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 short, but full of stairs. On the way is a wooden bridge to nowhere. Walk across for great views of mossy rocks and the rushing creek.
The surrounding gardens and pools are run-down and rather sad, but the stop is definitely worth if for the the falls.
