South Skagit Highway

The South Skagit Highway begins just south of Sedro-Woolley and runs, as the name seems to suggest, along the south side of the mighty Skagit River.  The highway eventually runs into Concrete-Sauk Valley Road, passing through the community of Day Creek in the process.  Day Creek itself runs through an impressive canyon a few miles upstream from the highway and there are several small waterfalls located in the canyon.  They're difficult to view, and probably not worth the effort, but they are there for the hearty to find.  With the exception of Marietta Falls and Gilligan Creek Falls, the waterfalls along the South Skagit Highway are very difficult to get to and, in general, not very impressive.  This is an area that is best left to loggers and the truly hard-core waterfall hunters.  There are probably many more waterfalls along the highway and we are hoping to bag several of these this winter so watch for updates in the not too distant future.
