Sol Duc Falls Trail

If you are in the area, this is an absolute must-see. The actual Sol Duc Falls trail head is about 16 miles down a paved, windy road from HWY 101. This will take you along side he campground which looks very well kept and other various waterfalls and neat creeks along the way (you'll want to stop at all of them!) I visited this area at the end of January and it was beautiful. Even the iPhone pictures look as if they belong in a magazine.

I would recommend going right at sunset, if possible.

Hike about 4 miles in and back (far enough to see myriad views and a waterfall). This is such a wonderful trail. We didn't see any wildlife, but the scenery was outstanding. I'll definitely be going back and doing more!

The Hall of Mosses loop is a great preview of what the Hoh Rain Forest has to offer. No one should visit the Ho without at least doing this loop. There's a spectacular clear stream at the base of the loop that has really vibrant colors.

Wow! Wow! Wow! Hardly any people--actually, we saw none--beautiful hike, with plenty of little valley streams to break on. The rocks when fording the river at times can be slippery and move and roll often, so partner up.

Great camping grounds, with lots of loops and different array of sites to choose from. Had trouble starting fire because of moisture, and honestly, inexperience. Great times.

I had an amazing time here! Though, I recommend wearing pants if you want to scale the driftwood--learned that the hard way. Also, look into tide schedules, it'll be harder to hike along the water if you constantly have to dodge waves/floating driftwood--also learned the hard way.

Wonderful, simple trail for the general public. The mosses and old growth forests are wonderful. If you can't get deeper into the National Park, this will provide a great snippet of what a temperate rain forest is like. Plan for many, many people, for this is just off the main parking lot. Lots of tourists.

Go when it has rained for a bit over the past few days (shouldn't be hard since it is a rain forest)... it provides more green and the banana slugs come out due to the moisture. I've been once when it hadn't rained much over a 2 week span and everything looked dried out.

This "hike" is more of a stroll on the beach, and one that you wish would never end. I wish that it went on and on forever. So beautiful and magical in the early morning with all of the fog/mist. We managed to beat the crowds-if there ever is any. Later in the afternoon the fog burned off and were met with bight blue skies. This is definitely kid friendly as it is all flat. You get it all, beach combing, scrambling on huge drift wood/trees washed ashore, a rope swing at Ellen Creek, and tide pools at the end. Loved it.
