Olympic National Park

Hoh Road

The Hoh Road is simply the part of the road within the park on the way to the famed Hoh Rain Forest. The turnoff from US-101 is about 13 miles south of the town of Forks. Although the road within the park is short, with few stopping points, the final destination is one of the park’s best.
