We were there mid-June.The Hoh rain-forest is a bit of a drive, but well worth it if you are on the Olympic Peninsula. It sits between the Pacific Ocean and the Cascade Mountains. The signage was limited, but we simply engaged with forest rangers as we walked through the mossy damp paths. Even with other people around, we were able... More

Loved the foggy, green, mossy views. Be prepared with bugspray, appropriate footware and something to cover your camera or other electronics at a moments notice.

We're proud paying annual passholders of the National Parks, and wouldn't you know it, they don't charge you in the winter. Dang it. I paid for that and I wanted to flash my pass at the gate and get that look of approval from the ranger. Not just that, but I didn't get to buy my t-shirts and stuff to... More

This is a great destination in Olympic NP. Rain forest ecosystem with moss everywhere. So much greenery and fresh air is not only a treat to the eye but hiking in the forest is very refreshing.

Go to Hoh Rain forest early in the morning. Lots of people know about this place and around noon it is crowded and that makes it loose it's extraordinary charm. On the road to the forest, there used to be a giant Sitka Spruce Tree but it fell down after a storm last year. I would stop at the tree... More

We went here on New Year's Day 2017, and there was a beautiful snow on the ground which made the place even more magical. We will definitely return again during warmer months.

A visit to the Hoh Rain Forest is always on the agenda for visitors to the Olympic Peninsula. It is located about 100 miles driving from Sequim. This is one of the few rain forests in the US and said to be the largest. If you forget your raincoats you can get inexpensive gear at the site.

Be transported to a South American rain forest in your imagination - enormous sized trees, undergrowth providing fresh berries for hikers, a bridge over active springs, springy paths on which to so comfortably walk that you feel air-borne, fairly level terrain, warning of cougar sightings may be a bit off-putting but instructions are provided on how to share their space,...

The Hoh Rain Forest is beautiful, and it is worth the visit. It is not the only place to see the moss covered trees in the area but the hike on Hoh River trail (separate review)makes it particularly picturesque. As the name implies it rains, and sometimes it's a lot but the rain only adds to the charm. Some of... More

The day I chose to go to hoh it decided to snow. Who would have thought snow in a rainforest? Although I feel I did not get the real rainforest feel since it snowed, I still got an amazing experience. I did the hall of mosses and the spruce nature trail. The moss on the trees was amazing. These were... More
