Lower South Fork Skokomish Trail Professional Review and Guide
"You can ride the Lower South Fork Skokomish as a 20.9-mile loop taking paved and gravel roads up and the singletrack down, or as researched, trail up and road down. The trail itself is up and down, up and down, and up and down some more, steeply. The slight road return descent is a nice, smooth contrast -- despite a little washboarding -- to the sharp roller-coaster trail, and provides some pretty scenery.
Hardier riders will tackle 10.4 miles of singletrack each way, getting revenge on the steep, barely rideable 0.5 miles from the lower trailhead, on which some walking is required. This is an excellent, advanced-level trail through lush old-growth stands and across feeder creeks to the river. The ride constantly alternates short, tough climbs with fun, sometimes rooty, rocky, and twisty descents. There is no bad way to ride this route."
