Visiting This One Place In Washington Is Like Experiencing A Dream
Rainforests are packed with plant and animal diversity, and Western Washington’s climate makes it a perfect host for one of Earth’s oldest living ecosystems. Located on the west side of Olympic National Park, the Hoh Rain Forest is one of the best examples of a temperate rainforest in the country.
The cool summers, tame winters and 12 feet of annual precipitation create quite a climate for the Hoh. Experiencing it in person can feel pretty surreal.
If you’ve never been, start your journey at the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center. You’ll find all the books, guides and trail maps you need.
The Hall of Mosses Trail is where things really start to feel otherworldly and dream-like. Walking through the 0.8-mile trail feels like passing through a living green sanctuary.
The Hoh River Trail is the Hoh’s major hiking area, paving the 17.3-mile-long path to Glacier Meadows, the shoulder of Mount Olympus.
If you have yet to experience the Hoh, visit this summer and have an otherworldly experience. It might feel like you’re dreaming, but you’ll be wide awake.
The Hoh isn’t the only place in Washington that feels surreal. These spots are straight out of a fairytale.
