My husband & I recently visited this falls while in the Pacific Northwest. We weren't quite sure what to expect, as the area is not really well marked & it is right at an electrical power plant site, but the short hike was well worth it! Several steps & bridges allow some wonderful views & mist of the falls. I... More

Took a trip here from the nearby campground on our one night in the area. I was pleasantly surprised that we all enjoyed the falls, even our 14 year old son. It is definitely worth your time if you are in the area at night. Bring a flashlight in order to read the signs.

I didn't think I'd enjoy this short little stop nearly as much as I did. It is gorgeous and peaceful. We went on Labor Day so my husband was very disappointed that the Gorge Powerhouse visitor center wasn't also open which means we'll just have to visit again! We really want to go at night. This place was so pretty... More

This is a beautiful waterfall!!! The history of the falls and gardens is interesting and the old lighting fixtures that are still there are pretty neat, too. The falls are accessed via a suspension bridge. There is an old fountain that was cool even without water in it. The gardens are small, but pretty. There are a ton of stairs... More

We went to this attraction late at night on our bus tour in August without any expectations. Crossed a suspended bridge and walked up the path. The falls are lit with colored lights that change on several levels. It was awesome! I would love to go back again and again. Just stand there and soak up the feeling.

Ladder Creek Falls is a really neat place to stop and do a short hike. There is a long suspension bridge that you have to use to cross the river to get to the falls. The bridge is great as you can stop and look for salmon in the river if the fish are there. When we stopped on the... More

About a 1/2-mile loop trail, with stairs, providing wonderful views of the waterfall plummeting into the narrow channel. From the parking area, the trail is reached by a suspension bridge, from which it is sometime possible to see salmon in the shallow water.

Ladder Creek Falls are a spectacular set of waterfalls carving smooth pathways into the rock and pounding down with such intensity they create their own cool micro climate. The falls are small, compared to some of their North Cascades neighbors, but their grotto-like location and the lush vegetation immediately around them give the place a tropical feel. The hike is...

A great and informative stop on the road. The falls are beautiful and the walk not too demanding. However, the gardens area is not currently maintained and was a let-down.
