    Hiked Siouxon Creek for the first time 10/8/19, it is a magical place and a must see! 9.10 miles with 1318ft elevation gain in 6hrs 10 mins total time, 5hrs 26mins moving time and 46mins stopped time. I hiked from Siouxon Creek Trailhead parking to Chinook Falls out and back. The drive in (watch out for fallen trees) isn't too bad till the last 4 miles, but I think with care in driving any car can make it to the TH. There are big potholes and paved/ dirt patches. Great for small children at the lower elevation, but there is a Creek washout on the trail before Chinook Falls. Not handicap friendly. 1 other vehicle in the lot when I arrived at 6:08am, saw 5 people and 3 dogs after 11am. With 3 other cars in the lot when I left. Parking area is gravel and fits 20+ cars. No bathrooms at this TH. Great camping spots on trail with beautiful views and some even have picnic tables. Trail is pretty spacious till the second big waterfall, then turns to single file.Hiked Siouxon Creek for the first time 10/8/19, it is a magical place and a must see! 9.10 miles with 1318ft elevation gain in 6hrs 10 mins total time, 5hrs 26mins moving time and 46mins stopped time.

    Although there aren't a lot of wildflowers on this hike, the views of Siouxon Creek and the Waterfalls make it worthwhile.
