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

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.

The Hot Spring is warm at best, unless you get to sit around the center fountain. It is quite crowded during weekends.

Enjoyed the trails, hot springs. Very pleasant experience. A place to go with your partner or with the family. Great food and beautiful sunny day added icing to the cake.

WE had a very nice senic hike to this waterfall. The waterfall itself is execellant. This is a rainforest. The views are amazing.
