We were just off the road, and thrilled to be watching a herd of elk (mostly moms and young) across the river. Then, we heard some noise behind us, and assumed it was more people; but it was a large bull with an impressive rack. We stood still and he just looked at us for a minute or two before... More

We stopped along the river during our hike in the Hoh Rain Forest. It was great to sit down and put our feet in the water. Was also a fun spot for skipping rocks and such. The scenery is beautiful as well, and its interesting how much different it looks from the Rain Forest a short distance away.

The Hoh River Visitor Center is in a special place. We arrived later in the day and had a striking experience. Three black tail deer met us on the House of Moses trail. They were so comfortable, we had to back up to maintain a safe distance. Leaving the park, we saw a full sized Elk on the road down... More

This is a gorgeous region of our planet and should not be missed. I read a book, "The Other" by David Guterson that mainly took place here. It was so good to visit this special place after reading this excellent book. The trees are so huge and this world is so green and lush.

Whether you are visiting the Olympic National Park as a tourist or as a fisherman, the Hoh River is a good stop on your visit. Big, brawling and relatively untouched - enjoy the bald eagles that cruise the river and when it's steelhead or salmon run time, this is the place to be.

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.

Camped close to this river and it was gorgeous. the river was quite low for June but that is to be expected with the low snowpack.
