Even though Yellowjacket Creek Road has been permanently washed out at Veta Creek, people seem to still find things to do up here (this area seems to be popular for gathering fire wood). If you know where to look, there are several pretty waterfalls along the road, this one being the highlight. However, just because this is the best one doesn't mean it's the easiest to find. In fact, unless you're paying attention, chances are you'll blow right by this one. The falls can be seen from the road, but it's not terribly obvious, especially when the surrounding trees are in leaf. The falls themselves are gorgeous, quickly becoming a personal favorite. Galena Creek forms a virtually perfect example of a fan shaped waterfall as it splashes into a small pool. During high flow, the falls are superb, but require a little more effort to reach.
- Galena Creek Falls is the Unofficial name of this waterfall.
Located in the Tower Rock area of the Cispus River drainage, southeast of Randle. Drive south from Randle along FR 23 / SR 131. After about 10 miles, turn right on FR 28, also signed for the Cispus Learning Center. After crossing Yellowjacket Creek, about 1 mile further, keep straight along FR 28, which becomes gravel, as the pavement bends right. Follow the now gravel Road 28 for just under 3.5 miles to the signed crossing of Galena Creek. The easiest access to the falls is a shady boot path on the right side of the creek, which will lead to the logjam below the falls. Best views are had from on the logjam, and on the opposite side of the creek, which can be easily crossed on one of the fallen logs.
