Runner Notes

This trail is likely to be packed with tourists and families. It is a great place to walk and learn about the temperate rainforest but it's not recommended as a running trail.

Description

This short, paved loop is a great introduction to the amazing Hoh Rain Forest. With access to other trails like the Spruce Nature Trail and Hall of Mosses Trail, this can be a great jumping off point to longer runs or can serve as a stand-alone loop for an easy outing.

Flora & Fauna

Mild winters, cool summers and up to 12 feet of annual precipitation produce the giant conifers that dominate this rain forest, one of the most spectacular examples of temperate rain forest in the world.

Big-leaf maple and vine maple host an abundance of epiphytes (plants growing upon other plants) that give the rain forest its characteristic look and ethereal quality. A plethora of mosses, ferns and plants compete for space on the forest floor; grazing elk keep the understory open. Dead and downed trees decay slowly and support new life. The eternal cycle of life and death is strikingly apparent in this magnificent forest community.
