So beautiful... tons of hikes and camping. This is a must see!!!

THIS IS CLOSED - NOT ACCESSIBLE AS OF SEPTEMBER 11. The road to the trailhead is closed until October 5 apparently - the road closes about 5 miles from the trailhead (I recommend driving the open part anyway, as it’s beautiful), so maybe you’d be able to walk if you were super keen... but I wasn’t that keen hahaha

Short, easy trail. Everytime someone comes to visit me in Port I take them here. The trees are ridiculously huge! Very well maintained and taken path.

Rain forest in Canada

showed up later in the evening. still had many people but some areas were clear of crowds and you could appreciate the views and sounds. while it is a tourist trap, the views are beautiful.

Wonderful rainforest, only drawback is the traffic noise pollution along some parts of the trail, due to the proximity to Highway 4.

Massive 600-800 year old trees. Maybe 400 people in the tiny park, though. Always someone in front and in back of you. (Seemed like the smoke kept folks inside for the past few days and clear sky brought them out. )

I did notice a great diversity of people-- from kids, to handicapped to international folks.

Nice walking loop through the old growth forest. Beautiful views of nature. Go take a stroll!

This is the perfect micro hike. There’s a little elevation, a little water, massively adorned trees and moss all around!

We did both loops with our kids, stopping along the way to read the signs and learn more about the rainforest. Such a beautiful environment. The boardwalks are fantastic...many steps but very doable for active families.

Hike it early or late in the day if you want more serenity but I feel it’s a must do if you’re nearby. The trees and moss are just incredible, if you do it right you’ll be moved by the aura of this place. Take your time.

Beautiful nature!

Overcrowded, didn’t like it. You can’t enjoy the hike because there’s always someone in front of you blocking the views, taking pictures, or being slow walkers.

Exceeded expectations

Disappointed overall. It’s all hype and a $96 entry fee for 2 adults, overcrowded as heck, and not too many good views due to the insane amount of tourists. Might be worth doing once but I would skip if I were you.

This was fun. The kids enjoyed it. So did we :)

Easy and worth it. Kids can even do it. It is pretty busy though.

great but the mass was dry I think June its best time

It was beautifully green! Easy hike.

Well maintained trail in a beautiful setting. A couple of short climbs, but overall an easy, family friendly walk. It's listed as a one mile loop with 75 feet of elevation gain, but if you're into the amazing trees, it might end up being a little more. I ended up doing 1.85 miles and 138 feet of gain. Lots of people, but definitely worth it.

Beautiful, well maintained trail. There is a steep incline and some roots to step over but overall a very even, easy trail. While well trafficked we didn’t have any trouble finding spots for pictures or being able to stop and be alone and have total silence. We went in late July and arrived around 10am. Temperature was very pleasant. We were glad we arrived when we did. Leaving the area around noon, there was no parking and the trails were getting very crowded, there was a line to enter the park.

nice little stroll but very out of the way, so I'd honestly probably never do it again, but if you're coming through just once, it's worth it.

Probably worth coming to just once. It's quite out-of-the-way. If you've hiked elsewhere in Washington you can easily find moss hanging from trees, so I'm not exactly sure what makes this particular trail so recognized for it.

Busy with visitors on this sunny July day, easy walk. Signs say an hour, more like 20 min. Fun photo spots. A little dry/brown looking today!

Pleasant, simple trail to get a taste of the Hoh Rain Forest. This trail is well traveled with many park visitors. Take the Hoh River Trail to go deeper into the park and experience more of the beauty of the area.

Very unique hike. Saw some elk munching on some tasty ferns. Yummy!

Nothing but the freshest of greens and the oldest of mosses. If you are craving isolation from the city then this is the right spot. The Hall of Mosses trails offers a short round-about through monstrous trees filled with lovely mosses and ferns all around. If you are keen to know more about this vast rainforest ecosystem, along the way there are small markers that explains the development of newly found shrubs and plant life - while also highlighting the death and decay of previous living trees and wildlife.

You will definitely enjoy the serene environment the Hall of Mosses has to offer - including the drive to the visiting center that is filled with tunnels of tall trees shrouding the visible light. The moment of silence is unforgettable. Aside from the cars coming in and out of the park, for the most part, the area itself is very peaceful. Just be sure to pack some water-resistant clothing just in case it starts to drizzle around the area.

It wasn’t what I expected. The pictures do not look the same as the trail. Normally photos can’t do the justice of the scenery, but this time it was vice versa. The walk it’s self was still beautiful, but the entrance fee was 30$, which you can go to any Olympic Park for 7 days. We had to, in order to purchase said ticket, wait about an hour. I personally think it was overpriced and not worth the cost. It was, like I said, beautiful, but did not lead up to the name. If I could give out of 5 stars it would be a 3.5/5.

Exceptionally beautiful and unique. This trail is very easy for all ages and offers a lot of sightseeing and reward. But because of its fame, it’s is unfortunately high trafficked. Lots of people are walking and talking about which for me, brought me out of the peaceful trail. Take plenty of bug spray as the wet climate is perfect mosquito breeding ground and they are borderline unbearable. But don’t let either of those two points take you away from doing this short little walk. The old growth moss is something unique and must be seen. We went in early July which is considered the dry season (although it was still pretty wet) but since it doesn’t rain as much, the plant life was not as green and vivid as it might be in the rainy season. All in all, if you are in Olympic, this is absolutely a must do.
