Situated on the Olympic Peninsula, this park ranges from Pacific shoreline with tide pools to temperate rainforests to Mount Olympus. The glaciated Olympic Mountains overlook the Hoh Rain Forest and Quinault Rain Forest, the wettest area of the continental United States.

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.

you drive right up to the views so it's not really a hike but it is stunningly gorgeous. we we're lucky enough to experience a clear day, being able to see all the way to the Canadian Rockies. apparently it's typical to not even be able to see the water!

really nice old growth

Pretty. The drive up was very scenic. The fresh blue water of the river was very relaxing to sit by. I even got enough courage to soak my feet in it. Very refreshing!

Great trail, not too long but for sure a good workout. In total, took us about an hour and a half there and back, but taking our time up. The view is well worth it at the top! Saw a lot of goats from a distance. Working off of a mcl tear and going down is steep and a bit hard on the knees-wouldn’t suggest if you are fresh off an injury or struggle with balance!

Beautiful trail-did the last part of it around Lake Angeles the other day!

Very steep and rocky trail. Uphill all the way and downhill all the way down. Very tiresome. There are stunning panoramic views at the top. Just be ready to work hard to get there. Also, lots of mountain goats along the trail.

Excellent hiking trail through the forest to reach the waterfall at the top.

Fantastic. Excellent short and easy trail to a stunning powerful waterfall. Beautiful hike through the forest leading to the waterfall.

Nice and easy hike through the forest along the river. Beautiful old trees. Very narrow trail. Somewhat confusing to return.

Quick and easy walk to the waterfall.

Excellent trail for the whole family. The river is the star of this show.

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.

Feels like cheating driving up to the top, but the views are amazing. Real easy trails up here. Gorgeous views all around. Got very lucky with visibility and were able to see all the way to the Canadian Rockies!

Well maintained - well marked. Lots of benches along the trail. Beautiful scenic views of the creek.

Easy trail with a beautiful waterfall at the end. Slightly crowded.

Beautiful panoramic scene at the top

I don't think we did the "hike" from beach 1, but did walk down the busy path to the beach from the parking lot trail! Seemed great for exploring with kids! Beach wood everywhere, starfish and sea urchins galore out by the big haystack rock. Very cool spot! Had a great weather today too!

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!

beautiful beach!!!

A wide and very pleasant trail with large old-growth trees, ferns, and mosses. The water fall is nice.

Beautiful beach! If you can go at low tide, check the rocks for starfish!

Beautiful huge trees and turquoise water...

Extraordinary! Mother Nature put on a magnificent display with a sunny, blue-sky day mixed with ethereal fog that rolled past the beach for a time. Seeing the seastacks swathed in light fog was amazing! The beach is strewn with huge drift logs/trees that are a fun challenge to photo. I've trekked down many beach walks and this is one of my favorites, for sure!

Easy trail with an impressive waterfall at the end. You'll definitely want your camera to capture the beauty of the path and the falls. We walked past the falls a bit to see more of the little river upstream. It's a great area to settle in and do some meditation and get your nature on!

Great little hike to see a beautiful waterfall and play in the stream down below. A bonus: hike along the trails by Lake Crescent to catch some extraordinary views of that amazing mountain lake.

I hiked up 2 miles to Tom Creek where I was greeted by a picturesque waterfall. The trail was beautiful and shaded with a gentle climb.

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!
