Love this Hike, it's beautiful no matter how far in you hike. I recommend going all the way to Wildcat Falls if you have the time.

Really nicely maintained trail. Parking at the trail head is crazy and please be a good human being and buy a northwest forest pass. Awesome waterfalls.

My husband and I hiked about half of this trail. We came from the upper trail head to Chinook Falls and back. The first 3 miles was through beautiful forest but didn't change much. We started late on Friday and got a very nice camping spot right on the creek about 4 miles in. The next day we hikes to the falls and WOW! Beautiful scenery all the way around! Great waterfalls along the trail which we loved! We were going to stay a second night but our summer sleeping bags weren't quite warm enough, so we decided to make the trek back. Our second day hiking I feel like we over did it a bit but we survived lol. The trail was heavily trafficked and there was some people who had no camp/backpacking etiquette we stopped at a site where we considered camping for the second night and we are making our lunch and eating and have all of our stuff out and some people just walked right into our campsite to use our access point to the creek didn't say anything to us at all. Which my husband and I thought was weird and rude. Bottom line beautiful hike would recommend- also don't go into someone else's campsite that's just not cool.

It has been busy past few weekends. A lot of people from oregon. I was glad to see the ranger writing tickets to all the people who didnt have passes. buy a discover pass and northwest forrest pass. its cheaper than a ticket

Went on a multi-family day hike Satruday from the main TH to Chinook Falls. 3 adults (ages 38,40,62), 8 kids (ages 7,8,8,10,11,13,14,14) and 3 dogs (1 lab, 2 small ones). The road up is in relatively excellent shape. We took an Excursion 4x4 and Highlander 4x4 and had no problems with the busted up paved roads. The forecast called for heavy rains but those came on Friday and Sunday. Even with the heavy rain the day before, the trail was in amazing shape. We say a few people camping, but the majority of the camp sites were open, probably due to the foretasted rain. 8.7 miles total out and back from TH to Chinook Falls. This is a must hike if you live in SW WA or even NW Oregon. Remember, it does require a NW Forest Pass, $5 day e-pass can be purchased online and printed, that's what we did.

went out backpacking over memorial day weekend. it was crowded! Was glad to see the ranger handing out tickets to cars without passes, mainly from oregon.

I did about 9 miles of this trail (out and back) and it was amazing! Lots of waterfalls, lots of places to climb around the waterfalls and lots of little swimming holes if it's warm enough. The trail was not very hard at all just kinda meanders with no crazy elevation gains. Will definitely take people back here.

Beautiful, crystal clear water!

Awesome trail .....

Amazing falls and crystal clear water!

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Great hike. Real life fairy garden. Lots of Chrystal clear water

So I want to explain the trail a little bit because I was super confused as I went. My friend and I decided to do the entire trail and it seems most people don't (I now understand why

Beautiful area. Road to trailhead is very primitive, recommend extreme caution.

Beautiful trail along silicon creek, plenty of cozy campsites and places to access water. No campsites after mile 5.5-6... the last few miles up to forest road 58 are all up hill!!!

Great walk along the creek with amazing waterfalls. A lot of camping spots along the way. About 6 miles in is the last camping spot so be prepared to turn around at the end of the trail and hike back down the switch backs to a camp spot.

Perfect choice for our first overnight trip. Absolutely beautiful and our Aussie loved cooling off in the creek along the trail. It was fairly busy but being a holiday weekend it was expected. Great hike!!

Actual day was Sunday March 19, 2017. Just now getting to my review. Great hike along the river. Lots of waterfalls. We turned around after 4 miles making it an 8 mile hike. Mostly flat with around 875 foot elevation gain/loss.

Great trail for biking

This was our first hike. We moved here from a city in the Midwest and never had the opportunity to really take in the activity but since relocating to the PNW we are trying to take advantage of the beauty it has to offer. It packed a punch for us being a little out of shape but it was worth it. The river was beautiful and you walk along it the whole way. We only made it about a mile and a half to two miles but we will be back once we get our wind.

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.
