INFO ABOUT TRAIL :
The SEVEN LAKES REGION is spectacular, and I HIGHLY reccommend it. It is a lake basin with a trail that
encircles it -- fully loaded it is possible to walk the trail around it in a really long day or so, but most
people take more time to see more. Along one edge is
a trail along a very narrow ridgeline, down to the lakes on the north, down to the Hoh Valley on the south with
direct, close up views of the glaciated Mt. Olympus. The Seven Lakes region is one gorilla day from the Sol Duc
trailhead. It would certainly be possible to go from Sol Duc trailhead to Sol Duc Park one day, around to Deer
Lake the next and then out in the morning, but most people take a week.
