If you have mobility challenges, the hikes are not for you, although the visitors center has alot of information to check out instead. If you are a hiker, this is the place for you. The hiking trails range from 3/4 mile to 18 miles in distance. It was so neat to walk thru a rain forest although we had sunny... More

If you want to be close to nature, this is the place. The Hoh Rain Forest has two easy trails (more trails for die-hard hikers) that take you through spectacular areas. If you look close, you can see many kinds of birds, small mammals, and a fish or two. Be sure to read the signs posted along the way. Lots... More

I think a trip out to the Rain Forest should be mandatory for anyone who lives in the city's and bemoans the great state of Washington for the metropolitanization and over-logging. Granted we have lost alot, but we still have SO much! The Hoh Rain forest is a perfect example of the level of greatness within the pacific norhtwest

Do both loops and dress for bugs and wet weather. We saw someone in shorts and a tank top and they were swatting them away the whole time. The Hoh River is described as a milky blue color and that is the best description of the water. My favorite pic that I took was one of moss that had overtaken... More

Due to time constraints we only visited the nature trails in the Hoh Rainforest: The Hall of Mosses and The Spruce Trail. Both were beautiful. At the time the forest was experiencing a bit of a dry spell and hadn't seen a lot of rain for about two weeks prior to our arrival. in spite of the dry spell the... More

We have been to the Hoh Rainforest a couple of times and it is just a favorite of mine. It is so amazing that in 30 minutes from town you can be in such a different type of climate and so really cool. Take a rain jacket or umbrella cause it is a good chance you will get a little... More

I last visited the Hoh Rain Forest a few decades ago during a dry year so the wife, girls (10 and 13), and I were in awe of the lush vegetation on this visit. It is about a 20 mile drive east of Hwy 101, but the drive in is quite pretty, and a mile or two east of the... More

This place is gorgeous and shouldn't be missed. Lots of giant trees, lots of deep and long moss, fun and interesting rangers (shout out to Ranger Simon), salmon fry in the creek, interesting nurse trees and more. I kept waiting to see a dinosaur poking his head around the trees. (No such luck.)
