Creek begins its life in Crystal Lake on the north side of Lennox Mountain.
Upon exiting the lake, the creek begins a drop of around 1200' before
joining Money Creek. Most of that height takes place in a continuous
series of slides, plunges, and horsetails that constitues Crystal Lake
Falls. The picture on the right was taken from Bing Aerial Images and
shows the entire waterfall from above.
The very obscured view from the road is nothing to get excited about. It should be possible to get closer views with enough work, but I can't confirm that at this time. For now, this page is just up to document the existence of the waterfall. Perhaps in the future I will have better pictures and information on this amazing looking waterfall. If that happens, expect the rating to go WAY up on this one.
From Highway 2 near Skykomish, turn onto Miller River Road. Almost
immediately turn right onto Money Creek Road. Follow the road for
around 5 miles until you see the large basin of Goat Creek on your left.
There are a couple places where glimpses of this tall waterfall can be seen.
