It’s a great trail for a family all kinds of ways to get to the river and be on the water’s edge with lots of overlooks! But beware on the back end on the fourth stream, a lot of the trail is over grown and washed out and hard to locate and stay on, Can be very tricky for a novice hiker.

Really pretty trail, especially if you just incorporate it into the Staircase Rapids Loop, but the route of this map doesn’t exist. There’s nowhere to cross the Skok river where it says once, let alone twice. You can hop across the rocks and there’s a trail on the other side of Four Stream. We were with younguns and decided against it, after detouring up the SW side of the stream and it getting pretty primitive. But we had a gorgeous spot to eat lunch at and couldn’t have asked for better weather.

The trail is kept well but the stream crossing is deep

My second time up this trail, this time with my 10th month baby. Trail is relatively crowded up until Beaver Flats then it starts to thin out. Trail maintenance after that point also goes down.

Beautiful River rapids! The trail is a bit crowded within the first mile or so, but it begins to clear up after that. If you plan on doing the whole route, be prepared to cross the river at a fairly dangerous spot (fast moving water and slick rocks). Get there early as parking goes fast.

Great family hike. Beautiful river, rapids, wildlife, forest, bumpy trail can be difficult for kids under 5 or for elderly people.

Decent trail, pretty easy with very little elevation gain. Talked to a few folks that went on the wrong trail and took the Skokomish instead. You have to go across the bridge at the Ranger Station to start this trail.

Had some little ones with our group ranging in age from 3-12. Fun trail all the way around. Good views, minimal elevation gain. Looking forward to going back.
