Nice flat and short hike through old growth forest to beautiful three prong waterfall that captures rainbows in the spray. Passes over a few spring fed and snow runoff creeks along the way. Sol Duc Falls rages under a wooden bridge and the hike has a wooden platform at the end of the trail - nice place to sit and enjoy the falls!

Short hike to a beautiful falls. Almost no elevation gain or loss and the trail is well maintained. We went and soaked in the hot springs afterward and it made for a great day!

Great hike. Pretty simple and easy, but with fantastic views. Neat bridges and awesome waterfalls. Lots of little trails off the main ones. Much more to explore then you will first think.

Super easy hike, and the falls is amazing. Very well maintained trail. If you go over the bridge at the falls, past the wooden lookouts, and onto that trail you can easily go stand in the middle of the river on one of the many little rock mounds. That's actually where my fiance proposed. Absolutely perfect! I recommend going for a soak in the hot springs afterwards, even if you aren't staying the night there.

Falls are spectacular. Camped on the river in fall, quiet and otherworldly.
