From the historic timber town of Forks to the surfboard-worthy waves and sea stacks of First Beach, this Olympic Peninsula region is ideal for those seeking coastal experiences and adventure, the lush Hoh rainforest or to explore the town made famous by the Twilight Saga novels.
Discover 70 miles of protected coastline and a sanctuary teeming with wildlife, from tidal pools to eagles to deer–and sometimes cougar and bear! Hike forested trails, explore the Quillayute River brimming with salmon and trout and dig into the deep–rooted culture of the local Native American tribes, like the Quileute, Hoh and Makah.
The town of Forks is the ideal basecamp for Olympic Peninsula adventure and a destination on its own, drawing Twilight fans from around the globe.
