Hike it early or late in the day if you want more serenity but I feel it’s a must do if you’re nearby. The trees and moss are just incredible, if you do it right you’ll be moved by the aura of this place. Take your time.

We parked at the Sol Duc Hot Springs parking was free. The path is very clear and about 90% flat. The parts that are a bit steep go up smoothly so you don't even feel it. You see everything from ferns, blueberries, wildflowers, the most amazing Bridges, all to end up in this beautiful three-way cascading waterfall. It was about an hour and a half hike. I can tell you you don't really feel it you've got a lot to look at. As far as animals go we saw Birds, some squirrels and even a black bear. Would a 100% recommend this hike to anyone.

Absolutely beautiful! The walk was wonderful and doing it counterclockwise meant we saved the best canyons views for last.

Would call it a hike, just a very quick walk from the parking lot to a nice little waterfall.

Did this hike last week in the rain. Was still a great hike even in the rain. It was a bit crowded compared to some other trails, but a must do. Beautiful plants and trees during the hike. Nice waterfall at the end. Very easy hike.

Overcrowded, extremely easy.

Perfect hike for finding swimming holes!

Exceeded expectations

Nice hike for the view you get. It’s short, do plan some other hikes or adventures in the area to make it worth the trip. The ride in is a bit rough, so go slow on the roads.

Probably would’ve given this 4 stars if it weren’t for the crowds. The trail is short and easy, so it’s hard to spread out from others, especially at the end. The trail is very pretty though, although we found the trail 7-8 miles before it off the road to be nicer just in terms of serenity as well the rainforest type scenery (the name escapes me).

This is such a beautiful area. We loved wandering through the rainforest with our three kids: 6,4,2

This was fun. The kids enjoyed it. So did we :)

easy short hike to beautiful falls, the mosquitos/flys were bad (use bug repellent or where long sleeves.) this is a very well maintained, very trafficked trail. visited during a Monday afternoon at the end of July and the trail / parking lot were packed.

Beautiful!

Great easy little hike. Took my daughter and had lunch at the falls.

Nice walk through the old forest growth. We ended at the creek, but we think the trail ends before the steep descent.

Great trail for all and the dogs were allowed. Well maintained and it’s an easy hike for all.

Easy and worth it. Kids can even do it. It is pretty busy though.

What a gorgeous hike. Huge payoff for a short distance (with a well maintained trail). We went early to beat the hottest pet of the day and felt like we had the entire place to ourselves. It was peaceful and beautiful. Thimble berries were ripe.

Hiked this with our two young kiddos, who are experienced but do need to be reminded to stay away from the edge. They thought scrambling down to the rocks was great!

It was beautifully green! Easy hike.

Well maintained trail in a beautiful setting. A couple of short climbs, but overall an easy, family friendly walk. It's listed as a one mile loop with 75 feet of elevation gain, but if you're into the amazing trees, it might end up being a little more. I ended up doing 1.85 miles and 138 feet of gain. Lots of people, but definitely worth it.

One of the most beautiful hikes I’ve ever been on! It’s a pretty easy hike to the falls. We were hoping to get married in front of the falls, but when we got there to check out the location around the end of June it was very very wet and muddy.

My family and I took a hike down the Sul Doc Falls trail in mid-June. It was about 45 degrees and a light sprinkle most of the way. In other words, it was PERFECT! It was exactly like I would expect a rain forest to be. Everything is covered with some type of green vegetation. The trail itself is definitely not difficult at all, and the falls is a beautiful sight at the end. Other trails continue past the falls into the forest. I wish we could have continued, but my wife definitely would not go for that as she does not like the "cold". Anyway, if you like easy but beautiful hikes, this is one to take!
