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.

We walked the Hall of Mosses trail during our stay. This is a popular hike and it’s easy to see why. It is a fairly easy walk and gives a good number of signs to help learn a bit about this rain forest. Take your time and really looking around on this trail, it is about the small things here....

Get a guide for the plants and animals, so you’ll know what you’re experiencing. Then slow down, watch the light, look at the small things. Find a nurse-log and spend 15 minutes looking all the tiny little things growing and living on it. Look for faces in the trees.

Be sure to visit this access into the rain forest. There is a fine, short, side trail through an extraordinary patch of shaggy, mossy forest near the trail head. Be sure to walk that loop before continuing onto the main trail for as long a walk as you would like.

Nevertheless, it's a been there don't that kind of touristic attraction. Cleary different. Cleary interesting. But, if you don't really need a walk, it's only an hour deal.

20 years ago my husband and I began our honeymoon by exploring Hoh. It was a misty and solitary stroll even though it was a warm sunny day outside of the forest. This summer we went back and were met with throngs of tourists meandering around a loop trail. The crowds combined with the hot dry day made the visit... More

We only had a limited time for our visit to Olympic National Park as part of a 14 day drive from Texas to Seattle and back. So we chose HOH Rain Forest as one of our stops and took an easy hike (Hall of Mosses) of 45 minutes to get the feel of what a rain forest feels like. The... More

We were disappointed we drove so far to see this If you have limited time, it is definitely better spent in the hurricane ride area on mountain trails... at least in our opinion. This is a pretty area, but pales in comparison to redwood fog forests. Also, the visitor center area and short trails around it were crowded and it... More

We hiked part of the Hoh River trail and the Hall of Mosses trail on a rare sunny sky blue day and it was beautiful. The bright sun really set off the various shades of green. The Sitka Spruce were awesome and towered hundreds of feet above us. We started out going up the Hoh River trail to a waterfall... More
