National Trails Day! on the Olympic Peninsula. For 103 years, this trail has remained situated in the southeast corner of the Olympic Peninsula parallel to the South Fork of the Skokomish River, only moving slightly to adjust to the whims of the river. We’ll spend the day cleaning up from the winter rains and high winds.

Please join us for a picnic/potluck after the work party at the LeBar Campground. Please bring a dish to share. Camping is available at the campground or hike down to the river with your tent.

This trail meanders through ancient forest and parallels the South Fork of the Skokomish River. Points of interest include the old LeBar Claim, Church Creek Shelter and Harps Shelter. Olympic Elk (Roosevelt) can be observed throughout the river basin provided one is quiet and does not approach too closely.

Driving directions:
Take US Highway 101 north from Shelton or south from Hoodsport to the Skokomish Valley Road. This road is 6 miles north of Shelton and 7 miles south of Hoodsport. Turn west onto the Skokomish Valley Road. We will meet at State Fish Hatchery located on the corner of Highway 101 and the Skokomish Valley Road at 8:30 am.
