This is the first of the significant waterfalls along Suiattle River Road # 26. The falls consist of a series of horsetails and cascades in three main sections, which drops a total of around 35 feet. The small unnamed stream which the falls occur along is entirely dependant on precipitation, so the falls are limited in their impressiveness, but still retain a significant photogenic quality. I haven't observed this stream running dry, but late in the summer, it certainly wouldn't be worth visiting. Unfortunately, in the past several years, the falls have become completely obscured from the road by significant growths of Alder suckers, and are almost impossible to find unless you know exactly where to look. A significant upper falls can be seen from the road high up on the hillside - access, however, looks to be extremely strenuous and isn't recommended.
- Suiattle Falls is the Adopted name of this waterfall.
Located off the Suiattle River Road, between Rockport and Darrington. Drive north from Darrington for 6 Â½ miles, or south from Rockport for 12 miles, to Suiattle River Road #26. Follow Road 26 for 2.7 miles and park where the road makes a moderately sharp turn to the right. The creek is almost impossible to see, so watch your odometer. Once you've located the creek, the falls are about 100 yards upstream. Scramble directly up the streambed for easiest access (this can usually be done staying completely dry).
