This sweet, short little trail in the Klahowya Campground is a beautiful green-lined pathway, perfect for people camped nearby, or just on their way to adventures out of the Sol Duc trahilead.
It's a low-key, 0.3 mile interpretive trail built to be wheelchair-friendly, though conditions vary throughout the seasons. Check trip reports if you're heading out to see what obstacles might be on trail.
Your route borders the Sol Duc River, winding through stands of second-growth hemlock, Stika spruce, Douglas-fir, bigleaf and vine maples. The understory is classic Olympic peninsula: ferns and mosses and other greenery providing a lush carpet to the forest floor.
Interpretive signs along the way depict how some early pioneers lived off the land. There is an overlook of the river where a short section of trail parallels the Sol Duc River. Stop here to admire the river along the way.
WTA Pro Tip
During the summer when the river is low water, there is tubing or float run between the 'Day Use' areas next to Sites 9 and 45. Interpretive programs are presented in the amphitheater during the summer.
