SW Washington Map

truck now required to get to trail head. also right now I would consider some of it a snow hike.

This trail is not currently accessible. I tried to do it last weekend and about 3 or 4 miles from the trailhead the road is completely blocked by trees. Bummer!!

The road wasn't as terrible as we expected it to be. The trail was pleasant and the falls were amazing. Good hike for all ages and abilities.

Waterfall payoffs every couple miles plus a birch forest, lots of forest to explore and very quiet in January. Will be back.

Amazing falls and crystal clear water!

Quick and easy but a great payoff. We did it in the rain and snow- the beautiful colors of the fall leaves with the crisp white snow made it a truly magical experience.

Great trail for a first backpacking trip! Ended up camping just past Chinook Falls. Not too busy due to below 40 degree weather

Dogs are aloud on this trail head according to 'Washington Trails Association'. As long as they are on leash.

Loved this hike.

A little confusing driving out. Trail was gorgeous with ups and downs. Took us 2h24m to get to the waterfall, which was breathtaking! Definitely worth the drive and 9 mile round trip hike.

Backpacked Labor Day weekend so it was busy as expected. Spots filled up quick but got a nice spot that fit 2 tents and a hammock past the river crossing even after a late start. The last falls (chinook) was our favorite. If you walk a little ways away you can find a little hidden spot to cliff jump. Not much views besides waterfalls and a creek. Decent flip flop/water shoes came in handy.

Starting from the Huffman/Siouxon Creek Trailhead (marked on FR 5701 with a sign that simply says "trail"), you'll pass though old growth steadily going down until you reach the fork with Huffman Trail forking left. That trail (about half mile) heads steeply down to the creek with a small campsite and water access. Continue straight on the Siouxon Creek Trail through old growth, and over small creek crossings. First week of September they were all almost dried up, but a few had enough of a trickle to fill a water bottle. Early in the morning you'll catch views of deer. The trailhead says 3 miles to the main Trailhead for Siouxon Creek Trail to the falls...but my Fitbit tracked me hiking 6.47 miles. We camped roughly 3/4 mile after the bridge, not continuing on to the falls because it was SO BUSY. We we're trying to hike away from people, not toward them. All in all, a great hike though. No spectacular views, but if you just like to hike bouncy, moderately graded, old growth trails aways from people, you'll get it starting at the first trail marker. The waterfall trail marker has practically a parking lot, there were about 40 cars when we hiked by and could see the road.

Absolutely gorgeous day on the trail. Very dog friendly with plenty of cool off opportunities for everyone. We went to the upper falls from lower falls, around 5-6 miles in total. Worth the drive off of I-5!

used to hike this trail when my kids were little. Gorgeous!

camp sites well taken care of. Only bad thing is the outhouse toilets smell horrible. Other than that the trails and waterfalls are absolutely beautiful. Will definitely come back next summer.

very nice trail.
If you try to hike from lower to middle falls you will run into a landslide which stops you from getting to the middle falls by .25 miles. beware.

Long but rewarding. Definitely recommend taking the lower trail. When you get to the creek (right after a noticeable increase in incline) the trail can be easy to miss. Hike perpendicular to the creek to continue. Don't try to hike up the rocky creek path like we did at first.

The lake is gorgeous and very peaceful.

Rough road to get to the trail but definitely worth it. You can swim at the base of the waterfall. Very light traffic so it's a great place to get away from the crowds

amazing views and fairly easy trail to maneuver

Great place. One of the most beautiful places I have hiked and camped. Like others have said around the web, the last couple miles of the drive to the trailhead is really rough. Its paved but roots have destroyed it so beware and take it nice an slow. Totally worth it though! Waterfall after waterfall! We will definitely be doing this one again.

Very rocky uphill dirt road for about 6 miles before getting there, recommend a high sitting vehicle with good tires. other then that the drive and hike is beautiful

Great time trail steep and fun

We got to the trail head just before 9am and the parking lot was fairly empty. The trail was in great shape as it followed along a nice creek. Before we new it, we made it to June lake. The lake is gorgeous with a perfect waterfall flowing into the far side. Very picturesque! Check out just how beautiful this area is by watching the video below!


Beautiful falls. The middle falls and the swimming holes are definitely worth some time spent. The lower falls is huge but not very much parking at the lower river falls lot.

pleasant hike. nice campsites. went midweek and there was light traffic.

This was a beautiful hike. You have views of the mountain from different points along the trail and the lava flow stopped near the lake so you can explore that as well. There are a couple of waterfalls flowing into the lake and it's a gorgeous spot to have a picnic. We took our dog along and she had fun as well.

My husband and I went on this trail with our two dogs and four kids (6, 9, 11, and 14). It was amazing! We stayed at the falls and played for about 45 min before heading back. The steep downhills were the most difficult part for the kids, but they managed just fine. It took us 2.5 hours to get to the falls, but we took our time. Our dogs managed the trail, even log bridges and obstacles, easily. I HIGHLY recommend this trail! (It would be nice if the trail had markings at the points the trail forks. We stayed to the right and it worked out, but we always looked at each other until one of the boys would announce that I had gotten us lost. Have fun!

Beautiful! The road up to get there is horrible. Big cracks and you have to really watch and be careful so you don't bottom out. The trail on the other hand is worth it. So beautiful. Felt like I was walking through a magazine. People had hiked in and were camping and I was jealous. I loved every minute of it. Hiked about 3 miles in and then back out.

Awesome trail, trailhead well marked. Great place to put your feet in the water along the way. The falls at the end are most definitely worth the hike. The log crossings are easy and well maintained.
