“Great little hike and history lesson”
Reviewed August 13, 2014 via mobile

This is a great hike that doesn't take a lot of time, but you get to learn about how the falls generate electricity. The trail is well marked and has a lot if good viewpoints along the way.

“Beautiful Place To Visit”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Beautiful, serene location with well maintained trails and viewing bridges as well as amazing gardens all around. Ladder Falls is on the Seattle City Light Gorge Electrical Plant ground in Newhalem but it is anything but industrial. Once you cross the Skagit River on the suspension bridge the the foot of the falls, you forget the power plant and are taken in by the beauty and power of the falls and the surrounding flora. It is easy to spend hours here getting lost in the feeling of the place.

“Nice and Quaint”
Reviewed August 5, 2014

A little steep on spots and of course it is slippery so careful when holding on to the railings. The grade was nice and so was the beauty of the falls. he old light posts were still there so history is kept!!!!

“Amazing little Falls”
Reviewed January 30, 2014

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 love waterfalls & this was a very nice treat!
