This is the second of three small waterfalls along the West Fork Miller River that can be seen from the West Fork Miller trail. The falls occur where the river pretty much drops over a massive boulder, and slams into another one on the way down. Though not really an attractive waterfall (when I observed it at least), it's close to the road, so should it be better looking, or fuller at any given time, access is relatively easy. I include this fall in the Database only because it's been recognized and named by the local kayaking community. It was raining when I visited the falls, and scrambling down to the river for a decent picture would have been prohibitively dangerous.
- Immigration Falls is the Adopted name of this waterfall.
The falls are accessed from the Miller River Road in the Alpine Lakes Wilderness. On US 2, drive 10.5 miles east of the turn off for Index, or 3 miles west of Skykomish, to the Old Cascade Highway, signed for Money Creek Campground. Drive along the Old Cascade Highway for slightly over 1 mile to the signed Miller River Road. Turn right onto the Miller River Road and proceed 3 1/2 miles to a large, unsigned parking area on the right side of the road, with jersey barriers blocking the old West Fork Miller River Road (if you cross the West Fork on a bridge, you've gone too far, you'll need to backtrack for about 1/10 of a mile). Park, hop the barriers, and follow the old road for about 2/3 of a mile to the roadside falls, which may be slightly more difficult to see when the bushes along the trail are in leaf.
