Description

Highlighted worldwide as one of the prettiest waterfalls in Olympic National Park, the location of Sol Duc Falls is pretty remote, but that doesn't mean it isn't worth it. Hikers of all levels and ages will love standing on the wooden bridge, looking down an amazing canyon in one direction and upstream toward one of the more memorable waterfalls of your life. Check it out, you'll not be disappointed.

Short Run: At less than a mile to the waterfall, this well-maintained, family-friendly trail is sure to be a favorite for explorers of all ages and abilities. For beginning hikers, the trail opens up a wonderland of nature, transporting one to a land of fairy tales. For advanced hikers, this trail is the perfect start to get deeper into one of the more gorgeous regions of Olympic National Park, the 7 Lakes Basin.
