Trail Information
The Four Stream Trail begins at the Staircase Ranger Station and leads north along the western bank of the North Fork Skokomish River. This short trail begins at only 900 feet elevation and climbs slightly as it follows the river for about a mile to a junction. The trail leading east crosses the river on a wooden bridge and heads to the North Fork Skokomish Trail. You can use this trail to return if you choose to make a loop of this short trek (turn right at the next junction). Or continue north on the Four Stream Trail from this junction to reach Staircase Rapids and Four Stream. The trail ends 1.2 miles past this junction. To return retrace your steps back to the junction and turn left crossing the North Fork Skokomish River. On the eastern bank of the river turn right and walk south to a stream crossing. This is Slate Creek, cross it and continue south one half mile to the Staircase Ranger Station.
