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
11/26/2014: Trails are not maintained in the winter and early spring. Trailheads are typically not accessible late fall through late spring due to snow. Please call the local Ranger District office for up-to-date information.
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.
