Skookum Flats is a highly technical and difficult trail carved through beautiful old-growth forest on the slopes of Mount Rainier. It is considered by many to be among the best in the country. Despite its name, this trail is anything but flat. This 7 mile (one way) trail can be ridden out and back or can be used in conjunction with the Suntop trail. You can also turn right at the end of the trail and head back out to hwy 410, turn right and go back up about 5 miles to road 7160.
How to get there:
From Enumclaw, drive East on Highway 410. After about 30 miles, keep your eyes out for road #7160 on the right. (if you see the Visitor's Information Center, you have gone too far. But since you're there, you might want to pick up a map of the trail). After turning onto road #7160, cross the bridge and immediately turn left into the small parking area. The trail head is across the road.
