Myself and my partner hiked the Hoh River Trail to five mile island and back as we wanted a longer trail than the Hall of Mosses, but one we could do in a couple of hours. This didn't disappoint! The whole trail was stunning, especially the views over the river themselves, where we stopped for lunch. I believe the trail... More

Hiked the two small trails. These were pretty and quite doable for younger kids. Total of about 2 miles for both trails.

We rafted the Hoh River with Annie from Peak 6 outfitters. Annie is very experienced and did a great job with 4 adults and 2 children. The river is low this year.

Glad I visited during early June b/c I don't think there will be much water during summer due to low snow and rain during past winter. Cross the Hoh River throughout the park. Enjoyed it while hiking the Spruce Nature Trail. Water is SO clear throughout the park. Since not much water it's easy to see all the rocks and... More

The Hoh River is a pleasant enough river that runs from the Olympic mountains to the ocean. As you drive along Highway 101, you cross it one or twice and then drive alongside it for about 10 miles or so. If you drive to the inland rainforest area, you'll see it often. It's a light blue chalky color which is... More

We found the area along the Hoh River to be quite unique, and very rewarding in the way of natural beauty, especially all of the mosses draped from the trees!

The Hoh River was tranquil and more like a large bubbling brook in August, but there are indications during the ice melt in the spring the river could be a roaring torrent. The road to Hoh Rain Forest crosses the river at several junctures and we enjoyed the views.

It was a nice average river that runs along beside the Hoh Rainforest and crosses Hwy 101. We did not fish or get in the water. Still a nice scene.
