Siouxon Falls
   Skamania County, Washington

[ Physical Makeup ]  [ Pictures ]  [ Maps ]  [ Update History ]

Siouxon Falls is the first of many waterfalls hikers encounter along the length of Siouxon Creek while following its namesake trail. The falls - the second largest along the length of creek paralleling the trail - flumes 28 feet down a narrow crack in the bedrock then spills into a huge blue pool popular for swimming and fishing alike. The falls are a common turn around point for hikers looking for an easy stroll, but better waterfalls further up the drainage beg for additional exploration. A small 9 foot fall can be found along the creek a third of a mile further upstream.
