As you drive into Hoh Rain Forest you can begin to feel as though elves or fairies will be seen dancing among the trees heavy laden with the draping green moss. Heading down the easily accessed and traversed trails you become surrounded by large and dreamy trees and other forest growth. The meadow path also takes you to the glacier... More

Why is HOH Rainforest a must visit rain or shine? Simply because it is a stunningly beautiful example of a West Coast Rainforest. You won't see many easily accessible examples like this anywhere else in North America. Expect rain and be prepared for it but consider yourself very lucky to get a sunny day. It can happen but this area... More

We visited in late September and the weather was perfect! This place was so magical! Everything was so green and at any moment I thought the trees were going to come to life! Definitely worth the long drive. We did the Hall of Mosses and Spruce hikes. Very easy hikes...take your time to take in all the beauty large and... More

We were really lucky with our weather....it was a bit drizzly and misty but with a bright sun breaking through the clouds every now and then which made this place feel absolutely magical! We decided to start with the flat walk around the Hall of Mosses and WOW what a place....stunning, mystical and beautiful - nature at its best. We... More

We traveled to the Hoa rainforest I a drizzly day which turned out to be just as it should have been! Walking through a rain forest of huge ferns moss and the giant trees left us feeling more respect for this great earth and country

This area has easy hikes through lush rain forests. Ranger-led hikes are available. We started with a ranger-led group but felt it was going way too slow so went off on our own.

We'd expected more of a rain forest experience, but the Hoh Forest is mostly on the flat, and after a particularly hot late summer, the forest was there, but it wasn't foggy and dripping with moisture. It felt more like a preserved rain forest than a real one.Later on, in Oregon, we visited a rain forest on the mountainside, drenched... More

Very easy walk. Goooo slooooowww and drink it in. Look at the same place from different perspectives and it is a whole different world each time. It was a wonderful quiet walk when we came around a corner to find ourselves face to face with an elk. We were quiet and still, he continued to graze. It was an amazing... More

Been to other rainforests in Hawaii and this one did not quite live up to the hype. Nice and beautiful trail which was easy to navigate-a plus with small children.
