This trail is just a mile long, but it's a workout -- extremely steep and primitive, you drop through an old-growth forest to reach the Lewis River. Speed is aptly named -- it provides quick access to the river and, by wading the river, a connection with the Lewis River Trail.

But use caution! The ford is only possible in the late summer when water levels are low.
