Sol Duc Falls is the must-see pay off to a short hike in the Olympic National Forest

It's a 1.6-mile round trip excursion that offers the ideal combination of waterfalls and rain forest. #k5evening

EDITOR'S NOTE: The above video originally aired in May 2019.

When Evening’s Saint Bryan and Jose Cedeno hiked through along the well-maintained path through the forest, they saw towering trees draped in moss, a small stream, and a historic shelter before they arrived at a bridge above a rocky canyon. They heard the waterfall before seeing the cascades tumbling 48 feet down the canyon.

The trail is good for all skill levels and the falls have been called the most beautiful in Olympic National Park. Saint suggests you bring a bottle of water for every hiker and Jose suggests you bring more than one large cookie.

Sol Duc Falls Nature Trail was voted Best Short Hike in 2019’s Best Northwest Escapes.
