The diverse and dramatic Hoh Rain Forest is one of the most popular destinations on the Olympic Peninsula and beyond. Lush greenery abounds, thanks to an average 168 inches of annual rainfall.
Explore rushing rivers, tumbling waterfalls and miles of trails through dense rain and old-growth forests. Herds of Roosevelt elk accompany your views and world-class salmon and steelhead fishing beckons.
Glean some knowledge at the visitor center, pitch a tent on a mossy bed, walk a nature trail or venture beyond the beaten path. Experience the wonder of this one-of-a-kind spot.
HOH RAIN FOREST AREA ALERTS – Spring 2021
Hall of Mosses Trail Closures
The Hall of Mosses Trail will be closed during the scheduled dates listed in the table below. The work is anticipated to be complete by June 17, 2021. This project will repair sections of poor trail tread and improve drainage. Please expect noise and work activity on the Mini Loop Trail during work days as the trail crew will be using power carriers to transport gravel and work materials. The Mini Loop Trail, Spruce Nature Trail and Hoh River Trail will remain open during this trail project.
Upper Hoh Road Construction
Visitors to the Hoh Rain Forest should be aware of traffic delays due to road work on Upper Hoh Road outside the park near milepost 10 at Canyon Creek. On weekdays between 8am-5pm, expect flaggers and delays up to 30 minutes through the project limits (Milepost 3 through Milepost 11). Outside of these work hours, drivers should expect minor delays at the temporary traffic signals for alternating single-lane traffic in operation 24 hours a day.
