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.

The Trail along the river was a nice hike and it was a nice peaceful one at that. Go early in the morning if you can less hikers at least for us it was that way!!!

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.

The moss and ferns as well as the huge trees in weird shapes gave this area a magical feeling. We only walked the Hall of Mosses trail which did not include huge changes in elevation. There was a bit,it is not flat by any means but there are lots of benches and logs to take a short rest if needed.... More

Today we spent the day wandering the Hoh National Park - beautiful moss covered spruce and hemlock, the likes of which you will not see elsewhere. We took the ranger-guided tour at 2 pm given by Laura - she provided information on area rainfall, types of trees in the area, fungi and so much more. After that we walked the... More

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.

This is my favorite camping spot in this whole area. We have been there many times. Being in the rain forest you have to expect alot of rain, so come prepared.

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!
