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.

Hoh Rain Forest is one of the nicest places I have ever seen in the world. You have to be here very early to beat the crowds but it is worth losing some sleep for it. After 11AM this place is so crowded with people,...More

Hoh Rainforest was like an entirely different world. This stop was our favorite place in Olympic National Park. There were several walking paths that were well marked and pretty easy. We could have spent the entire day here. There were pretty decent bathrooms, but no...More
