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.

Access Info

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.

       There is a landslide at the top and should be taken with extreme caution. Do not ride this trail alone (as I did) because I did not see another rider the whole day and you are in the middle of nowhere without cell service. It’s a brutal climb to the top as I started at the bottom of siouxon trail 130. Yes it has nice views but in my opinion not worth the amount of hike and bike required.

       It's an awesome ride! Yes, there is a lot of climbing, but the descent makes it all worth while. The landslide is one or two scary steps to cross a large gully on the closed road portion below the summit of Siouxon Peak and extreme care should be taken. Cleared of logs for the most part.

       This is the best part of the “Siouxon Peak Loop”. Starts as an old road, then slowly gets steeper and steeper until you get to the peak. Fantastic view at the top, Hood, Adams, St Helens, Goat Rocks, Rainier. The ride down is mellow on steep bench for a few miles until you pass Huffman Peak, then it is a brake scorching descent all the way back down to the creek. Then you get to cross the creek and jump in to cool off. Wet chamois is a terrible thing tho, maybe strip those off before you jump in.
