Cayada Creek Falls is a pretty, surprisingly significant set of cascades marking the point where its namesake creek empties directly into the Carbon River. Cayada Creek drops approximately 700 feet in a run of about a third of a mile, so it can be assumed that there are additional, potentially more significant waterfalls upstream of this set of cascades, but with the Carbon River lying between the most easily accessed views and the creek, investigating may not be possible without great effort.
- Cayada Creek Falls is the Historical name of this waterfall.
The falls were photographed, if not discovered, by Henry Sarvant in 1894, but have eluded seemingly all documentation since.
Located within the Carbon River area of Mt. Rainier National Park. Drive south from Enumclaw along Highway 410 to just past Buckley to Highway 165, marked for Carbonado, Wilkeson and Mt. Rainier. Follow this road for 16 miles to the Carbon River Entrance Station of Mt Rainier National Park where the road has been closed due to extensive washouts. Hike the now closed road for a little over 2 miles, to just beyond the end of the first major washout and the bridge spanning Falls Creek. The falls will be audible across the valley at this point. If the correct spot has been located, its a 300-foot bushwhack through the woods to the plain of the Carbon River where the falls can be seen on the opposite side of the valley. Depending on where the river has currently aligned itself, it may be possible to get as much as 2/3 of the way across the riverbed to see the falls from a closer perspective.
