Huffman Peak Trail Details
CCW loop- Spectacular creekside single track with waterfalls and swimming holes leads to steep, sustained hike-a-bike, to alpine-style super fun single track descent back to creek. Save some energy for the climb out of the creek basin.
This 12 mile trail runs along and crosses on rustic log bridges or fords many creeks. It offers views of spectactular waterfalls including Horseshoe Falls. At the start of the trail it p asses the ruins of Hickman 's Cabin built in the 1930's and used as a base camp for fire prevention workers. The Siouxon Trail connects with Huffman Peak Trail #129, Horseshoe Ridge Trail # 140, Chinook Creek Trail #130A and Wildcat Trail # 156.
From Amboy, WA continue north on State Route 503 for about 4 miles. In Chelatchie, WA pass Mt. St. Helens National Volcanic Monument Headquarters on your left then turn right on NE Healy Road/Forest Road 54. Continue on Forest Road 54 for about 9 miles and take a left on Forest Road 57. Drive roughly 1 mile to the gravel pit on the right hand side of the road, take a sharp left onto Forest Road 5701. There are two access points on Forest Road 5701 for the Siouxon Trail. The first access point at mile marker 1 at the hairpin corner in the road is intended for horse trailers (park on the pullout on outer edge of corner); the second access point, Siouxon Trailhead, is roughly another 3 miles at the end of the narrow, rough, mostly paved road and does not accommodate horse trailers.

|In some spots the trail is washed a bit, but it's clear of any major obstacles. There are also a lot of small branches down but nothing that...|

|Deep snowpack still covers northern aspects above 3600'. This, and many downed trees means this trail still needs another month or so to clear up.|

|Lots of downed trees and branches. Brush was overgrown on Chinook Falls trail. Creek crossings were easy. Hard pack was fast and grippy.|
