Many are 100s of years old and can reach 250 feet in height and 30 to 60 feet in circumference. A stroll to the Hall of Mosses is especially unique and makes this temperate Rainforest a must-see when visiting the Pacific Northwest. Next, we’ll visit Ruby Beach. Completely void of any buildings, telephone wires or human intervention, this is one of the most relaxing places on earth to explore tides, seabirds, driftwood, monolith rocks and lush foliage.
