It's a very remote place, but it's worth a drive. A fairy tale enchanted forest with all moss covered trees, sparking water all over, elks, streams, grass ... Magical!

An easy walk through this forest and kind of a Hansel and Gretal type of feeling. Interesting moss hanging from the trees and trees growing on top of dead trees. I really enjoyed it

This location was two hours from our hotel. We debated whether to drive here, but did it and are so glad. Beautiful moss dripping off trees. Easy trails, Elk were around the visitor center. This is a must see!

Great place to walk amongst the Sitka Spruce and take in the tranquillity of this natural forest. Trails are well marked and there are plenty of picnic benches to relax.

We spent an afternoon here doing some of the loop walks with our children. It's such an amazing place. We took loads of photographs, but they don't really do it justice. Whilst we were there we saw a bobcat lying in the sun.

Cody the dog and I made the Hoh Rainforest and were rewarded with Fall Color and Roosevelt Elk Sighting. While Cody isn’t allowed on trails we enjoyed the drive. We stayed in a wonderful cabin nearby on the Quileute Reservation.

Without doubt this is one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Under The Canopy of massive Douglas Firs are some large leaf maple trees. As the sunlight comes through the canopy, these maple trees light up and appear yellow that cannot be captured by...More

Sorry for the late response. The best nearby cabin would be Kalaloch Lodge which will also give you a fantastic vista of the ocean.

When I was there, the weather was quite warm and dry-- it was probably 75+F. Most rain falls outside of the summer months. As for insects, you might meet more tourists than mosquitoes! But, always good to bring bug... More
