 16.1 mile out and back trail close to Sequim, Washington. The trail is an alternate route to the Mt. Townsend summit. There is very little water access along the trail, so make sure to bring extra. The best place to refill water is in Silver Creek, a short distance up Tubal Cain Trail.
