    You’ve read our minds! They are included in the new Waterfall Trail brochure and soon to be up on this website! We’ve been enjoying them, so thought others might, too!

  2. waterfalls says:

    I would think that the REI folks would be able to answer your question more thoroughly than we can. They are the gear experts! I’d have full confidence with their recommendations

  3. waterfalls says:

    The trail to Madison Falls is wheelchair accessible. I’m not sure I can answer the question about the which picture belongs to which trail….the photos posted under each waterfall should be of that falls.

  4. Penny says:

    what water filter do you recommend from REI? the minimal cost to do the job, so I don’t get sick?

  5. Michelle Plasse says:

    You should add Murhut and Rocky Brook falls to your map. They’re not far from Falls view and well worth the short hike.

  6. kim mundell says:

    Hello, I would like to know which trails are wheelchair accessible and which picture belongs to which trail. Thanks!

  7. waterfalls says:

    Thanks for your input. We appreciate your making our information more complete and clear! Glad you had a good time!

  8. John says:

    Thanks for the terrific info. Used it quite a bit during my trip to Olympic NP this week. Noted a couple of missing items in the Quinault region that are marked on the trail maps there: Falls Creek Falls at the base of Falls Creek and the main road, and Cascade Falls which is only another easy 1.5 miles from Gatton Creek Falls. In addition, you may want to mention that walking the Quinault Rain Forest Trail to the Willaby Creek waterfall goes through the National Forest, so technically it’s another fee (the board said $5) on top of the National Park entrance fee. All in all, a wonderful resource.

  9. Jonathan says:

    I have visited Murhut falls at least 6 times at from early spring to fall and have enjoyed each visit. After steady rain it is at its greatest force (loud and wet! – lots of spray). But it flows year round. Snow remains on the trail usually until May. I prefer to visit during the drier months (July-September). The rocks at the base of the falls are dry and make it possible to cross the water and climb up behind the falls.

  10. waterfalls says:

    We are reprinting our brochure that has the map in it. This brochure does not have the information about hiking trails, only the overall Waterfall Trail, which is the map on the website. We could send you an old brochure, or you could simply print the map from the website. I’ll email you privately for your address if you are interested in having the old brochure sent. Hope you have a good time on the peninsula.

  11. Nancy says:

    Is it possible to request to have a trail map mailed to me? We would love to hike the rain forest on our upcoming trip. Thanks!

  12. mahjong says:

    Spot on with this write-up, I truly assume this web site needs rather more consideration. I’ll in all probability be again to read way more, thanks for that info.

  13. waterfalls says:

    Hi Christina!Great question. Dogs are allowed anywhere in the National Forest. Here is a link to the rules and regs for pets in Olympic National Park, which will be different than the National Forest: You might want to call ONP at 360-565-3130 to get specific information about guide dogs. What a generous project you are doing. I hope you and Puppy have a wonderful visit.

  14. Christina says:

    I will be making a trip up to Washington State and am planning on going to the Olympic Peninsula. I am alos a volunteer puppy raiser for Guide Dogs of America. I am planning on bringing my puppy with me on my trip (he will be 1 year old at the time of the trip). Are these trails somplace that I can take my puppy with me, or are animals not allowed?

  15. waterfalls says:

    Thanks for your suggestions. The website was designed to have details for the waterfalls and the brochure is simply an overview. On the next printing, perhaps we should make that clear to folks. We want everyone to find the falls they are looking for on their adventure. We appreciate your interest in our falls and your help to make the experience better for others. Hope you’ll come back for a visit to Wolf Creek Falls!

  16. Charlie Stephens says:

    I was unable to find Wolf Creek falls from your published brochure (which was in general very good). When I returned home and looked at your web site (I didn’t know it existed until I saw your brochure)it became clear where I should have gone. You should consider updating your brochure to say “park along road and follow trail to end of “Lake Mills” or add reference to the falls to the sign.

    Charlie Stephens

  17. waterfalls says:

    Hi trsparks2!

