This trip combines two trails that are close to one another and short enough that you can easily hike both in an enjoyable half day. Though both routes travel through dense forest and have a water feature as their destination, the two walks are actually quite different. The Ranger Hole Trail is a historic path that wanders down to a narrow little canyon and fishing hole on the rampaging Duckabush River. The Murhut Falls route, on the other hand, was only built in the last decade or so (it isn’t even on most maps yet) and travels over a ridge to one of the most impressive trail-accessible waterfalls on the Olympic Peninsula. If your time is limited and you are forced to choose, the Murhut Falls hike is somewhat more dramatic, while the Ranger Hole hike is a little easier.
