Things are a bit spendy in the shops. The views & trails are amazing! Bring a picnic lunch & go for a hike! They even have easy trails for those of us that can't handle vigorous hikes!

Look, when you go here you need to be prepared; everything is deep dark green or shades thereof. The tree trunks and rocks are covered with moss and the water looks green as well. IT IS WET. It was so beautiful and smelled so good that you wanted to cry.

There are lots of great trails, but lately they've been a bit overrun with day hikers. If you want to feel like you're far from civilization, find one of the longer hikes and only do part of it, rather than a hike everyone sees and thinks "I can do that in an afternoon."

You will be amazed at the flora and fauna of the park. We drove for three hours and wished we had longer!

Wow, what huge trees are found in the Olympic National Forest. There were elk to be found and the traffic was minimal. It was a wonderful day and the air was crisp and clear. Some of the mountains were interesting in shape.

Excellent walk. Mostly level, wide paths deep in the rain forest. It had small foot bridges over streams and it's very relaxing. We had just come from a rain Forest walk in Alaska, and honestly this was nicer.

We drove here from Bellingham,WA while on an assignment and thought it was okay. We have gone to several national parks and thought this one was just okay. Perhaps we did not go to the right attraction in the park. We did the hoh rainforest trails and they were cool. The mossy trees were neat. But we had to get... More

A must see even if it often rains. Throughout the winter season, rain falls frequently in the Hoh Rain Forest, contributing to the yearly total of 140 to 170 inches (or 12 to 14 feet!) of precipitation each year. Spend more than a day here! The park is very large.

It's astonishing to me that there can be a rain forest this far north. If it has been cold, however, be careful driving. We hit a patch of black ice and came within inches of going off a cliff backwards.
