The Stettatle Creek Trail begins near the tiny company town of Diablo and travels roughly three miles up the Stettatle Creek Valley. Along the way, it passes three small waterfalls. Bucket Creek Falls drops over this gorgeous 2-stepped waterfall just upstream from the Stetattle Creek Trail. The falls drop about 30' and then 10' over back-to-back fan shaped drops. The rocks around the falls are covered with moss and absolutely beautiful. While not overly large, this is one of the prettier waterfalls in the entire Ross Lake area.
