Beautiful forest full of history. Beautiful view of Crescent Lake. Great place to sit down and have a picnic

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).

It was nice, very easy little hike out to the lookout decks.

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.

It is muddy and slippery in some places, but the view points at the end are spectacular. We got to see nesting Murres and listen to their cute calls.

the views at the end were good, but half the hike was paved and it was a little upsetting

Beautiful beach to wander around. A few cool rock croppings to explore and climb on. There was also a giant pile of accumulated drift trees between trail end and beach we had to climb over - some areas easier than others.

looks like it dropped right out of a book. amazing place!!!

nice little trail

The city smells like a sewer, high crime and drug use.

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

Great views, and moderate level of difficulty if you’re not used to hiking. Easy otherwise and beautiful.

This is a beautiful trail that I introduce everyone to that visits me in Ocean Shores. The lake, the trees, and the occasional deer can create a mindful stroll or get people new to hiking excited about it. if you are in Ocean Shores I strongly encourage taking a walk in Weatherwax.

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.

Perfect hike! Great views! Single file trail most of the way.

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.

Great hike if you're looking for something short and sweet. Also well worth it to explore the smaller trails branching off from the main trail. Great views guaranteed, even with cloud cover. Tons of people on the trail though, so expect plenty of company!

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!

Wouldn’t call this a “hike” but a beautiful beach stroll. Rather busy area but still a good spot for low tide to check out the tide pools

Wow! Go!

While you’re visiting the area, this is a nice easy trail to add on. It goes past the Hoh River which was a pleasant spot to stop and watch the water and let the kid splash in the water and throw some rocks. If you’ve seen the Hoh Trail, this doesn’t add a ton to the experience. But it was a nice additional trail.

Beautiful, well maintained trail. There is a steep incline and some roots to step over but overall a very even, easy trail. While well trafficked we didn’t have any trouble finding spots for pictures or being able to stop and be alone and have total silence. We went in late July and arrived around 10am. Temperature was very pleasant. We were glad we arrived when we did. Leaving the area around noon, there was no parking and the trails were getting very crowded, there was a line to enter the park.

Did this trail with my sister and 1 year old niece. My niece absolutely loved it! The trail is beautiful. We even saw a deer! This was our first trail and it inspired us to start doing trails all over together!
