Gorgeous! I can't wait to go back and do more of this.
This road leading up to the trailhead is well maintained, and once you're back there it's a wonderland of waterfalls and mushrooms. The trail is a fairly even grade most of the way. Definitely want to come back to go farther in and try camping here.
sweet place to hike, swim, or camp in the woods
It was perfect, shady trail with several waterfalls.
Gorgeous. .. plenty of huckleberries to snack on... beautiful waterfalls .. one of my favorite trails for sure.
This was the perfect trail for a day out with the family. The route between the trailhead and Chinook Falls was mostly rolling without any harsh uphill climbs. We will most definitely be visiting again, only next time we will be packing in a tent and some sleeping bags!
This hike was amazing! This was our first hike with our two young kids (5 and 7 years) and they did great! We needed to hold their hands a few times throughout the hike because some of the pathways were narrow and steep, but they did fine. The waterfalls were absolutely breathtaking. We sat down on one of the benches at Siouxon Falls and ate lunch which was so relaxing. Such amazing natural beauty. I would definitely do this hike again.
What a gorgeous hike, the well maintained trail meanders through a thick lush green forest along side Siouxon creek. there are also several picnic/camp spots along the way. The water is crystal clear with a few awesome swimming holes to cool off in on a hot day and it was a hot one! The falls are outstanding. I would recommend this hike to anyone for either a day hike or overnight!
Great trail! My first time in a backpack trip in 25+ years, my son's first ever. Wonderful cover, lots of water fill spots, beautiful waterfalls. Several camping spots, though not an abundance.
super fun!! good place too go swimming as well!
it's perfect lots of water perfect for trail running and hiking lots of signs tons of camping spots lots of falls and wooden bridges water is crystal clear and it's quiet can beat that
Long drive to get there, but that makes for less traffic on the trail. Easy access brings the crowds. Tons of clover and ferns everywhere you look and plenty of options for backpacking. We will be back to stay the night. Go hike it!
This is a rather long trail but has many camping locations, all with the sound of the stream nearby. We only walked 3 miles of it, but it was a very enjoyable hike. It's not difficult as it follows the stream. There are several waterfalls and deep pools, so, plenty of scenery.
You do share it with mountain bikers, but all we encountered were courteous. The most difficult aspect was the drive there. The last few miles of the road are rather sketchy.
This is a great starter trail. While not the most challenging, Its a perfect weekend trail to take kids on or just to get away for a while. Its also a great place to fish at the falls.
Excellent Trail and well maintained with two you bridges and picnic area. Aqua blue pools and waterfalls make this a very pleasant hike whether you start at where the trail 130 first meets FR 7501 (10.5 mile out and back to the falls) or at the Siouxon Trailhead at the end of the road (8 mile out and back to the falls). I did this hike in conjunction with a loop of Huffman Peak, on the way up crossing the creek at Wildcat Creek (trail 156) which is just before the second turn off for Horseshoe Ridge ( trail 140) Be aware Green map has these junctions at the same spot they are approximately 0.2 mile apart. On the back down took 130A which comes out at the falls. Only word of caution is this trail which is narrow at times is used by bicyclists who can be at high speeds coming down the hill after the old forestry road section of the trail. However Siouxon Trail is well worth the journey to get there especially if you can hike it during the week rather than the weekend.
I thought this hike was easy and had a beautiful pool of sparkling turquoise water. I didn't do the whol 9.6 miles, but I did do about 6.
