Day Hiking

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.