    The only brochure we have is an overview of the Waterfall Trail. We specifically put all the information about how to find individual falls and maps to them on the website, so you can print out only the ones you are visiting. Since you are staying in Forks, I’d definitely stop at Beaver Falls and Marymere Falls on your way east. Stop by Lake Crescent Lodge for lunch or a beverage to soak up the ambiance of old park lodge and the beauty of the lake. Marymere trail is very near the lodge. If you have a good part of the day to drive to Sol Duc area to see Sol Duc Falls and maybe take a soak in the mineral pools. Sol Duc Falls is one of the iconic images of Olympic National Park. A drive from Port Angeles up to Hurricane Ridge and back is about 30-45 minutes one way, but the views are spectacular of the mountains and glaciers, as well as the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Vancouver Island Canada and the San Juan Islands. There are several good restaurants in Port Angeles. Wildfire Grill, Michael’s and Bella Italia are three of our favorites. When in Sequim stop by one of the lavender farms. Sequim is self-named the Lavender Capital of North America, with about 20 lavender farms in the area. Keep your eyes open for the local herd of Roosevelt Elk. A trip to Dungeness Spit also makes a special stop. Please call us if you have other questions or we can help in any way. 800-942-4042

  18. Tiffany says:

    Hi! We wll have a short time visiting the Olympic Peninsula Mon June 28 & Tues June 29 this year.We plan to hit the highlights driving around. I noticed you named some of the more accessible Falls in a previous comment post. Do you have sny literature/maps you can mail me so I dont have to print all of the abundent info? My address is 2307 Sarasota, Friendswood Tx 77546. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated-we are staying in Forks Mon night & Sequim Tues before we head back Wed am. Thank You!!

  19. waterfalls says:

    Yes. We would be very happy to send you the brochure. Please call 360-452-8552 to request it. If no one is in the office, leave your name and address! Have a great trip. Please let us know if there is any other way we can help make your visit memorable. If you would like an Olympic Peninsula Travel Planner, we can send that to you as well. Maybe even a map of Olympic National Park if you are interested.
    PS. You know you can print detailed driving and hiking directions and a map from the website for each of the waterfalls, but we are glad to send you an overview.

  20. Cathy Howe says:

    Great website. We will be visiting in May 2010. Is it possible to get a printed map sent to me?

  21. Jen says:

    My family and I are staying in your area…Forks, WA March 28-April 3. How can we get clam digging permits and what suggestions (hikes) do you have for beggining/intermediate hikers with a 10 year old?

  22. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Yes, we know there are many falls that are not detailed on the Trail yet. As our community of falls seekers grows, we expect to expand the trail. Do you have photos and comments of other falls that you can add to our site? What time of year is best to visit Murhut Falls? The Waterfall Wanderer

  23. J. Carpenter says:

    Nice website describing many of the wonderful waterfalls in the olympics. However You seem to have forgotten one of my favorites. Murhut Falls Located in the Duckabush region. The mile long hike is well worth it.

  24. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Hi Kelly,
    Hope you and your friends have a great time. Here’s a link to Olympic National Park about reservations and park passes, etc.
    I’ve don’t Enchanted Valley when you actually drive to the trailhead. As it is now, there is an additional five miles to get there. We did it in three days, but would have liked to have at least one more day in the valley. It is beautiful beyond belief and definitely worth the hike! If May 23-27 is full moon, even better! Take lots of photographs. We will be having a spring photo contest. Keep in touch with us to find out more!

