Barely a trail, this merely serves to get you from your car at the west terminus of Oil City Rd. to the beach in order to hike the stunning Pacific NW Trail, aka South Coast Beach Travelway, aka Olympics NP beach trail.

My mother and I made this a day hike and started at 10:30a.m. I would suggest starting earlier, to get the most enjoyment out of the day. It took around 10 hours, we weren't hoofing it crazy but we also didn't take any stops greater than a couple minutes. I would definitely do it again as a day hike, just leave early to get to explore the area with more ease. I would suggest doing this hike in one day if camping is not an option. It would make a challenging trail run as well. My GPS died at 12.5 miles and we had put in over 4,800 feet. (I think the elevation recorded on sites is not the total net gain). We were definitely spent after this beautiful day of hiking. Some of the best hiking views I've encountered!!
Next time: bring food, and more water!

There is a $20 fee to access the trail if you aren't staying at Sol Duc Resort. with so many other non-fee hiking opportunities throughout the National Park, we opted to skip this one.

I went five miles in on this trail and thoroughly enjoyed it. There isn't much of an elevation climb in the parts that I did. It was my first time on the trail but it's pretty easy to navigate. It could use some more signs, but basically everywhere it branched off to the right was a river spot and the main trail continued to the left. At about 3 miles in there's a waterfall. Just past that bridge there's a trail that runs up to the waterfall. Slippery but you can go pretty high up if you're brave enough. Past that the forest is still amazing, but I started questioning if it would be worth continuing. About 4 miles in there's a patch of redwoods that make the trip worth it, and a mile past that is a great spot on the river for a rest. It rained off and on all day, which didn't take away from the hike at all! I think the 5 mile marker is a good place to turn around, but I gather a lot of people only go as far as the waterfall. Either one makes a great day trip.
