Ok, so it took an hour of slow driving to get to the falls (and another hour to return back to the highway), but it was worth the time. We were there in June, and the water was flowing well.

For many years logging was done with care for the forest and the land, and provided an excellent balance of nature, access and recreation opportunities. Moreover, the goal of the Forest Service now seems to be... More

Elevation of 4100' on hwy 97 from Leavenworth to Cle Elum. Watch the summit as it can get icy. Pretty views from beginning to end. Two lanes in most spots.
