Wonderful lakes well worth the tough climb. All three lakes have excellent trout fishing. Says Raymond ''Lynx'' Menard
The Staircase to Lake Cushman segment on Skokomish River - North Fork is a nearby type II-III whitewater bit, 1.5 miles in distance. When the conditions are right this bit of Skokomish River - North Fork is a cool bit of river for kayak paddling. There's a good 3.5-mile-from-beginning-to-end category V+ whitewater section on Hamma Hamma
River nearby, the Boulder Creek to Hamma Hamma Campground sector. This section of Hamma Hamma River is well suited for whitewater paddlers who have been whitewater paddling for a bit.
