“Home to the Hoh Rain Forest, Lake Crescent, Hurricane Ridge, Sol Duc hot springs, this destination is an absolute MUST! Plan to use the entire day when planing this one. Just an hour and a half drive north, you will not be disappointed. Weather you plan to hike, photograph, or just see where the road takes you, you'll be taken away with sights and various micro-climates!”

Waterfall
“this is my most favorite walking trail. it's not long, very well maintained and has a very beautiful waterfall at the end. you'll have access to a small beach before you cross a couple of neat small bridges and climb a fairly steep set of stairs at the very end to see the fall. the trail is a loop if you want to keep going up stairs for a more sweeping view or you can walk back the way you came. ”
