This is something you just have to see. You would not expect this in the Northern United States. The trails are easy to walk and anyone could do them. The different things you can see and the way the trees grow with all the moss and ferns is amazing. If I can make one recommendation go very early. This is a one road in one road out place with very limited parking. We went early and spend the entire morning walking around. We saw some elk and even found a couple different slugs. But if you don't go early you could be waiting in line for hours because as a certain point they will only let a car in if a car comes out. Don't miss it but go early.

We tried to go to Hurricane ridge first but the road was closed so we drove to the Hoh rainforest & did our itinerary backwards. It took about 2 hours to get there from hurricane ridge. There were at least 3 spots where the road was closed & each direction had to take turns. The road to Hoh is 1 lane each way & a car flipped over on our way out. I was surprised how many deer we saw on the roads. Plan more time for the roadwork! There are a few gas stations (unlike a lot of national parks) before you start down the main road to get there. We got there around 8:00 am. There were already quite a few people/cars but people were doing various hikes so it was not crowded. We walked through the hall of mosses and did the spruce trail. It was beautiful with easy, clear paths to walk. Photos don’t do this place justice - such a cool experience! It was cold in the morning and I recommend wearing layers. The visitor center is very small but there are bathrooms.
