“stunning year-round falls”
Old-growth forest, subalpine lakes, and snowy peaks populate the Sol Duc landscape, while the Sol Duc River serves as a key highway for coho salmon, running through the valley and ascending to the lakes and headwaters in the surrounding mountains. Sol Duc falls is a stunning signature falls of national prominence in Olympic National Park. This is a great year-round falls. In contrast to most falls on the Olympic Peninsula, this one is viewed from above stream level. In the rainy season and early spring runoff this falls can be spectacular as it thunders beneath your feet. Winter viewing may require a snowshoe hike as Sol Duc Resort and road close during the snowy off season. Drive west from Fairholm on Highway 101 approximately 1.8 miles to the road for Sol Duc Hot Springs. Drive approximately 14 miles up the road to the parking lot at the Sol Duc Trailhead. Hike on an easy trail 0.8 miles, just past the rebuilt CCC era Canyon Creek Shelter (aka Sol Duc Shelter) and you will see (and hear) the falls, viewable up close on a bridge crossing the Sol Duc River.
If you find Sol Duc Falls on the map, then go to "find places" on the left side and select "accommodation", you can find any type of place, from campsite to boutique hotel, as near or far as you like :)
Where are nearby accommodations?
Lover's Lane to the falls is a 6 mile hike from the hot springs. Parking is nuts- I walked 2 miles up the road before starting. Totally worth it.
Beautiful, stunning! Easy hike among a forest of greenery.
Amazing waterfall, you see this in pictures quite often, and for a good reason. It is beautiful!
Picturesque! Magnificently green!
