“The scenic end point is enchanted indeed.”— Steve Jackson
You can break this route up by camping along the way halfway up. While camping along the trail will give you a much more in depth experience, the trail is easily conquered in a single day.
Once you make your way up to the Enchanted Valley, you see why it has earned the name. There are sheer cliffs across the Quinault, with hundreds of waterfalls streaming down it early in the season. You can spend a couple days in the valley exploring, and each day will be well worth your while.
