Siouxon Trail - Trail, Amboy, Washington

Siouxon Trail - Trail, Amboy, Washington

DESCRIPTION

Small 3-4 mile section on FR 5701 to the end of 5701. Mainly single track downhill with several small hills and water run-off crossings. Very enjoyable downhill single track sections offering high speeds, cornering and jumping. Trail continues on for another 8-9 miles. Many people ride the trail from trail head on FR58 down to the end of FR5701. Have not tried that direction yet.

This is a SICK trail. It's super fast and buff on the lower 8 miles and we just finished cleaning out the upper 5 miles, which are steeper in places and still need some work, but overall this is a classic trail. The old growth, the creek, the rippin' downhill with great flow, and the challenging sections that we just cleared make this a must ride if you're in the area! Supposedly the Chelatchie Rd from Amboy is passable now, either way the trail is accessible from Carson, WA and the Wind River Hwy up to Rd 58. Have fun!!!

Customer Service

Either direction would be great, it's an out and back. The low point is in the middle so you're climbing out regardless of direction.

Unfortunately I didn't make it to the trail today, FR54 is washed out in a few places 5 miles from the trail head! I took a few wrong turns and was wiped out from climbing....plan to try again when I have more time. Stay tuned....

This trail is a lot of fun! Some of the downhills are fast and smooth, and some are full of roots and rocks. The climbs aren't too difficult, but definitely make you feel like you earned it. After riding ov 16 miles, the last climb back to my car just about killed me :-) There are some obvious log rides and some not so obvious ones along the trail, so if you're into that sort of thing, keep a look out. The last 2 miles (out)had some downed trees and washed out areas that required hike-a-bike, but nothing too bad. There are awesome views of the creek and water falls along the way.

Customer Service

There are two parking areas/trailheads. The first is on the left side of FR 5701 about 100-125 yards after a sharp right turn. The trail is a kind of hard to see, so keep a close watch. The second trailhead is at the end of FR 5701. According to my computer, starting at the first trailhead you can do an 18 mile out and back. According to the book I have, starting from the second trailhead means a 12.5 mile out and back.

Just a quick update on an old-time favorite. Unfortunately, this trail has never been more popular, but it is in really great shape. Enough climbing to challenge most anyone. Mostly rolling singletrack with great views and stream crossings.

Customer Service

I like using the upper trailhead on 5701 and riding down to the waterfall and bridge and back...that climb in the last 1.5miles up to the trailhead can seem pretty brutal (but short)

This is one beautiful piece of ST that rolls along above the crystal clear creek with views of old growth forests and waterfalls. I loved it. Its not technical, but its a very smooth trail except for a couple of skiddish cliff parts and creek crossings.

Customer Service

I started from thed of Rd. 5701 at the trail head and followed the main trail (130) for 6 or 7 miles and came back.

I rode this ride last Sunday. I was impressed by the smooth, mostly mellow trails. Nothing too technical. However, the climb to the upper parking lot got my heart beating pretty hard. The creek is gorgeous: clear and nice. A great place to take a dog. Keep an eye on Fido or risk losing them. A great ride that would be nice in the heat of summer. I'm sure it is a mud pit in the winter with too much water to cross unless you want to freeze to death from hypothermia. A must ride in the area. Very nice. Hikers kind of get in the way.

Customer Service

Ride from the upper parking lot, so you can get the awesome downhill right away. You also end with a nice climb.

I really like this trail. It goes through forest along Siouxon Creek which has a few waterfalls and awesome pools to take a dip in on those hot days. No steep long hills just pretty much short ups, downs and level sections. Nothing to technical.

Customer Service

I like to start at the end of the forest service road where the main trailhead is and head up the trail going east to where to trail crosses over Siouxon. Then I head back doing an out and back. Aprox. 11 miles.

This trail rocks! Go early as others, including backpackers, know this as well. If you live in PDX, it will take you 2x as long to get there then you think when looking at a map-1.5-1.75 hours.

Customer Service

Main trail out and back for as long as you want, the trail goes for 16+miles

Fun downhill section riding from mid-point on FR5701 to the end of FR5701. This single track trail offers fast speeds, cornering and jumping.

A few hills and several water run-off sections plus a few rocky areas make for some technical riding.

Many ride the opposite direction from FR58 to the end of the road at FR5701.

Customer Service

Amboy Washington to FR54 to FR57 to FR5701 to mid-way point. Trail head after a hair pin turn.

Often damp singletrack that is easy to fly on. After the first 3 miles, the trail runs flat along a very scenic stream, with ups and downs of a couple hundred feet max. Entirely under tree cover, so nice on a hot day. Lots of hikers on the weekend. A rather weak 5 stars, but it is closer to 5 than 4.

Okay for tough beginners, but intermediate and advanced will have more fun.

Customer Service

Start at the first (most western) trailhead, ride downhill 3 miles past the other trailhead, keep going about 6 more miles, and turn around right before the long, very rocky climb.
