Hiking Hall of Mosses

Here's a nice, short rainforest loop from the Hoh Rain Forest Visitor Center in Olympic National Park.

This is an easy, short hike sprinkled with educational signage and plenty of opportunity to explore some of Washington's gorgeous, lush rainforests.

Be on the lookout for animals, from mighty Roosevelt Elk to banana slugs, and every size in between. Kids will love this loop, and at less than a mile roundtrip, it's a great option for hikers of any age.
