USA Murhut Falls

  • Please log in or sign up for free to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
The narrow ravine which the falls drop into is lined with huge Cedar trees and a lush temperate rainforest under-story of Salal bushes and ferns. A short distance downstream from the main falls there are two smaller falls, each dropping about 10 feet, which can be accessed from social trails which drop off the main trail just before reaching the main falls.

Photography Tips

The trail to Murhut Falls ends at a viewpoint north of and looking directly across to the falls. There are several social trails down to the base of the falls but there is no need to go the the base of the falls to get a good shot. The view from the official viewpoint is excellent. Suggest using a wide angle lens. The falls face north and will be in the shade most of the day.

Travel Information

Murhut Falls is located in the Duckabush River area of Olympic National Forest, west of Highway 101. Drive about 3-1/2 miles south of the Dosewallips River in Brinnon, or just under 5 miles north of the small town of Triton, and turn west onto Duckabush Road. Follow this road for 6 miles, then head left on NFR 2150, following signs for Murhut Falls. Follow Road 2150 for another mile and a half to the trailhead, following road signs where applicable. The trail leads to the falls in an easy 0.8 mile. The last .1 mile to the waterfall overlook has some steep drop-offs on one side of the trail, so use caution. The total elevation gain is 300 ft (91 meters).
