Went to forest and it is other worldly, the neon colored moss and beautiful surroundings made me feel we were on another planet. Took a trip around a lake there near a Inn and an elk and its baby crossed the road. Really amazing place.

Needed more time here. So much to see and experience. Lots of places to walk/hike and see the beautiful rain forest.

We turned off the 101 on to Upper Hoh rd for the lengthy drive to the rainforest, it was raining on the way there that turned to snow the further we went in. The place was covered in snow when we arrived and very beautiful to look at, really quiet and peaceful. I definitely would go back when it is... More

What an awesome place, totally out of this world. The day we visited it was a bit drizzly but somehow that seemed to be how is was supposed to be. Not very crowded and the trails were laid out well and gave some of the best picture taking opportunities I've ever had. I'm a geocacher and there were several in... More

It feels like you go into a jungle! Loved the little hikes through the Hoh Rain Forest. Washington sure has a large variety of things to offer visitors!

Having traveled to the Olympic Peninsula in Washington state for the first time, our major destination and adventure were walking through and photographing the Olympic National Rain Forest. I have been in heavily rained areas, and in many forests (including The Black Forest in Germany,) but I had never been to a tropical nor temperate rain forest. We couldn’t go... More

We visited the Hoh Rain Forest in Olympic National Park after a heavy snow. The trails were beautiful with the hanging moss, the addition of snow, and the sun shining through both. While the trails were snow covered and somewhat icy at points we had no difficulty traversing the loop trail and saw a number of other hikers. The visitor... More

The Hoh Rain Forest is located on the west side of Olympic National Park approximately 31 miles (50k) from Forks and is reached by taking Hwy 101 south for 13 miles (21k) and then east on Upper Hoh Road for 18 miles (29k). It is one of the premier destinations within Olympic National Park and also one of the handful... More

We tried driving into the Hoh Rain Forrest and hiking the shorter trails at the end of December 2015. We were in a mid-sized sedan and ended up having to turn around about 5 miles before reaching the visitor center because of the snow and ice on the road (which is very narrow and winding). We were really sad about... More

Camped a night in Hoh. Did Walked the Spruce Trail & the Hall of Mosses. The vegetation is extremely breath-taking. I wish I had more time in Olympic in general. I'll definitely be making a trip back to see other parts of the park. Probably my 2nd favorite NP I've visited!
