Wow, what a memory of our visit here! We hiked about eleven miles round-trip on a trail and saw some scenic waterfalls and some unbelievably HUGE and beautiful trees and other sights. Bring your raincoat, because.. this is the rain forest. We passed some folks that weren't prepared and about a half hour later just as we were a few... More

Mosses on trees, green pond, winding trails and rain presented surprise after surprise. A must visit place worthy the drive. It is like a movie set for sci-fi movies.

While there, the skies changed multiple times. Light rain, then drizzle, then light rain, then pouring rain, then sunshine. Enjoyed the Hall of Mosses Trail, which is short and scenic. Particularly liked the amazingly green pond towards the beginning, followed by the moss laden trees in the Maple Grove, and the majestic trees throughout. Experiencing it in the pouring rain... More

Rain forest near a snow capped mountain, near an ocean, near bear, near moose. This place had it all.

South fork of the hoh river trail has a lot of solitude and mossy beauty! A shorter hike, 6 miles roundtrip. Quiet and away formt he crowds of the better known Hoh interpretive center.

Specifically went to "hall of mosses" Took surprisingly long to get there - long windy road off the motorway. Visitor centre was closed. Undoubtably beautiful but if you haven't seen this sort of thing before. Yes there are lots of mosses draped over trees. Genuinely is interesting. In my home Scotland, there is lots of mosses on many trees!!!

The Hoh Rainforest was an interesting area to visit. We hiked a trail for a couple of hours; which afforded unusual views of dense rain forest, and heavy growths' of moss hanging from every tree limb. Be sure to stay together, and keep your bearings; as it is easy to get confused near the end of the Hoh Rain Forest,... More

This place is awesome. It was the one day we had rain during our trip but it was manageable rain. Words really can't describe how otherworldly this place is. The drive to the rainforest from 101 is stunning in it's own right. It travels along the Hoh river which is a milky slate blue due to the runoff from the... More

Anywhere you go on the Olympia Peninsula is a visual treat. The drive through the Hoh Rain Forest is no exception. At the end of the road is some walking trails of different lengths that are not to be missed. You can choose which trail to take depending on how far you want to walk. Along the way are placards...

The temperate rainforest is so unique and worth spending time hiking the trails. We chose Hall of Moss because of recuperating from broken ankle, but even that relatively short and easy trail had many interesting things to see.
