We had very little time to explore so we chose Hall of mosses trail. Its about. 8 miles long. Some up and down. Amazing scenery. We went around 5 pm so there were many mosquitoes. I would like to stay longer and do the other trail too which is about a mile and a half. We made it through the... More

The beaches and mountains are great, but this rain forest is the signature feature of Olympic. The trails are accessible for anyone and provide easy access to an ecosystem found nowhere else in the U.S. Come early or late to increase your chance of seeing birds & wildlife and to avoid mid-day crowds.

The actual hike and view points are about 18 miles off 101, but it is worth the drive. Not many people get to see a rain forest as well as a river that is glacial melt fed. It was peaceful and pretty.

I have been to the Hoh Rain Forest many times and each time I am in awe of the wonder of it all! Lots of trails, most of them are easy walks. Don't miss the Hall of Mosses! For getting as much rain there as it does, we have never been rained on.

A wonderful place for walking. If you love moss, this is the place to go. Parts of it are like a hall of moss with moss on the ground, the sides of trees and hanging from branches overhead. Also, if you want to take a 20 mile hike, you can see the Mount Olympus glacier.

We loved walking in the forest - during a hot summer day is was beautifully cool. The trails were fairly easy for two over 65-ers :). A nice place to visit especially on a hot summer day!

We did not visit at an optimal time. When I learned this area receives 140-160 inches of rain a year, I expected to get wet. Instead it was sunny and warm. It has been a dry year and the mosses were closed with a brownish or a faded, stressed green appearance. I would love to see the place after a... More

We loved the Hoh!!! After doing the two short loop trails we hiked to "Toms Creek" to see the waterfall. The terrain is not level or handicap accessible, but the views are amazing. I wish we had time to go further on the trail.

This picturesque setting can only be found in the Pacific Northwest, the Hoh rainforest feels like it would be something out of Jurassic park. With beautiful old growth trees covered in long moss, it's a unique part of the world. A must see if you are headed to the Olympic Peninsula.

The trees are huge and truly amazing. It was beautiful, like a story book fantasy. The trails are nicely maintained. Great trails for families.
