Hike of the week: Skookum Falls and beyond, Trail No. 1194 to the suspension bridge site

Hike description: The Skookum Flats Trail is a modest hike that is perfect for families, beginners and people testing out boots or other equipment. It's an easy walk through old growth forest along the White River. Yellow violets, trilliums, vanilla leaf and salmonberry bloom along the trail in season. Notice the tangled rootballs on fallen trees that have succumbed to the river during the floods.
