Day Creek is the largest creek in the Lower Skagit Valley and could almost be called a river. It drains an enormous area south of the Skagit and as a result has a very high volume of water. Around 4 miles upstream from the South Skagit Highway, Day Creek dumps over a series of 6 drops, each around 10' tall before dumping into a deep pool at the bottom. My picture below only shows the bottom couple of drops and doesn't show them very well at that. The falls are fairly close to the logging road but getting there is EXTREMELY difficult. I don't recommend anyone visit unless you love a good challenge
|DIRECTIONS - Follow
the directions to Madison Falls. From the top of
Madison, work your way upstream on Day Creek for around 1/2 a mile (it's not easy).
Eventually, you should be able to work your way down to Day Creek itself just below the
Cascades (3 large logs lay across the falls so that should help you find them).
Located just downstream from the Cascades, a small stream dumps into Day Creek in a little
waterfall of its own. A short distance upstream, Fall Creek also drops along a small
waterfall. These wouldn't be worth the trouble normally, but if you're gonna fight
your way into the Cascades you might as well check these out as well.
