My husband and I planned to visit the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park, Washington. When we entered the park, the Ranger told us that the most popular attraction there was the Hall of Mosses. We arrived there mid-morning and walked along the Hall of Mosses. About a third of the way through this trail we encountered a male... More

Very easy hikes with pretty views. Worth a visit, especially if you've already paid for ONP as the pass is good for 1 week.

Breathtaking beauty every where you look. Take your time and enjoy the tranquility and majesty of nature. The weather was perfect...not too hot and sunny when we were here. Spend the day and let the tension seep away from your shoulders with every turn in the woods.

This place is absolutely worth a stop. The visitor center is under construction but there is a temporary one staffed by a ranger. You can get your NPS Passport stamped here (and other stations in the park) but even if you go after the ranger station is closed go for a hike. The trees are magnificent, the mosses create another... More

We visited in February of 2012 after having spent the night in Forks at a "Twilight" themed hotel. The drive alone is breathtaking! We spoke with the Park Ranger next to the wood burning stove for quite awhile before we ventured off on our magical journey through the forest. He was the most informative and interesting Ranger. He shared many... More

Breathtaking views and photo ops around every corner. They are currently renovating the visitor's center and rest rooms. Worth the drive for sure. There is also a little gift shop on the way in. Great prices and lots of name brand stuff.

Most walk both trails to get the full experience. They are similar but different it took about 1.5 hours to complete but a great walk. It's a ways back and you pass cows walking on the road, unfortunately the big spruce fell down but still worth a see.

This is a delightful hike; with many unique flowers, and fauna, And trees draped with colorful green moss everywhere. The trails are well maintained; however "don't get separated", as there are forks in the trail, and you want to stay together!

We live in the PNW, and even this forest was astonishing to us. We spent only a couple of hours in the forest, and I could have spent all day. I wish we had planned better, but there was so much to see while visiting the peninsula from Portland. We "hiked" (or strolled) along the "Hall of Mosses" trail -... More
