Lovely place!

Visited here and actually found a home bordering the forest. Tall, green trees, that no matter how far up I look, couldn't see the tops. I loved all the trails, and even my... read more

Visited here and actually found a home bordering the forest. Tall, green trees, that no matter how far up I look, couldn't see the tops. I loved all the trails, and even my teens enjoyed the surroundings. Visit!

I the 0.8 mile long Hall of Mosses loop trail to explore the Hoh Rain Forest. My imagination worked overtime seeing all sorts of shapes and creatures in the moss and limbs of the trees. I felt like I was transported to a magical world. Even though the Hall of Mosses trail is short in distance, I spent almost an... More

Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Not much wildlife which was a bit disappointing for me but still beautiful.

Hoh Rain Forest is an amazing spot. You can definitely see some of the affects of the drought along the Pacific Coast. I would still recommend it. The drive is not that long, but you can't go too fast so it does take about 30 minutes one way. The drive is very nice too and gives you a preview of... More

Plain and simple, this spot was stunning. We hiked to five mile island, and,while that's pretty far for me and tore my feet up something fierce, it was worth every single second!!!! Came in the summer when everything was dry and it was pretty but I would love to come back during the wet season as I've been told it... More

This wasn't what I expected a rainforest to be like. It was really just like hiking in a woods you'd see anywhere. Possibly it's different at other times of year? We did enjoy it, though.

We happened to visit during a very hot and dry spell, so it did not appear as "wet" as we expected, nevertheless, it's beautiful. The Hall of Mosses trail is a fairly easy walk through a forest dripping with various mosses. We were lucky enough to see an owl peering down at us from his perch high above. It was... More

We were working our way through the park and went here after reading how great it was. First, it is about. 25 min ride off of hwy 101. There is a small information station. The trails were easy but I was not blown away by what we saw. It may be because they have had a really dry season

Th Rain forest was very nice. We did 2 walks including the hall of mosses. Quite informative. I would recommend not going there but rather take the trail down to 2nd beach. It is very nice and you get the added bonus of a beautiful beach and it is free.

The greenest, more luscious place I have ever seen. The falls are magnificent. We walked through forests with 1000 years old trees, reaching up to 300 feet in height and over 70 feet in diameter. The ground vegetation was so densely packed that it felt like walking on foam, with moss, lichen, and ferns covering every single inch of space.... More
