1. The Ranger Hole Marker
Inscription. It is no wonder that the churning fishing hole one mile down this trail is called Ranger Hole. Emery Finch, and many other early Rangers were avid fishermen, wearing a well traveled path between the cabin and their favorite fishing spot. Fishing was an important way to put food on the table so far from town.

This spectacular spot on the Duckabush River still provides excitement and beauty to all who venture to the end of the trail. Please use caution around this turbulent, rushing river.

 
Erected by Olympic National Forest.
