Directions from Darrington: Take the Mt. Loop Hwy. along the west side of the Sauk River. Drive 19.7 miles to the Sloan Creek Road #49 and turn left. Follow this road 1 mile to the trailhead on the right.
Was a quick hike. drove right past it the first time. small temporary yellow sign. But worth the visit.
Trailhead marker in All Trails is about one mile off. It is closer to Darrington about one mile. We had to find it from looking at the map of a track. But it took us about 5 minutes to hike down to falls.
It was raging!
Trailhead is not marked. Parking space on side of road could accommodate maybe 3 vehicles. Super short easy hike with breathtaking views! Magical really!The stairs and railings I found, lend a mild sense of security, but mostly their condition elicited apprehension. I wouldn't rely on the railings for support, and some of the steps are loose. Parts of the trail were muddy.
Super easy down to the most beautiful waterfall !!!!
