Green, green, and more green
Sep 2020
Probably the greenest place I've ever seen in my entire life, yes simultaneously the most colorful, with so many shades of green. Insanely peaceful and relaxing hike. Take in the trees and mosses and enjoy.

Lovely place to visit! Recommended
Oct 2020
We did the Spruce trail. it was quiet. A bit longer than some of the others closer to the visitors center and MUCH quieter - no screaming children. It was a fascinating trail with beautiful trees and sign to explain what you are looking at. We even say a bob cat in the brush. It was just sitting and watching. This is worth the 18 mile drive in. The visitors center is not open right now due to Covid-19 but there is a ranger behind plexi-glass to answer questions. He confirmed we saw a bob cat.

Unique history of centuries-old trees
Sep 2020 • Couples
The most unique were the decaying nursing trees from which new trees sprung. Also many trees seem to be standing on their roots. The Spruce Nature Trail, though longer at 1.2 miles, was actually the easier trail as the path was mostly flat. Some of the tree configurations were intriguing. Though the Hall of Mosses Trail was only 0.8 miles, it had more of a gradient, more steps, and rocky places. I had seen rainforests before but this trail had it's own beauty, especially the Maple Grove. The creek was crystal clear.

Lovely forest stroll
Sep 2020
We enjoyed walking through the Hoh Rain Forest and observing what I called 'creepy trees' whose branches are covered in moss. It was a tranquil way to spend some quality time together.

Enchanted Forest

An enchanted forest. Simply gorgeous throughout the entire hike. The trails were relatively flat and easy. We were not disappointed.

So Lush & Green!
Aug 2020
This was one of our favorite hikes while in Olympic National Park. We took the Hall of Mosses and were not disappointed. We even had a good laugh that it rained the entire time we were in the rainforest. Everything is so lush and green and covered in moss and the trees are so big. We were excited to see a banana slug, too. We visited in late August and the visitor center was closed, although the restrooms were open. The rangers were outside and we had a nice chat with them before our hike. The Hoh is a bit of a drive to get to, but we thought it was definitely worthwhile. Parking was a bit of a challenge, as it was fairly crowded the day we visited--we had to circle the lot a couple of times to get a spot.

Enchanting experience
Aug 2020 • Friends
We loved walking through the Hall of Mosses. Beautiful drive getting to the parking area and only a short walk to the trails which are to the right of the visitors center, which isn’t open due to Covid. Restrooms are open. There were a lot of people, but most wore masks and gave each other space on the one way trails. Only the Olympic National Park $30 entrance fee. If you’re going to Mt. Ranier National Park also, you may want to get the $80 pass that gets you and anyone with you in for free at any national park nationwide for a year from your purchase date.

Okay
Aug 2020 • Family
This place is beautiful and well kept. We took the Hall of Mosses trail and there were beautiful moments but overall was not as heavily impressed as I thought I would be. We did come across bear feces though... extra excitement I did not need! Haha, but the trail itself was easy to get along (there are steep inclines but very short) and the creek you have to go across has the most clear and beautiful water! Still worth doing.

I thought it would be better...
Aug 2020 • Solo
So I read the hype and had been looking forward to visiting the Hoh for a number of years; honestly after hiking for several days further in the Olympic national Park it didn’t seem too much different than further East. Quite a drive to get to. But it was on the way out. The hall of misses trail disappointed but the spruce nature trail was better.
