McCoy Creek Falls is an extremely pretty waterfall.  It begins with a block-shaped drop about 8-10' tall and around 40' wide.  Below this it drops over a gorgeous fan shaped drop around 45' tall.   There are a few smaller drops below this as well.  Unfortunately, the area around the falls has been used as a garbage dump.  A short distance upstream from the falls is a dam that creates a little pond.  The dam could probably be used to cross the creek.  This would at least give you a better photo op of the upper tier.

DIRECTIONS - Drive South out of Monroe along HWY 203.  Just after the bridge over the Skykomish, turn left onto Ben Howard Road.  In about 7 miles, you will pass Cedar Ponds Road.   About a mile after this you should see a gated logging road heading uphill to the left.  Park here and walk a half a mile up the road to where the falls can be heard on the left side of the road.  Getting a clear view is pretty much impossible but the trees around the falls are so mossy they really don't hurt pictures much.  Keep walking down the road another 50' or so and then head into the woods to see the upper tier of the falls.
