The History

Forks sits on traditional lands of the Quileute Tribe, one of many Native American tribes on the Olympic Peninsula. Although it’s been known as a logging town, white settlers first came to the Quileute Valley grow hops along with other crops. The 1970s logging boom brought Forks fame as “The Logging Capital of the World.” That industry is slowly being replaced by tourism and small businesses including outdoors outfitters, rafting trips, hunting guides, and fishing charters. It is, of course, also home to Edward and Bella of Twilight film series fame. Take a tour and enjoy the Stephanie Meyer/Bella’s Birthday Festival.


The Shopping

Forks has become the arts and culture center of the West End of the Olympic Peninsula. Home to everything from authentic Mexican cuisine to great Northwest comfort food, you won’t go hungry in this little town of about 3500 people. Visit Chinook Pharmacy for books, fabric and craft materials, Twilight memorabilia, toys, stationary, and, of course, pharmacy needs. Forks also has an active community theatre troupe and a newly opened Rainforest Arts Center, designed in cooperation with the architectural design school at the University of Washington. Peninsula College offers courses leading to two and four-year degrees along with sponsoring cultural events.


The Outdoors

Forks is a gateway to hiking and backpacking in the Olympic Mountains and the Pacific Ocean beaches. Within short drives are Shi Shi Beach, rated the best wilderness beach by the Travel Channel, and Ruby Beach which hosts an easy to navigate creekside trail leading to a pristine, driftwood and sea stack adorned ocean adventure. From there, visit Queets, the Hoh Rain Forest, and La Push. Outfitters abound if you are inclined to hunt Roosevelt Elk or fish for steelhead in the Calawah River or Coho salmon in the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

The Community

Forks has events to inspire and delight year round.

If you are inclined toward romance and the macabre, Forks is home, of course, to Stephanie Meyers’ Twilight series of novels and films. Take a tour of Edward, Bella, and Jacob’s adventures through tours in Forks and nearby La Push.
