Skookum Flats Professional Review and Guide
"Skookum Flats Trail is one of the most entertaining pieces of extreme singletrack in the Pacific Northwest. This popular loop utilizes Skookum Flats Trail, Dalles River Trail, a short stretch on WA 410, and White River Trail. This is an excellent and challenging 11-mile circuit.
Difficulty rating for the loop: strenuous. Skookum Flats Trail is a lesson in humility. It is technically demanding, with innumerable roots, rocks, drop-offs, staircase climbs, and switchbacks. Remember, there is no shame in walking; besides, it is better than dying. Beginners and intermediates will enjoy out-and-back excursions from the south end of Skookum Flats Trail. Scenery: Impressive old-growth and the beautiful White River."
