Trail shared by Bruce Hope

A short, but steep, trail from Siouxon Creek past Wildcat Falls, to the Huffman Peak Trail #129.

Bruce Hope

Features River/Creek · Swimming · Waterfall

Crossing Siouxon Creek can be challenging, especially when waters are high. Be careful of shallow but fast-moving water and slippery rocks. Trail may be blocked by snow between November and June.

Description

Wildcat Trail #156 begins at its intersection with Siouxon Trail #130, fords Siouxon Creek, then climbs a steep and rocky grade past the base of Wildcat Falls. From there it continues climbing to a viewpoint above the 75-foot cascading waterfall. Continuing up along Wildcat Ridge, the trail gains over 2,000 feet in elevation before ending at Huffman Peak Trail #129. At this point you can head southwest on the Huffman Peak Trail #129 to meet the Siouxon Trail to complete a loop or you can turn northeast on the Huffman Peak Trail #129 to complete a loop using the Chinook Creek Trail #130A.
