Update

A classic rugged river trail along the west bank of the White River.

Anthony Harasimowicz

Overview

Check conditions in late Spring for any washed out or significantly eroded sections.

A Northwest Forest Pass is required to park at the trailheads at either end.
Meander along side the deceptively powerful White River on the rolling Skookum Flats Trail. Ride over endless roots, pass moss-covered logs, and soak in the firm tread of this Pacific Northwest classic.

Description

This short, but rugged trail rolls along the White River through thick, dense, old-growth forest. The relatively flat trail has several technical sections packed with roots and constant short ups and downs that will challenge riders of all levels.

Enjoy the shady cover as you navigate countless drainages that feed into the river. Highlights along the route include Skookum Falls and views of the Palisade Cliffs across the highway.

Take on Skookum Flats as an out and back or string together an all day epic as this trail is a just a sample of the riding available in the area. It can easily be combined with several adjacent routes (Sun Top, Ranger Creek Trail, Palisades Trail, White River Trail) for an all day epic.

The roots are super slippery when wet. Basically no elevation gain. Fun out and back. 12.5mi — 2h 00m

What is IMBA epic? Apr 9, 2015


Came here on a super rainy day and was constantly challenged by all the wet roots. Jun 28, 2015


This is a short, fun little section right near the super challenging Ranger Creek loop. It's very majestic in the woods here. Rocks, slippery roots, and short bursts of hills make you pay attention. Nov 11, 2015
