This small waterfall is well hidden along the lower part of the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River road, but evidence points to the fact that several people know about it, despite it's well hidden locale. The falls occur where an unnamed creek, draining the southeast side of Green Mountain, drops down a narrow gorge carved out of laterally fractured bedrock. The falls are not very impressive at all in the summer, but I imagine that they become quite loud in the winter and early springs when the creek is at it's peak flow. Looking at the topographic maps after I visited the falls, it's very likely that there are more falls just upstream, possibly bigger falls, however I don't know how easy they may be to reach.
- Green Mountain Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
I believe this stream is named, but I can't find a reference to it just yet. Expect the name to change when I do. A Waterfall Lovers Guide to the Pacific Northwest cites this as Green Mountain Falls in the appendix.
This waterfall is located along the Middle Fork Snoqualmie River road, near North Bend. From North Bend, follow Interstate 90 east to Exit 34 (Edgewick Road), and turn left. Proceed for about 1/4 mile to Middle Fork Road and turn right. Proceed just over 6.6 miles to where the unnamed creek crosses under the road. It's not marked, so you'll have to be watching your odometer. Park anywhere you can, space is limited, and find a path leading straight down to the creek. From here, you have to walk right up the creek for about 300 feet, then, once you see the mouth of the small gorge, find a small path which climbs above a small waterfall at it's mouth, then drops back to the creek at the base of the falls. It's pretty easy to get to the falls, but only if you're willing to get wet.
