We spent the whole day travelling around the Olympic peninsula, traveling up to the top of some very high, scenic mountains, and along the Pacific Coast, and into the Hoh Rain Forest. A highlight of Hoh Rain Forest was standing next to a Spruce tree...More

The drive to the Hoh itself is beautiful. We even saw a black bear scurrying off into the forest from the road on our way in which made my day. Ample parking was available. 50 shades of green surround you through out this forest's trail....More

Good for exploring by yourself or with family. Peaceful, green, lush, and tranquil. One of my favorite go-to in WA. 3-4 hours drive from Seattle.

What a wonderful experience! The drive is long, take snacks or you’ll end up having to go to Forks like we did. It’s worth every minute. It’s $30 for a vehicle. Plenty to see and do along the way.

I hiked a couple of trails here and wow...this place is beautiful. Teeming with plants, mushrooms, and moss. Even in the rain, the hikes were worth doing. As the plants provide so much coverage, the rain did not bother me.
