Creek Falls is one of the most unique, and extremely beautiful waterfalls in
NW Washington. While most waterfalls drop over a rocky wall, Falls
Creek just runs diagonally right through the middle of the rock instead.
The crack in the rock seems to run further underwater because the water
comes to the surface several yards downstream from the bottom of the falls.
Speaking of that pool, it's probably at least 30' deep and an amazing
Drive south from Darrington along the Mt. Loop Highway and turn right onto
FR 2080. Drive along the road for 3.5 miles, taking a left at the Y in
the road. Park in the big turnout on the left side of the road and
find the trail marked by a pink ribbon on a little tree. The trail
leads steeply to the falls in about a quarter of a mile. To see the
falls you must ford the creek downstream from the falls.
