Autumn at Boulder Creek Falls    
Boulder Creek Falls is a small, but very powerful waterfall located a little north of Winthrop.  The falls plunge 16' in a super powerful waterfall into a semi-man made pool.  Someone has made a small dam out of branches to help pool the water up.  This seems to be for the purpose of creating a swimming hole.  It's been a couple years since I last visited, so maybe the "dam" is gone.  This isn't a spectacular waterfall, but it's easy enough to get to (if you can find the right pull-out) so if you're in Winthrop visiting Falls Creek Falls, this is a nice little side trip.
DIRECTIONS - From Winthrop, drive north onto Chewuch River Road for 6.8 miles.  Turn right onto East Chewuch Road and then left onto FR 37.  Take a right at the fork.  Two miles after turning onto 37 park at the pull-out.  You might have to do a little scrambling to get a clear view.
