Sol Duc River

River Description

FUN FACT: Fun river when there's water to fill in the boulder gardens.

SEASON: Winter rain storms. Generally best when rivers are moderately high.

ACCESS: From Highway 101 mile 216.4 turn south on FR 2918. Follow this road to mile 3.0 and the bridge across the Sol Duc. This is the put-in or use an access downstream closer to Highway 101. The take-out is at Klahowya Campground (use the downstream of the two bridges). The campground is located at Highway 101 mile 211.9 on the north side of the road or continue a short distance downstream to the access on the south side of Highway 101.


Several boulder gardens. The most challenging rapid, "Bridge Drop", can be viewed from the Highway 101 bridge at mile 212.6 just upstream from the take-out.
