If you were driving along Highway 203 to or from Monroe, you will undoubtedly see the vast farmlands along the shores of the Snoqualmie and Skykomish Rivers, totally oblivious that there are waterfalls around. Youngs Creek Falls seems quite out of place, until you actually reach the creek. It seems like the road and valley should be somewhere in lowlands eastern Washington. During low water periods, the falls may become tiered. This is the only waterfall that I know of that loses a tier in high water. It is possible, however, that when I saw the falls as tiered, there was a large root wad at the falls' base, causing the appearance of a second tier.
- Youngs Creek Falls is the Adopted name of this waterfall.
Drive south of Monroe along Highway 203 just past the bridge over the Skykomish River, and turn left onto Ben Howard Road. Drive along this route for about 7 miles to the signed Cedar Ponds Road. Drive for about 1 mile to where the pavement ends, and in another .25 mile, the road forks. Stay right and continue for another 1.5 miles to the bridge across Youngs Creek. There are large turnouts uphill of the bridge on either side of the creek. There are 2 main paths to the gorge. The first, before the bridge at a gravel pit, drops down to the gorge for views down and upstream into the crack, but yields no good views of the falls. The second, on the far side of the bridge, descends to almost creek level, then juts uphill a few feet and follows the creek to a large log spanning the chasm, from which you get a noisy vista of the thunderous falls.
