Day 1: Sol Duc Valley (20 minutes from Lake Crescent)

Day 1: Sol Duc Valley (20 minutes from Lake Crescent)

Reasons to go:

  • An easy .8-mile trail to the misty, thundering Sol Duc falls
  • A valley laced with magnificent old-growth timber
  • Salmon Cascades Overlook (popular in September-November), where thousands of determined coho salmon swarm through the Sol Duc River and battle their way through the falls on their upstream journey.
  • Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort (open summer months only), where three mineral pools offer a range of temperatures for soaking tired hiking muscles

More information:

Top off your day with dinner at one of our fine area restaurants. (Ask us for recommendations!) Then come on back to Sea Cliff Gardens Bed & Breakfast, where you can soak in your Jacuzzi hot tub and watch the sun set over the ocean.
