Hoh Rainforest is the Olympic National Park´s classic densely forested
entrance in thousands of brilliant shades of green. Just 30 minutes from
Forks the Hoh Rainforest is the quiet star of the rainforest valleys.
As you travel down the quiet country "Upper Hoh Road" you will
be treated to glimpses of the sometimes teal and other times grey Hoh
River. It travels from the glaciers of Mount Olympus to the Pacific Ocean
in less than 70 miles. The Hoh river is a must see for nature-lovers who
want more than a drive through version of the rainforest. At the visitor
center people can inform themselves on flora, fauna and backcountry camping.
This is the favorite entrance for climbers to reach Mount Olympus and
its many glaciers. Many activities are availabe in the Hoh valley, including
rafting, kayaking, biking and hiking. Expansive logging roads circling
the outscirts of the park are an explorer´s dream come true. A cafe
and gas station are also available on the Upper Hoh Rd..
