Hoh Rain Forest

Hoh Rain Forest

The Hoh Rain Forest is located on the Olympic Peninsula.

It is one of the few temperate rain forests in the U.S., and also one of the largest. Annual precipitation ranges from 141 to 165 inches (360 to 420 cm). (12 to 14 feet).

Summers are relatively dry, but only by comparison to the rest of the year.

The late fall, winter and spring floods cause the Hoh River to regularly erode its banks, change its course, and deposit fresh terraces of alluvium that are soon colonized by Red Alder.

Giant trees topple into the river increasing the diversity of aquatic habitats.
