Love the rainforest with views of the mountains up the Hoh River Valley. Lots of roots but trail in great shape.

Great trail. It was quite muddy because it’s March in Western Washington, but there were several places with enough standing water on the trail to make it more challenging. No bear siting and not too many people this time of year.

Pretty awesome hike to get away from any crowds at hall of Mosses or Spruce Trail. Muddy, wet, but who cares it’s a rainforest.

Muddy but nice. Not sure the full 3 miles to the waterfall is really worth it. But it’s a pretty walk through the rainforest

HikingFloodedGreat!IcyMuddy

The trail is well marked and wild at the same time. In some parts of the trail, it got muddy. In other parts of the trail it was overran with a stream of water. possible to cross, but tricky. Then it got cold. Felt like freezing temperatures even with all our layers. (baselayer, fleece, puffy, rain shell, and accessories) But I also felt dry in the cold. Dressing in layers helped out a lot, as did waterproof boots and good, thick socks.

Beautiful trail along the river. Was muddy in several places and you need to cross a few creeks, so bring sturdy waterproof boots and gaiters. Do need to do some climbing over down trees. The creek and falls is very pretty.

Beautiful, easy trail with a cool waterfall. The trail was flooded and muddy in spots but was what I expected for a rain forest. I forgot to start my app so the mileage is about .5 miles short. So many possibilities for longer hiked and backpacking on this trail. I wish I had more time! Oh well, next time!!!
