Views of Chinook Creek Waterfall and a climb through an oldgrowth forest are attractions on the Chinook Trail. There is no bridge over Chinook Creek and fording the creek can be difficult during high water.
At a Glance
06/05/2014: Bridge remains closed due to unsafe bridge conditions.
A log bridge crossing Siouxon Creek marks the beginning of this trail. The trail fords Chinook Creek twice which can be 2 to 3 feet deep until late summer; therefore, proceed with caution. After crossing, the 50-foot cascade of Chinook Creek Waterfall comes into view as it plunges down to a clear green pool. The trail then climbs through an old-growth forest before ending on Forest Road 6403.
Special Conditions: There is no bridge over Chinook Creek. Crossings can be difficult during high water.
