This 3.2 mile trail runs north and south between Siouxon Trail #130 and Huffman Peak Trail #129. Views of the 50 foot high Chinook Creek Waterfall and a climb through old growth forest are attractions on the Chinook Trail. 

A log bridge crossing Siouxon Creek marks the beginning of this trail from Siouxon 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 creek, 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 at it's junction with Huffman Peak Trail #129 just west of Forest Road 6403. 

Special Conditions: There is no bridge over Chinook Creek. Crossings can be difficult during high water.
