Last July I drove to the Rain Forest only to come away disappointed. You would be better off spending time at Ruby Beach, Olympic National Park, Orca watching, Cascades etc.

Very short hikes available for those who want a quick introduction to the forest, there is also a longer hike which would likely take at least half a day. We did both short hikes and found it enchanting and wonderful. Can't wait to go back to do the longer hike, as well as the several day trip to Mount Olympus.... More

The next day, trees near the road in fell and blocked the road. This place is amazing beyond description. It is remote, mysterious, and very, very green. Everything is festooned in green moss. It is like Jurassic Park come to life. I would not have been surprised to see a T. rex coming down the trail. The trees are huge.... More

We drove over to Forks from Port Angeles and then headed to the Hoh visitor centre. The Upper Hoh Road to the visitor centre is an amazing drive with the forest closing in all the time. The centre is closed at this time of year but there are info boards for the trails etc. We only had a little while... More

The trails through the park are beautiful. One one of the park trails, you cross a river with super clear water with bright green plants waving below. Many nurse logs to check out.

The name says it all. I went in July 2013 and could not get enough pictures. Ensure you are prepared when walking the trails with a emergency kit, including a bear bell. The trails are endless.

We took a one hour hike along a trail in the rain forest and really enjoyed it. Perfect length. Despite no staff at the visitor center or anywhere in the area, we felt safe. The trail was well maintained and beautiful.

I've visited here both times I went to ONP, and was not disappointed either time. Even though I went in the off-season both times (end of October and mid-January), I was still pleased with the plethora of towering trees all over the Rain Forest, and the Hoh River trail is quite pleasant. I recommend bring a book to read, as... More

We just did a side trip and hike and was amazed at the sizes of trees. The banana slugs were another interesting feature. Would have loved to see some Roosevelt Elk....maybe next time.
