IMPORTANT NOTE: THE DIFFICULTY WITH WHICH I CATALOG MY ROUTES IS REFERRED TO MOUNTAINS USED TO WALK, WHO UNWIND WITH FACE ON ALL THE LAND, NOT FOR OCCASIONAL HIKERS. IF YOU HAVE LITTLE EXPERIENCE, ADD ONE MORE DEGREE TO THE DIFFICULTY OF MY ROUTES SO YOU WILL NOT GET SURPRISES

Interesting circular route within Olympic National Park, in the state of Washington, in the northwestern United States. It is an immense national park (like almost all those in this country) and includes a very varied landscape, from mountains with glaciers to infinite beaches, all decorated with coniferous forests that cannot be larger or shady, in short, a paradise for lovers of nature in its purest form.
We spent the night at the campsite next to the Sol Duc hot springs complex. I no longer remember if we started walking from the same campsite (most likely) or from a nearby parking lot. After crossing the complex, we began to climb the Mink Lake Trail, entering a lush coniferous forest, until we reached the small lake that gives the path its name. We continue climbing until we reach a crossroads where we turn left over the watershed and then begin to lose altitude and approach beautiful Deer Lake. We continue down Canyon Creek until we reach the beautiful Sol Duc Falls. From these we return along the camping path, which avoids going on the road.
It is a route without great difficulties through a very beautiful landscape if you like dense forests and lonely lakes.
Route made in August 2011 but done manually in April 2020.
