Boston Creek is the largest volume creek at the end of Cascade River Road. As the creek drops down from the Boston Basin, the creek drops over a seemingly never-ending series of waterfalls. Lower Boston Creek Falls is the set of cascades located immediately upstream from the road. The falls stand a total of 113' in height, with the main section standing 71' tall. From the road they do not seem nearly that tall, but this is due to some massive foreshortening and I think the width of the rock face is deceiving as well. Glimpses of the main waterfall on Boston Creek can be had from certain locations along the road as well.
|DIRECTIONS - Drive east on Highway 20 from Sedro-Woolley to the town of Marblemount. When the road turns to the left, head straight across the bridge over the Skagit River onto Cascade River Road. The road crosses over Boston Creek at about 21 3/4 miles. The falls can be seen from here.|
