I paid (dearly) for a copy of this book on Amazon and it was worth every penny. Just wonderful to read. Highly recommended.

It is a good one.

How much did you pay? Found several for under $100 on a Abebooks, along with a few in the $150 range that are in great condition. I believe I got my copies for about $75 each.

Absolutely nothing wrong with free!

To what extent do you think the North Skokomish Trail parallels the one O'Neil built? The end of the book suggests that the trail eventually was abandoned and overgrown. It was cool to think that to some extent I've walked where O'Neil did. To read about his earlier expedition in the Elwha area was cool also, considering that I can now penetrate the inner Olys on FR 2880.

Pictures of Olympus in the book are also motivating.

From Four Stream to the trail junction with the Six Ridge Trail and the NF Skokomish Trail it has been overgrown since there is no current trail along that section of O’Neil’s trail. Jumbos Leap is somewhere along here. The current trail is on the opposite side of the river until just past Big Log. Though I remember reading that a Boy Scout group marked this section since it has historical significance since it isn’t traveled anymore by people.

Anyway from the Six Ridge Trail junction to First Divide, the NF Skokomish trail, for the most part, follows O’Neils main path; not the many side paths they did for exploration purposes, like the mule trail they attempted to build up Six Ridge.

The North Fork Skokomish will take a lot more meaning on when I hike it next.
