The Hoh Rain Forest is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited and one of the highlights of visiting Washington State. The heavy moss hanging from the vine maples and the dense old growth fir, spruce and hemlock forests give an entirely other worldly feel to someone walking off the beaten path. If you are there in...

We had ventured here about 7 years ago. This place has awesome trees and moss, some interesting mushrooms. There are several different trails to explore from mini (1/2 mile) to a more challenging 12 mile hike. hey are currently in the process of constructing a new visitors center. There are some awesome sights to see.

Visited on November 9 and just the perfect amount of rain to add to the experience. The drive in is a long but worth it. Hiking trails are clean and well maintained. Worth every penny to get in. We were on a business trip, my co-owner and myself. We travel professionally and since we were going to be in Forks... More

way out of the way but the forest is amazing. Old growth forest with huge trees, long hanging moss, and so quiet. A wonderful find you must see to appreciate

Had never been to a rain forest, so didn't know what to expect. Happened upon this gem in between showers on a cool Sunday afternoon in late October. Not too many other visitors at the site, which might explain why nobody was collecting a fee at the entrance to the park. Pleasantly surprised at how beautiful it was even this... More

This hike is about 3/4 mile total but there is so much to see it took us close to a hour and a half to complete it. We were just lucky that it was not raining while we were there. A umbrella would be highly recommended

The best time to be at the Hoh, is the off season, when it is wet! Loop A is the only available camping, in the off season, there is firewood for sale in loopB, near the restrooms. Primitive camping, flush toilets, water is available. Walk the spruce trail, and the Hall of Moss, hike the River trail, as far as... More

Spending time in the Hoh will do more for your spirit than you can possibly imagine... You'll feel like you're in another world, and whether it's pouring rain (it IS a rain forest?) or blue sky-it would be hard to find a place outside of an oxygen bar that allows you to breath this easily... Perfect trail system and a... More

While we were disappointed that the visitor center was closed due to remodeling, we did enjoy our visit to the Hoh Rainforest. How green and lush everything was totally surprised us! The park ranger explained how all the moss on the trees exists and actually helps the trees. The Sitka Spruce trees were so so large, it was spectacular! Everywhere... More

It is very humid and well treated area. Has lots of great spots for a rest to sit and talk as well as take pictures. Family time was nicely spent at several spots of the forest which is very still, quiet and peaceful. Thank you Lord for Your Creative hand.
