Ten letterboxes are in place throughout the Lake Quinault community offering a fun mixture of treasure hunting and exploring the interesting places found in the rain forest. Two of the boxes are in establishments near trailheads that lead to viewing sites of Rain Forest Champion Trees. Three boxes are located in the establishments of historical buildings with intriguing stories. One box requires a one hour trip by car. Three boxes require hiking to places near and far and farther. And one box is located central to all. Clues to find the ten letterboxes can be found at http://www.quinaultrainforest.com. Click on Letterboxing.
Each letterbox contains a handmade stamp containing the image of something that is dear to this rain forest community.
