I've been taking my kids to the Hoh rainforest for 25 years, and we always find something new to "discover." Nurse logs are a constant source of wonder to kids of all ages - fascinating to see how the forest renews itself.

We wanted some out door experience, even though it was raining (as is to be expected in the rain forrest). We chose the short hike of about 1.6 miles. This hike has a beautiful array of rain forrest foliage, a river and some small waterfalls.

Trails were very well marked and very informative. Many trails to choose from that varied in length, difficulty and sites. They are totally awesome.

We did a 3 1/2 mile loop which was a pretty well maintained and easy trail. The grounds were frozen in some areas where the sun hadn't touched which made a pretty winter wonderland scene.

Beautiful short walk has a lot of variety. Short but some steps. Big trees, ferns, moss, and mushrooms.

We had a wonderful hike through the rain forest. It is a good hike, with some hilly areas. We would go again if we go back.

I loved walking in the woods. This is a short trail but if you are looking for a longer hike there are other options to keep you going for quite a while. Last time I was here, I took a short excursion off the "Rain Forest Nature Trail" to get a better look at the Wallaby Creek. There is a... More
