Photo of Promise Cr. Pass (seen from Skyline Trail)

In 1981, when I soloed the Tshletshy Cr. Trail, I was exposed to the Skyline Trail for the first time. I remember hikers leaving the North Fork Quinault Trail near Low Divide to start their hike along the Skyline Trail. Although I didn't know it at the time, I later became aware [see reference 1] that Herb & Lois Crisler hiked extensively along this trail when they were filming elk in the 1940s. I returned to this area in 2013 w/ 1 other person to see and enjoy the Skyline Trail area.
