Visit , a lush, green wonderland of ferns, mosses, and trees that form a canopy covering much of the area. The temperate rainforest stretches 39 km (24 mi) along the Hoh River, and it is partially contained and protected by Olympic National Park. Explore this river valley, created by glaciers thousands of years ago, via the various trails throughout the forest. For a short hike, try the Hall of Mosses Trail, a 1.3 km (.8 mi) journey, or walk the 1.9 km (1.2 mi) Spruce Nature Trail. If you are interested in a longer adventure, take on the 27.8 km (17.3 mi) Hoh River Trail. Stop by the visitor center for more information on the trails and diverse wildlife you will have the chance to see. Campsites are available in the park, but be prepared for heavy rain depending on the time of year.

Olympic National Park is spectacular. We drove in to Hoh Rain Forest to see another aspect of the park. It is stunning. You can choose from several trails - we picked the 3/4 mile Mosses trail and it was a perfect example. Amazing enormous trees covered in moss. Streams and interesting views everywhere.
The Hoh is beautiful, the visitor center is not. This is a must hike for every backpack enthusiast! All the way to Olympus if you're able! Go in June for wildflowers and wildlife. Take bear cans as there are some big black bear out here. My last trip, we saw a 350+ pounder.
