Find a quiet time of year, week, or day to visit the rainforest. The trails are manageable for virtually anyone with good walking ability. My young daughter was stunned by the awesome size of everything in the forest. Early or late visits are probably best because parking tends to fill up. It is quite a long drive to the visitor's...

Truly a magical place. With over 120 inches of rain per year, the Hoh Rainforest is a magical variety of greens. Huge trees, ferns, grasses. Truly spectacular. At the visitor's center there are three trails. The moss trail is the shortest and most popular. The spruce is a little longer and the Hoh River trail which heads off for 15... More

The Hoh River Rain Forest offers car campers and the adventurous an opportunity to see old growth forest, elk, and brilliant stars. The more adventurous can apply for a pass and hike to the Blue Glacier, some 17.5 miles from the visitor center. If you want to know more, see the pictures that follow; car campers can see what they... More

You must really hike in the rain forest to appreciate the nature. First of all, conduct some research and find some readings prior to visiting the rain forest. The visitor centre offers good ideas on where and how to walk along the rain forest according to your time and stamina.

Went there after visiting quinault rain forest in the AM. Did the Hall of Moses and Spruce Nature Trail. The walks were very beautiful but crowded. Also found the parking tight on a weekend day (Sunday) when arriving close to 3:30 PM. Considered it to be slightly better than quinault rain forest in terms of scenery but both were very... More

This was a easy hike and relatively flat (Mosses). The size of the trees is impressive and it is interesting to learn more about their ecology. Pictures can't really capture it all.

This rain forest is one of the most interesting hikes I have done in visiting over 50 National Parks. Do not miss it!

Rangers were clueless as to how many cars they had let in. We got up to the visitor station and there were cars parked on the grass shoulder of the road for a hundred yards below the main (small) parking lot. The gate ranger assured me there was parking for my rig so we drove the 6 miles further and... More

Quite a drive to get there but well worth it! Great trail system through several ecosystems; walk them all if you can. Prepare to be amazed! A beautiful and inspiring part of a truly wonderful park.
