Staircase Rapids Professional Review and Guide
"The brawny North Fork Skokomish River churns through a deep canyon in the southeastern corner of Olympic National Park. Just beyond the end of the road, the river tumbles over a series of boisterous rapids and small waterfalls that are easily viewed on a short and mostly level path right along the river’s banks. Add in a beautiful and lush forest and you have a hike that is both scenic and easy enough to be fun for everyone. Because long-distance views are not an attraction here, this is an ideal choice for a bit of exercise on a rainy or cloudy day."
