Youngs Creek Falls is a set of two punchbowl falls that carve a really cool little gorge along the way.  The best viewing area is from a piece of plywood nailed between two huge logs that sit over the creek.  When it's wet (like it was on our visit), this "viewing platform" is very slippery.  Trails lead along both sides of the bridge and eventually end at the bottom of the little gorge with a view upstream at some of the smaller drops downstream.

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, turn right onto Cedar Ponds Road.   Take the right hand fork after the road turns to gravel.  In about 1.5 miles, you'll cross over Youngs Creek on a bridge.  The falls are just downstream.
