Sol Duc Falls

Vacation Travel Guide
Sol Duc Falls featuring a hotel

Relax and enjoy the surroundings as you soak in these soothing mineral-spring pools in a stunning forest setting.

Enjoy the healing powers of sulfurous waters at the Sol Duc Hot Springs pools. Campers, hikers and weary sightseers flock here to soothe their aches and pains in a tranquil wilderness environment. The pools are the focal point for the rustic Sol Duc Hot Springs Resort, which offers a range of cabin accommodations.

The pools are set in a picturesque evergreen-covered valley. Leave your worries behind and relax at the resort. With no telephones, televisions or radios here, you can easily avoid the stresses and strains of everyday life. Put on your swimsuit and work your way through the three soaking pools. The hottest pool is a steaming 104 F (40 C). Allow your tensions to dissolve and disappear in the soothing hot water. A local Indian legend claims the hot water comes from the tears of two fighting dragons, though scientists explain that the mineral-rich water is heated from the rocks of the earth's interior before bubbling up near the Sol Duc River.

For additional therapeutic treatment for the body and mind, book a place at the spa center where expert masseuses are waiting to work out any remaining tension or knots. Then, once evening falls, dine in style at the on-site restaurant that has a view out over the hot springs.

If you crave action and adventure, hike on one of the many trails near to the springs. Trek along the picturesque trail to Sol Duc Falls, just 3 miles (5 kilometers) from the hot springs. Visitors who come during late fall should watch for the impressive sight of Coho salmon leaping into the air as they make their way upstream to spawn in the Sol Duc River.

Sol Duc Hot Springs are located about an hour’s drive west of Port Angeles in the northwest region of Olympic National Park. The springs can be reached via the peninsula’s scenic ocean highway taking the Sol Duc Hot Springs Road exit. Enjoy a quiet drive through the coniferous forests of the valley until you reach the resort.
