Key information: Sol Duc River Valley

  • Sol Duc River Valley is western valley in the Olympic National Park with huge and ancient rainforest making for interesting and inspiring walking.
  • Can be combined with the Hoh River for a superb hike into the heart of the wilderness, taking in Deer Lake, Bogachiel Peak and Hoh Lake, then back out through the Hoh Rainforest.
  • There are good shorter hikes (including to Sol Duc Falls, Lovers Lane and Mink Lake), as well as longer trails, both lower-level valley walks and The High Divide Loop.
  • This is remote mountain walking, on which you will have to be self-sufficient and the weather is often bad here. Come prepared.

    ANYONE GOT ANY GOOD PHOTOS? WE WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO POST THEM!

     For more information and photos, including detailed practical information and some warnings, see our Olympic NP walk page.
