Sol Duc Falls

Sol Duc Falls

Sol Duc Falls is located a mile or so from the Sol Duc Ranger Station in northwest section of the Olympic National Park. There is a bridge across the river at that point … connecting to the High Divide trail, one of the most popular backpacking routes (reservations required). Note the person in the top right corner of the image.

And below is the river downstream from the bridge.

Madison Falls


Madison Falls is along the Elwha River just at the boundary of the Olympic National Park. The walk is about a city block and is accessible (though not so much in the snow).

We had a few days of below freezing temperatures, but the ice hadn’t built up quite as much as I was expecting. Still nice, though.
