There is a stunning variety of scenery and plant life to go along with the falls. The hike in isn't bad and it is worth the effort. Olympic has lots to offer and this is one of the most popular sites for a good reason. The air is amazing, too.

My husbanding I travelled to Sol Duc to see the water falls. The walk was worth it as the fall was beautiful.

There were many turn offs to enjoy the road and river along the way, and there was a variety of trees and vegetation all the way up. There was one vault toilet on the way at the salmon watching stop, and good toilets at the campground. However, those were locked when I was there and it was starting to snow,... More

We did the trail hike of the Sol Duc Falls. I love hiking but am out of shape and this hike .8 miles each way, was fairly easy. They do need to clear all the fallen trees off the trail though. Tip: Avoid the restrooms if you can. So gross. The falls are gorgeous and well worth the hike. Be... More

Well there was absolutely no one in the park while we were there it was still a little disappointing to see trees down everywhere in the road and many on the trail to Sol Duc falls they have some massive cleanup to do before spring if you're headed there in the next couple months be prepared to go over under...

It's a must hike. The trail is easy and well marked. If you could just bottle the scent of the forest you could make a fortune, there is nothing like it! Lots of little bubbling streams on the way to the falls. It's very peaceful. The falls itself has a walking bridge to stand on and watch the falls. It's... More

We went to the Hot Springs, did not partake but enjoyed the beautiful drive. Be sure to view the Salmon Cascades

We did 2 hikes here in Sol Duc - first short .5 mile hike as driving in the view the Ancient Path with HUGE trees over 700 years old. I kept waiting for a dinosaur to peek out from behind these giants. This is one of my all time favorites and Thank God the Loggers haven't gotten to it.

We were disappointed in Sol Duc. We expected a natural setting which it was definitely not. It was just swimming pools with the hot springs water in them. We did not stay.

Hot springs were neither hot nor particularly beautiful. The surrounding mountains are pleasant but otherwise the facility itself was uninspired.
