Located deep within the old-growth forests of Olympic National Park and twelve miles up a hiking trail, the North Fork Quinault Gorge is a true wilderness run.
Although the 3 mile gorge section ends at Kimata Creek, paddlers can continue on down through 9 more miles of class II whitewater to reach the North Fork trailhead.
