It literally feels like you’re in another world on this trail. Beautiful, lush green forest with moss everywhere you turn. I highly recommend doing this trail as you get to see so much more of the Hoh rain forest. And the kids loved it!

HikingGreat!

Beautiful trails - I loved both! Unfortunately we didn’t see any wildlife, thanks to a few loud groups ahead of us. These hikes are super easy, so I’d suggest squeezing these between a couple of tougher ones if you’re hiking around the whole peninsula. It was a really refreshing time to get our energy back and enjoy each other’s company

The trail was beautiful. The rain has just stopped so it wasn’t too crowded but I passed only two other parties wearing masks. Most had no masks at all. Saw a coho salmon in the river and some squirrels along the way. Also saw a woman hiking in a long dress and mid heel boots. That was a first.

Nice trail, pretty flat and easy but not as pretty as the Hall of Mosses trail. If you only have time for one Trail don’t do this one!

Very easy nature walk with beautiful cedars and mossy trails. Went mid day and just had to wait about five minutes for someone to pull out.

Nature tripsGreat!

Beautiful scenery, the smell of the woods always puts me in a good headspace. We also got lucky enough to spot a quail and at least 3 deer bedded down in a thicket near the river.
