We did the Hall of Mosses Nature Trail 0.8 mile loop. It was a very easy and very beautiful hike. We were there in late September in a drought year and it was still fantastically beautiful. You can imagine in a forest with everything covered with moss. Check out the attached photo.

Wonderful place for a hike! It is definitely a popular place and we passed people coming and going, but it was small inconvenience to experience such a beautiful landscape. It felt like being transported back a millennium to days of dinosaurs.

I enjoyed the challenges on the hike, getting around small pools of water, up and down hills, enough to make it interesting but not difficult. Definitely have hiking shoes or something you don't mind getting dirty.

It's a gift to have our national parks and to be able to experience the diversity of our country!

You may ask, why only four stars? Before I answer, let's review the experience itself. The Hoh Rain Forest consists of developed trails through meandering rain forest. These experiences were worthy of 10 Stars! I will forever remember this one view looking down at the clearest water I'd ever seen, with grass undulating in the current. I spent a lot of time just letting this in. The reason for the less than perfect review is that this was a highly impacted site, meaning there were lots and lots of people on the trails. It made this wide open experience feel slightly congested. We were hoping that by going post-Labor Day we'd miss the crowds. Still, don't let this minor criticism keep you from visiting. The Park Service has done a great job of bringing the Pacific Northwest rain forest alive in just a few, short trails.

My family (husband, 4 year old daughter, me) decided to make the drive for a day trip to Olympic NP from Seattle and Hoh was #1 on our list. It did not disappoint! We did the Hall of Mosses loop and spent about 90 minutes enjoying the stunning natural beauty. It rained the whole time but this did not detract from the experience at all. The biggest drawback is due to parking vs. amount of people trying to visit. We went on a Tuesday in September and had to wait in line about 30 minutes for a parking spot, so keep that in mind. We did get there around noon so that might be peak time, but coming from Seattle in the morning snd making a few coastal stops first, it was the earliest we could get there.

We came here at about 2:30 one day. We had to wait approximately 45 minute to an hour to get in to park. From there it was a nice hike through the rain forest. Lots of gorgeous sites, trees and old tree growth.

Outstanding day trip out of Forks. There is riverbank restoration and road construction projects that stop you in a few places, but you're in the rain forest, be chill.

My first experience to see and feel the rain forest. Since we were early, we did not wait. Hiked both paths.

We loved walking in the Hall of Mosses! There were some places where it just seemed magical to be in all the moss and ferns. We saw a banana slug and a giant elk that was blocking the path and we had to wait for him to move to continue. The walk took us about an hour, but that was with time taking pictures and waiting for the elk to move. We got there at 9:30 and got right in, but when we left an hour later there was a large line already. If you can't get there early I would suggest coming back in the evening to avoid the line.

Very accessible trails. Drive in is beautiful. But arrive early or be prepared to wait for a parking spot. However, despite the crowds the rangers did a good job of keeping the wait for parking organized.
