Relaxation and Hiking Guide 4K
The best place to start your exploration of the Hoh Rain Forest is at the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center. From there you can walk two short nature trails: the Hall of Mosses Trail, 0.8 miles long, and the Spruce Nature Trail, 1.2 miles long. My personal favorite is the Hall of Mosses trail – it’s like walking through a living green cathedral. For a hike deeper into the wilderness try the 5 Mile Island hike. It follows the Hoh River, is relatively flat, and is lined with giant 100 year old cedars, spruce, and fir trees. If you go there on a day when there are not a lot of other visitors, you cannot help but notice how quiet it is. The moss is very effective at absorbing sounds.
