Trails Improved at Hoh Rain Forest
Visitors, especially those in wheelchairs or pushing strollers, will notice improvements to the short loop trail at the Hoh Rain Forest.

This August and September, trail crew members put down new asphalt to smooth and repair cracks and holes in the quarter-mile long accessible trail. Wooden guard rails were installed in areas where the trail rises above the surrounding ground level.

The trail crew also upgraded 1,000 lineal feet of trails in the picnic area , replacing deteriorated asphalt with crushed rock to make them easier to maintain.
