About 2/3 of a mile above it's mouth, Lake Creek drops down a scenic, but difficult-to-access gorge, studded with small waterfalls. This waterfall appeared to be the largest, although at least two more possibly of comparable size were also in the vicinity. At this waterfall, Lake Creek drops over a few small falls, then collects into a chute and plunges powerfully into a deep pothole. About 100 yards downstream was another waterfall, this one situated at a very narrow constriction of the gorge walls, but I was not able to gain access to it. Though this waterfall is located very close to a road, it's very hard to find unless you know specifically what to look for; in this case, a sheer plunge into a modest, but narrow pool.
- Lake Creek Falls is the name of this waterfall.
Lake Creek Falls is located west of Lake Wenatchee, off of US 2. From Leavenworth or Stevens Pass, drive to the Lake Wenatchee Road (SR 207), and proceed for 16.75 miles to the end of the paved road. At this point, the road forks, turn left onto FR 65. Immediately the road crosses the Little Wenatchee River and forks again. Here, turn right onto FR 6501. Follow 6501 for 4.7 miles to another fork, this one signed for Heather Lake. Follow this road for just shy of 1/2 a mile to any of several turnouts above the gorge. Once you've found the falls, there is a vague path leading shortly to the rocks on the side of the falls, and scrambling down to the creek below the falls from this point is feasible. The rocks near the falls are smooth and slippery, even when dry, so make sure you have good traction on your shoes. I'd recommend bringing a rope as well.
