Trail Overview

FS 2340 is your classic Pacific-Northwest Forest Service Road, that happens to lead you to a historical landmark, High Steel Bridge. High Steel is a truss arch bridge that sits 375ft above the South Fork of the Skokomish River making it the tallest railroad bridge in the US. Thankfully, it was converted to a roadway in 1964 and is now used by hikers and offroad enthusiasts as a gateway into the Olympic National Forest.


There is no difficulty unless it's Winter-time and covered with snow.
