Going down?

I'm considering doing this trail in the down-hill direction by hiking one-way from Hurricane Ridge VC to Elwha. However, from some of my hikes in the past (Mount Marcy for example) I have found the downhill direction to actually be worse than the uphill because of the strain on the knees. This could be linked to the fact that these downhill hikes were done after their uphill counterparts. Since I do not currently own a set of hiking poles, would you recommend them as a necessity for this hike?
