Hoh River Trail

Trip

Backpack - Hoh River Trail

Early season trip to the awesome rainforest. Wildlife and gorgeous greenery await. Likely to see elk and possibly bears.

  • Easy
  • Moderate
  • Mileage: 30.0 mi
  • Elevation Gain: 1,500 ft
  • High Point Elevation: 1,500 ft
  • Pace: 2-2.5 MPH

TBD, early Friday Morning.  Taking the ferry over from Seattle area--likely the Edmonds-Kingston Route.  More info as we get closer.

We will hike in about 10 miles the first day and camp for two nights along the river.  On the off day, Saturday, we will explore another 10-15 miles RT further up the Hoh with day packs. Should be crisp with possible snow on the ground.  
Will make some nice fires. There is an $8/night/person fee for the ONP permit. This trip is weather dependent.  Some rain/showers is to be expected.  May need to postpone to another weekend, cancel or make other adjustments if it is a total rainfest.  I did the Bogachiel River Backpack same time last year and it was awesome fun.   More information as we get closer.

Leader's Permission Required:  Please let me know you are in condition for this early season trip.  Please explain what you have be doing outdoors or indoors over the winter that shows you are up for this trip.  Thanks. Rob
