Trip Report    

Day Hike - Skookum Flats

A pleasant trail to see and hear the sounds of White River, old growth forest and fall colors. Dogs and bikes are allowed on this trail but we met just one biker and two dogs.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles
  • Trailhead is easy to find on FS 73 just off Route 410.  You need to bear to the left on FS73 a few hundred yards off Route 410.  Restrooms at TH.  Although it rained the day before, the trail was pretty much mud free.  There are couple of short footbridges in need of repair but they do not cause any concern crossing them.  There are many blow downs but trail maintenance crews have done a great job of clearing them.  Major disappointment was due to the extremely dry summer season the Skookum Falls were not visible today.
