A surprisingly fun trail that starts at a campground, typically I've found those to be rather calm. But thanks to a wet winter this was filled with downed trees to climb over, and a 10' wide river/small waterfall that needed to be crossed on the return trip. Outside of that the trail was well maintained. We did spot a bear coming back, but as soon as it noticed us it ran off into the woods. I suspect it's the same one that has been hanging around the campground itself lately.

Nice trail, and the falls are huge. They had a big storm there in early November I think and it knocked down a lot of trees. I think we spent as much time climbing and crawling as we did walking.

The trail is mostly flat and spends a lot of time going through thick old growth forest. At halfway if you start from the resort you reach the falls, which are beautiful. There are a few sections which are close to the river, but mostly it is heavily forested. It was pretty but a little buggy.

Beautiful April Day Hike - The Waterfall is definitely worth seeing :)

Great hike on a beautiful day. Currently there are a few spots where trees have fallen on the trail and you have to go around. Had to cross a river without a bridge, maybe it got washed out. Worth the view at Sol Duc Falls. Enjoyable hike if you are ready for a few obstacles right now.

This was a very beautiful hike! It had a lot of moss and big trees! Highly recommended!

If you really want to fall in love read this review. There is no trail name for the trail I'm referring to but it is on the topo map. It is North of the Sol Duc River and in between the road. it is right before you cross the bridge into the hot springs parking lot. It cuts through the camp sites along the way. I fell in love with this trail like none other. Please find this little gem and enjoy it as much as I have.
