Forks is the friendly little town catapulted to fame by the Twilight books and movies. Visit the Forks Timber Museum to learn about local history back to the 1870s. Investigate the many intriguing treasures at John’s Beachcombing Museum, collected since 1976 from local beaches. Enjoy the town’s restaurants and stay in its lodgings, both inns and outlying cabins. Because of its convenient location, Forks is the perfect base camp for day excursions on the west side of the Olympic Peninsula. Stop in at Forks Outfitters for camping and hiking supplies. Many trails are pet-friendly, so bring your best friend! Fishing Adventures The Bogachiel, Hoh, Sol Duc and Calawah Rivers offer world- class fishing when salmon and steelhead are running. For salmon and other saltwater fish, charter a fishing boat from La Push. Local guides, restaurants and inns cater to fishing enthusi- asts, providing pre-dawn breakfasts and packing lunches to go. Hoh Rain Forest The dense rain forest valley of the glacier-fed Hoh River is a must- see. These forests thrive sustained by 12 to 16 feet of rainfall a year, not including the 30 inches of tree drip from fog condens- ing in the canopy. Browsing herds of Roosevelt elk feed on the thick undergrowth and keep it from obscuring the trail view. The Hoh Visitor Center is the starting point for several walks under two miles, as well as longer and more challenging hikes to the glaciers and alpine meadows of Olympic National Park’s interior. The word “Hoh” is a Native American term meaning “fast moving water” and describes the beautiful Hoh River perfectly. See eagles, elk, otters and other wildlife from the banks or take a trip down the river via kayak, raft or guided drift boat.