    The Waterfall Wanderer

  25. Kelly says:

    Hi! My friends and I are planning a trip in May from the 23-27th 2010 and want to see the Enchanted Valley. How do we get the pass and permit that are required and how far in advance do we need to get them. And is car vandilism that common as we will have a rental car, we are from NJ. Thanks Kelly

  26. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Hi Pam,
    Most of the park is hiking oriented, but there are some roads that spoke into the park. Hurricane Ridge Road originating in Port Angeles was recently repaved and has beautiful views of the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the San Juan Islands. There are other roads also into the Hoh Rain Forest and around Lake Quinault. Check out the website for other details about biking on the Peninsula. There is a wonderful Discovery Trail that is perfect for bikes!
    The Waterfall Wanderer

  27. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Welcome Visitor!
    The Hwy 101 loop is about 308 miles around and takes about seven hours to drive without much stopping. We estimate a 15 hour drive to make some important stops at Ruby Beach, Hoh Rain Forest, Lake Crescent and Hurricane Ridge. If you are going to try to see some waterfalls up close, the ones closest to Hwy 101 are Beaver Falls, Willaby Creek, Merriman, Gatton Creek, Marymere, Madison and Ludlow Falls. You will find them on the map for the Waterfall Trail. Print out details for each one to see what might fit into your schedule.

    You should have a wonderful drive at this time of year. The leaves have started to turn color and we have had recent rain. Have a wonderful, safe trip. Take lots of photographs of waterfalls. We will be announcing our photo contest soon!
    The Waterfall Wanderer

  28. So IL Bruno says:

    I will be in Seattle for the SEA-CHI football game the weekend of the 27th. Anyways, Friday the 25th, I was thinking of driving the Hwy. 101 loop….can’t really find a road map on here of that. Can you help with that? I’m guessing the whole loop is around 125 miles. Is that about right?

  29. pam Zaugg says:

    Is road biking appropriate at the park or is it mostly hiking? What weather should we expect Oct 5-16?

  30. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Yes. Thank you for asking! We are putting the final touches to it and arranging the prizes, which will be incentive for everyone to want to enter! We hope you have lots of wonderful photographs to share with us.
    The Waterfall Wanderer

  31. David Larrabee says:

    Are you going to have the photo contest soon?
    Thank-you, David

  32. Lindsey says:

    I am planning a trip to the falls August 21st and am curious if I can have some information mailed to me. Brochures, maps etc…. Thank you for your help

  33. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Absolutely! I’ll be in touch.
    The Waterfall Wanderer

  34. Keitha says:

    Could you send copies of the map for distribution to the public at our 4 libraries?

  35. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    We hope you will have great adventures finding waterfalls. Be sure to post your photos and let us know what you are finding!
    The Waterfall Wanderer

  36. Bruce says:

    Thank for the site. I will be spending many happy hour chasing waterfalls. Much apprecated.

  37. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Hey John,
    GPS coordinates are included on individual falls pages. Check in the parchment box on the upper right corner of each waterfall page. Have a good time finding falls!
    The Waterfall Wanderer

  38. John S says:

    It would be great in your directions to the various falls if GPS coordinates could be included.

  39. Random Guy says:

    A good update for your site-

    Today I visited Hamma Hamma Falls
    Let me tell you, washouts have raised some hell. It’s NOT easy to get there with a regular compact vehicle. However it can be done if maneuvered correctly. I’m not suggesting anything, just saying I accomplished the feat today.
    There are two rough spots, the first is where the “Road Closed” sign is. We ignored the warning. The second (and worse one) is about a mile before the falls.
    A jeep, any outdoorsy vehicle, or any vehicle sitting more than 2 feet off the ground should be able to handle it fine, but i’m not suggesting anyone pass by the Road Closed Signs. One could enjoy the 4 mile walk just fine.

    I’ve heard that the park service has no plans of repairing the roadway anytime soon, so this difficult access will have to make due.

    Just use your common sense, if you’re reluctant, turn back. There’s no cell service here, and visitors are rare. If you’re stuck, you’re really stuck.

    Have fun caching and enjoy the view!
    The falls and surrounding areas are beautiful!

  40. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Welcome September Traveler,
    The waterfall brochure is expected this week. Please call 800-942-4042 and we will send one to you when the boxes arrive. Thanks for asking!

