Wildlife & Nature Viewing
The world famous Hoh Rain Forest is just a few miles down Hwy 101, which is a stunning and pristine wilderness at the foothills of the Olympic Mountains. The enormous Douglass Firs that grow here are some of the largest trees in the world. There are a number of walking trails, where you can experience nature and wildlife up close.
If fishing, hunting, beach combing, and hiking aren't enough for you, how about visiting hot springs or mountain biking. Enjoy taking nature photos, studying the stars or checking out Northwest culture at the Makah Museum, the Forks Timber Museum.
