Photographer's Note

Passed by "Sol Duc Falls" on my way up to Deer Lake which is part of the Olympic Park Seven Lakes Basin. I well recommend this trek up to the lake though make sure that the weather is good and that the path is reasonably clear of debris and snow. I climbed it after the big winter storm of 2006/2007 and I did find myself scrambling quite a bit over huge fallen trees and the remnants of avalanched snow.

From Port Angeles, drive west 27 miles on U.S. Highway 101, turn south on Sol Duc Hot Springs Road (also known as the Sol Duc River Road). The Sol Duc Ranger Station is about 12 miles from U.S. 101. Sol Duc Campground is an Olympic National Park campground, not to be confused with an RV campground operated by the resort. The end of the road is just under 14 miles, elevation 2,000 feet.

Sol Duc Falls is less than two miles round trip, no appreciable gain. Canyon Lake (to Deer Lake), is around eight miles round trip with 1,500 feet elevation gain. Salmon Cascades is a half-mile, no elevation gain. The Ancient Forest Grove is a half-mile, minimal elevation gain. For information on road and trail conditions, call Olympic National Park Wilderness Information Center at 360-452-0300, or Storm King Ranger Station at Lake Crescent, 360-928-3380.
