About This Trail

[Total: 2    Average: 4.5/5]

The Siouxon Creek Trail wanders through beautiful old-growth forest. The canopy covered trail will lead you past a variety of waterfalls. The beginning of the trail is unmarked but soon after embarking, you’ll arrive a sign letting you know you’re headed the right way.

After about 3 miles, you’ll cross over a wooden bridge and pass the junction with Horseshoe Ridge Trail. If you follow this junction another 2 miles, you’ll come to Horseshoe Creek. Follow a short spur trail 0.1 miles past the creek and you will be rewarded with a view of Horseshoe Falls, a nearly 50-foot cascade.

If you opt to pass the junction, you’ll arrive at Souixon Falls in about 2 miles. Many smaller, side trails will offer you a variety of viewing opportunities.

If you feel like continuing the journey, you’ll arrive at 14-Mile Falls in about 1.8 miles.  Follow the creek and cross a log bridge leading to a signed junction. Continue over the footbridge to see Chinook falls before heading back.

Being outside is how I re-charge. It gives me perspective, fills me with gratitude and provides an opportunity to disconnect from the chaos of everyday life. I am fortunate to share this passion with my amazing husband and our son.  I was born and raised in the PNW but I love exploring any area I can get to. One of my favorite things about Hike it Baby is that I have a built in community of friends to provide trail suggestions anywhere we go.

Just past the Mt. St. Helens National Monument Headquarters, turn right onto NE Healy Road. Drive 5.2 miles before coming to a fork. Keep right here and at the next junction, driving another 4.0 miles to turn left on FR 57 heading uphill. After 1.3 miles, make a sharp left onto paved FR 5701. Drive 3.7 more miles to where the road ends at the trailhead. The trail heads down into the forest about 100 feet before the end of the road.
