I find it difficult to walk more than a short distance. The ranger took time to describe the areas he thought I would be able to manage, those I might (he recommended I observe those carefully before I started out. He did point me to Madison Falls on the Elwha River,, which I could reach and which were lovely.

Especially if you are a traveling a bit off season, this is an important stop to check on trail conditions, road closures and pick up maps.

If you're not familiar with the park or the peninsula, it's worth your time to stop here before going into the park. They have the typical informative rangers on staff, all the permits, guide books, maps, and stuff that you'd need to explore the park and surrounding area.

Very nice, helpful, informative staff on hand to talk about this magnificent park and it's amazing features. I visit the Park on a daily basis! National Parks have been offering lots of deals to visit the Parks, so call ahead to find out what days/holidays/ages don't have to pay fees.
