Cyclone Falls occurs along an unnamed branch of Cyclone Creek, about 2/3 of a mile upstream from Highway 410 between Greenwater and Enumclaw. The falls drop about 90 feet in three sections before merging with the main fork of the creek. The first drop, a sheer plunge of about 30 feet, is the most pronounced of the formation. Following the plunge is a sliding cascade of about 20 feet with a large boulder situated over it, obstructing the view. The creek then flows fairly level, losing about 25 feet in elevation over a stretch of 100 feet or so, then it slides and spreads out over the final fall of about 15 feet. The waterfall isn't terribly impressive, but it is a good destination in the winter (providing there isn't snow on the ground) when better waterfalls are inaccessible.
- Cyclone Falls is the Adopted name of this waterfall.
Accessing Cyclone Falls isn't easy, plan on spending anywhere from 1-2 hours for the journey out and back. From the intersection of Highway 410 and 164 in Enumclaw (at the Safeway), head east on 410 for just under 12 miles to Cyclone Creek (watch for the guardrail shortly after a sharp bend to the right) and park. About 100 feet east of the creek is an old logging road which serves as part of the route to the falls. Follow the road up the hill until it begins to parallel a clearcut. Where the clearcut first appears, start walking alongside the woods - still within earshot of Cyclone Creek. After climbing for about 100 vertical feet, cross into the woods and follow the canyon rim until the East Fork is intersected near the base of the falls. The route is relatively brush free, but long pants are advised. Total distance from the highway is a little under half a mile.
