This end of summer backpacking trip will be one to remember. We are heading out to a beautiful temperate Hoh Rainforest about 4.5 hours from Portland. We will hike through a blanket of mosses and ferns that add another layer to the enchantment of this rainforest. This trail along the Hoh River goes through a lush, green canopy of both coniferous and deciduous species. If we are lucky we will get to hear the northern spotted owl sing us to sleep at night or glimpse a herd of Roosevelt elk crossing the river. This bucket list backpacking trip will average five miles a day and spectacular views of the Hoh and Quinault Peoples native land. Come experience the beauty of Olympic National Park with us!
