Hoh Rainforest Trail Olympic National Park

Hoh Rainforest Trail Olympic National Park

The Hoh Rainforest Trail in Olympic National Park was long hike with very little elevation change. Although the views inside the rainforest were incredible, the overall topography didn’t change very much throughout our hike. It wasn’t like any other hike I’ve been on, and I felt completely lost in there. That made hiking the distance feel much longer for us. Or maybe just me. :P We hiked 5 miles to a campground and decided to turn back (10 miles roundtrip). We would have loved to continue further to the glacier, but I slowed us down significantly with all the photos I was taking, and it was starting to get too late. Oops! Also, we weren’t geared up with enough food and water to go that much further.

Between the mud and the slugs everywhere, it took a lot of concentration finding each step on our hike.

It’s not the most convenient snack for hiking, but these definitely satisfy my hunger much more than cliff bars. Not a fan of either of the ones pictured below, but I do like the Spicy Thai Chili flavor. :)
