20 feet




Not listed

The Gatton Creek trail at Lake Quinault is one of the less frequented segments of the Quinault Recreation Area.

The hike from the Giant Spruce to the Falls is a three spoon hike, 0.8 mile one way with a total of 180 feet elevation gain, 30 stairs, and a couple of steep sections.

For a shorter one spoon non-wheelchair accessible hike with only 20 feet of elevation change you can drive 0.4 mile down the gravel Wrights Canyon Road and walk to the falls.

There is a picturesque bridge over the canyon, and lovely views of the surrounding mountains. The trail is dog-friendly.
