Spruce Railroad Trail
This 9.9-mile segment of trail follows the route of the Spruce Railroad, which was built in the waning days of WWI to bring old growth spruce logs out of the forest for building biplanes for the war effort. Locally, it is called the Spruce Railroad Trail, and it is located within Olympic National Park. It leaves from the East Beach trailhead and continues along the north shore of Lake Crescent for about 4 miles before it starts climbing gently toward the top of Fairholm Hill.

Throughout the winter season, rain falls frequently in the Hoh Rain Forest, contributing to the yearly total of 140 to 170 inches (or 12 to 14 feet!) of precipitation each year. The result is a lush, green canopy of both coniferous and deciduous species. Mosses and ferns that blanket the surfaces add another dimension to the enchantment of the rainforest.