  41. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Hi Doggie Owner!
    None of the trails in Olympic National Park allow pets, even if they are on a leash. Most of the waterfalls are in the Park. Hoko (#2) and Beaver (#3) Falls aren’t in the Park, but the trails aren’t suitable for dogs. Hoko doesn’t have a very good people trail and Beaver Falls is almost a root ladder to get down to the stream. Perfection Falls (#14) is a short bushwhack to stream level. Wynochee Falls (#15) could be good dog companion walk, as could Spoon Creek (#16) depending on the water level. We were there in early fall. The trail down to the stream was good and then we had to walk up the stream bed to Spoon Creek Falls, scrambling over downed trees and around bolders. I hope this helps. And, I hope you and your hiking pal can figure out an adventure!

    Waterfall Wanderer

  42. Patricia Sperline says:

    Can you please tell me which trails, if any, allow dogs? I will be in the area and would LOVE to hike some of these trails, but I can’t leave my pup behind. Thanks!

  43. Dolly Brock says:

    I’m planning a trip to OP in late September. Your website is spectacular! I love being able to roll over the falls (no pun intended) on the map and see a photo and description. I got your web address from the ’09/’10 Olympic Peninsula Travel Planner. Is your brochure is finished? I’d love to have a hard copy.

  44. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Hi Random Guy!
    Thanks so much for your post! Yes, we love Rocky Brook Falls, too. It is on private property, so that is why we didn’t include it on the initial Trail. Very soon there will be a place on the website to upload photos and comments about other falls. Hope you can post some Rocky Brook photos and directions at that time. We know there are lots of falls out there and hope to inspire contributions to the website.

    As far as Hamma Hamma Falls goes, if you could comment further on accessibility. we can post new information about it. That’s exactly how we hoped this site would work! Comments and content from people using the site!

    from, the Waterfall Wanderer

  45. Random Guy says:

    just wanted to let you know, possibly the most magnificent of all Olympic Waterfalls is not listed on your site. Rocky Brook Falls in Brinnon.
    Also, to my knowledge Hamma Hamma Falls is no longer accessable by car. A winter road washout, and they dont have the money for repairs. Seems that one may need to be written off the books, beautiful as it may be.

  46. Waterfall Wanderer says:

    Hi Michael,
    Thanks for your comments and “heads-up” about the the Submit Comment button/The Trail tab issue. We are still working on the site, so we appreciate your debugging for us. I have been assured that the issue has been fixed. As for time of day to photograph? Let’s see what other falls photographers have to say. Our intent is to get waterfall seekers to share their information and experiences with each other via the website. A whole community of waterfall lovers! I’ll make a note on Vincent Creek Falls page to ask for comments. Check back there to see when someone responds. Be sure to post your photos and let us know about the virtual tour. Meeker Mansion is lovely.

  47. Is the Vincent Creek Falls better for photography in the morning or afternoon? Your website is great, but adding this info to each falls would be helpful.
    PS. I couldn’t leave a comment on the Vincent Falls page because I can’t move the “Submit Comment” button before “The Trail” info covers it.
    PPS. I plan to start visiting these falls soon and build a virtual tour of them. I’ll then put your logo on my website.
    PPPS. I recently did a virtual tour of the Meeker Mansion in Puyallup. See it at: See more about me at my website.

  48. hurricane says:

    Hi Norman,
    Thanks for checking out our new website! It’s only been up for a couple days and as you can tell, we are still working out the details. Our “official” brochure is still in process, too. In the meantime, we will send you a draft brochure. Keep checking back with the website for future updates. We will send you our Travel Planner, too, to help with your trip. Have a safe journey!

  49. Annette Wilkie says:

    I found your website in the Journey magazine (AAA). Your website is perfect–pictures and good hiking directions. I can’t wait to explore!

  50. Norman Robinson says:

    I was unable to print the waterfall trail, with corresponding numbers and footnote references. Would it be possible to send me a copy? We’re planning a 6 week trip to Washington/Oregon beginning in mid-July2009. Thank you,
