Given the decent weather we are supposed to have this weekend, my wife and I along with our small kids are thinking of taking a trip over to the peninsula to hike Murhut Falls for the first time as it looks beautiful and I've always wanted to check it out.

My question is this- my wife prefers only to hike in areas where there is some reasonable access to modern restroom facilities- she won't use vault toilets.  So can anyone tell me if there are facilities available anywhere within just a few miles of this trailhead where we'd be able to stop for that purpose?  I know there is a ranger station not too far down the road- but does that have true facilities available for people to use?

I know it's an odd question, but thanks in advance for any responses!

Ah, I had forgotten about Dosewallips.  Are the restrooms there open in winter?  I know we've come across some state parks where those are closed this time of year to save money.

A number of campsites there are open year round, so it's probable that a restroom is open.   Probably need a Discover Pass.   You could also call the park at 360-796-4415 and ask them.

Quilcene Ranger Station has a very nice public flush toilet restroom, helpful staff and info on area hikes.  You do not need a Discover Pass for a 15 min restroom visit at Dosewallips State Park.  You may want to consider a stop at Rocky Brook Falls,  not a hike but a short walk from the road,  no restrooms but right outside Brinnon.

Thanks for the info!  Good to know.  I have a Discover pass, so no worries about stopping at Dosewallips if that is where we go.
