This is a must-see because it's the namesake hike. Good for kids too.

We liked this hike. The waterfall at the end is nice, but nothing particularly amazing. The hike itself though is really nice and there are several nice streams and little falls along the way. The kids loved it, we went early in the morning and saw some nice light. Definitely worth it, but manage the expectations for the falls themselves.

Nice little walk through the woods to these powerful falls. We kept going up the trail towards Deer Lake and only saw one other couple the whole time. Unfortunately, a large amount of snow on the trail about 0.5 miles from the lake prevented us from reaching it, but it was still a nice excursion.

Beautiful 40 minute walk through lush forest foliage. The easy hike meanders up , down and through mini hills and valleys. At the end one listens to the eternal sound of rushing waters cascading over rocks fed by mother nature many years before your visit. A part of the Olympic National Park that needs you to visit.

The hike to the falls is around 1.3 but its a great trail very even in most parts and at the end there are built look outs for great views of the 3 waterfalls.

This hike is pretty short and easy! Some rough spots with rocks and tree roots, but not bad. There are some great photo ops along the way and at the falls. The only downside, for me, was the number of people on the trail - hard to get any pictures without people in them.

The hike is short and easy. The fall itself isn't grand but the bridge over it offers great photographic opportunities.

A simple park and walk to the falls. Don't drive by...they are pretty and we did see salmon swimming just below the falls.

I've seen a lot of waterfalls, and this one is unique. It isn't very high or large, but there are three streams of water in this fall. It falls into a deep gorge, which adds to the interest and character. There is a trail into the fall that is .8 miles and winds through rain forest. The trail is relatively... More

After a .8 mile walk you reach the Sol Duc Falls. They are not the highest but there is a lot of water going through the falls. The road to the parking lot is about 18 miles from the highway but well worth the drive.

Since we are coming from east we already saw many beautiful falls in our region. This fall itself is just so so. The trail is easy.
