Hoh River, Olympic National Park

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 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

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.

One thing that amazes me about Olympic National Park (other than its captivating beauty) is the diversity it has within such a relatively small area. The day before we visited the Hoh River section of the park we were hiking on Alpine meadows, with jagged, snowy peaks as a backdrop. The Hoh RIver experience was almost the complete opposite.

Breathtaking scenic route and hiking trails. We saw quite a few Roosevelt Elk and a huge Bald Eagle fishing along the river. We walked along a trail at the campground (located at the very end of road) and I really felt like we were in the movie "FernGully"

It was pretty. It was very dry due to the lack of rain. So we walked in the river bed a long away it was very peaceful. If you love rocks you can find several different rocks for your collection. I had to stop picking them up because my luggage back home would have been over weight by a ton.

Take your fishing pole... or better yet, take a tour guide and a raft. This river is amazing and the views are second to none. I wonder f we could've camped here..... I think so!

Even though we went to the Quinault Rain Forest the Hoh River and rain forest was beautiful and a different experience for my family. I would recommend this to everyone who is thinking of a vacation in the area.
