The walk from the trail head is just under a mile - a longer walk can be undertaken from the Lodge. It was pretty busy but not unpleasant and the falls are pretty impressive. Definitely worth seeing.

The trail to Sol Duc falls is very well maintained and very scenic. It is not a strenuous hike, and the falls at the end are beautiful. I took the hike with a recovering hyper extended knee and sore ankle. I highly recommend it. The whole experience was very nice.

The hike to the falls is accessible and mesmerizing! Shame on those who skip this gem while in the Olympic area.

After being on the road and driving for hours it's always nice to stretch ones legs. This hike was just perfect for that. It's a good hour in and out and is quite an easy hike. The waterfall of course is the highlight and well worth spending a bit of time there.

The drive up to the trailhead is worse than the hike into the falls. Both are worth the modest effort. Beautiful waterfall and picture location.

This was the second hike in the rainforest and my favorite one. The hike to the falls was gorgeous! It didn't even look real. It wasn't too hard or too long. The falls were gorgeous also! So pretty a lot of water going through there.

A hike of 0.8 miles through an ancient wet forest brings you to the Sol Duc falls. Its pretty though one could be underwhelmed if expecting something like the Niagara or Victoria.

It was a fun hike to get to the falls, which were gorgeous. We were lucky to have sunny, warm weather. But don't forget it is a little cool in the forest.

I recommend this hike. Nicely maintained trail. Bring water and a snack. Dont forget your camera. Exercise caution around the falls. Some people dont read the signs. Falling and being swept over a waterfall is deadly.

It's one of my hiking destination, so we made it happened. I read other reviews and thought it's a short hike from the resort but it wasn't. You have to drive pass the resort and campground to get there. It's 0.8 miles to the waterfall and 4 miles to the lake. We just went to the waterfall because it's getting... More
