    From the main highway the falls is about twelve miles in through gently winding hills. The hike through the forest to get to Sol Duc waterfalls is lovely and not at all a difficult trail. I found it t...  more »

    Very nice hike and falls, but not a spectacular or unique experience. Not crowded, but not alone. Hike tup to Deer Lake was vigorous, but worth the effort. Haze from Canadian wildfires interfered with...  more »

    Wow! This was an amazing hike! From the parking lot, follow the dirt packed trail into a forest of towering trees. This is a nicely shaded hike. Before reaching the falls, you cross a stream with wate...  more »

    Beautiful hike/location! Incredibly easy walk, and the falls are beautiful. The only downfall I think I would say it had was the fact that it was extremely busy when we went. Hard to get any pictures without any other people in the frame. But definitely the place to go if you're up in Olympic National Park.

    $25 for seven consecutive days or $50 for an annual pass.

    It is a nice hike out to these falls, the trail can be very busy. But the falls are great and the air is nice and cool on a hot day. There is also a nice shelter nearby that is great to check out.

Where to stay in Olympic National Park

Many visitors to Olympic National Park choose to pitch a tent at one of 16 campgrounds, many of which stay open throughout the year. The park also offers a mix of lodge rooms, motel rooms, and cabins thanks to two lodges and two resorts. On the Pacific Coast, the Kalaloch Lodge stands as the most isolated of these. If you prefer to rest your head outside the park, consider staying in Port Townsend. This artsy waterside community northeast of the park offers plenty of inns and bed and breakfasts, but they fill up quickly in summer, so reserve ahead if possible. Port Angeles sits a bit closer to the park and offers more functional accommodations in the form of motels and hotels, though you'll also find waterfront inns and cottages in the area. Communities on the park's western side offer a rustic vibe, but they also take more time to get to if you're coming from Seattle.
