“A short loop that dips its toes into the magnificent Hoh rainforest.”— Brian Smith
This loop can be done in conjunction with Mini Trail and Spruce Nature Trail to create a slightly longer run.
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.
