This hike is part of the June 5-6 Sol Duc Hot Springs Car Camp, consisting of hiking the Spruce Railroad Trail  on Saturday, camping Saturday night at Sol Duc Campground and hiking the Sol Duc Falls Loop trail on Sunday.  Following the Sunday hike, if current rules allow it, we will have an opportunity to take a dip in the hot springs pools for a small fee.  On the drive home, there may be an opportunity for a restaurant meal stop, depending on the covid 19 situation at that time.

Signup for the car camp is by registering for both related day hikes.  Anyone registering for one of the day hikes must register for the other one and participate in the Saturday night encampment.  Leader permission for the two day hikes is required to assure compliance.  Complete details for the car camp are shown on the Tacoma Branch Events Calendar.
