While you’re visiting the area, this is a nice easy trail to add on. It goes past the Hoh River which was a pleasant spot to stop and watch the water and let the kid splash in the water and throw some rocks. If you’ve seen the Hoh Trail, this doesn’t add a ton to the experience. But it was a nice additional trail.

Short little walk in a pretty forest. Easy to do. Everyone should walk it

Don't let the first half of the trail fool you. Once you get to the river it really opens up and gets beautiful. The tree setting on the Hall of Moss Trail is better but the river area is beautiful and open.

Relaxing walk. Well maintained trails. Unfortunately, I did the Hoh rain forest walk first, the view wasn’t that impressive after doing the Hoh.

We saw an elk! Nice, easy stroll to the river. The interpretive signs were informative and interesting to read. The drive to the trail is glorious.

Not as nice as Hall of Moss. But it does take you close to the river.

Not as impressive as the Hall of Mosses trail but still a nice walk. A nice view up the river from one or two points too.

Nice loop thru the forest. Some big old growth trees and skirts the river for a little. I like the Hall of Moss trail at the visitor center slightly better but if you go there do them both !

Very easy, can be done in an hour even with taking your time. Some gorgeous views of the river and of course the forest.

Loved the opportunity to dip our hot, tired feet in the river about halfway around! Very cool hike!

Beautiful trail and view. Keep your eyes focused around you- someone his little toy figures above eye level along the forest. The very small red, yellow and blue figures are so tiny at first I had no idea what I was looking at. It made the trail more fun for the little ones as it gave them a little game to play along the trail.

Similar ecologic features as Hall of Mosses with bonus of briefly hiking near the river. Less crowded than HoM.

Easy nature trail. Had to climb over/under a big tree downed on the trail so it was also very interactive!

This was a super fun and super easy walk through the rain forest. There are post along the way to educate about the foliage which was a nice touch. Bring a lunch and picnic along the Hoh River, there are lots of great spots to post up and enjoy a beautiful day and the babbling river.

Ok, Super easy, slighty boring, disappointing after completing the other easy trail there, best part of this trail is being next to the Hoh River, (nice scenery over there). Do it if you have the time, other wise stick to the Hall of Mosses trail
