Staircase Rapids Loop is a loop of the first mile of the Staircase Rapids Trails and the North Fork Skokomish River Trail. The loop canbe done either direction, but I'm guessing most people hike it clockwise, as we did. Starting from the ranger station, the trail starts along Staircase Rapids and follows the south bank of the river. There is a short side trip to look at a huge fallen Cedar which had a 14' diameter trunk. The views of the river are great, and there are plenty of places to walk downto the water for a closer look. After about a mile, there is a bridge that crosses to the north bank, which is now the North Fork Skokomish trail. We headed back east down to the trailhead. Not as many view of the river from this side. The kids loved the trail. It was very easy to follow, and well marked at all turns.
