The Hall of Mosses was the only trail we decided to go on, since we had limited time. The maples covered with inches of moss are just unreal! Moss everywhere! On the trees, on the ground, in the water. Just unbelievable. The trail is easy, and flat. So unique and beautiful.

If your looking for an easy trail that very scenic this is it. The tree's were huge and the moss hanging from everything was beautiful . The trail is a little under a mile long and not a lot of hills. There is tons of photo ops and easy enough children can do this trail as well

This is an amazing place where you can imagine that there are dinosaurs around the corner. Giant trees, beautiful moss, and a rushing mountain river. The main walk is very easy for the first 8 miles long the river with almost no elevation change. After a small waterfall, the trail starts to rasie in elevation. Well worth the visit.

Such a unique place was this that words can't even begin to describe its beauty. It was like something from a place back in time, where you wouldn't have been at all surprised to see a dinosaur pass by. Our family loved seeing the beautiful tall trees and lush ferns everywhere. The hike through was just right in length for... More

The Rainforest is beautiful and the trees are big but mostly the rainforests we saw reminded us of MS where we are from-just bigger trees. But, lovely walks and would totally recommend. If you are trying to decide Hoh or Quinault then I recommend Hoh. The reason is the river. We hiked to 2 different parts of the river-easy flat... More

We have been here several times and never get tired of walking the two designated trails as it is so unique. Parking area seems ample but it wouldn't hurt to get here early.

About 18 miles off the main road to reach the visitor center. There are several very easy trails that take you to the heart of the rain forest. Absolutely worth the time, so don't miss it!

The one trend I have noticed about everything in Olympic National Park is get to where you want to go EARLY. Take advantage of people wanting to be lazy. I learned this early on and was able to truly take advantage of the beauty in the area, and as I leave these great places and see the huge line of... More

As we took the longer of the two little hikes in the Hall of Mosses, we felt like we were in the Twilight movie. Moss, trees, dappled sunlight, soft earth, little creeks, whispering wind. There were old trees, some of which had fallen many, many years ago. These trees died but from their fallen 30 foot trunks, hundreds of little... More

Where else do you get to walk through a beautiful lush rainforest? The hiking trails have a wide range from easy to more difficult. A must see as part of our gorgeous country.
