Details

This is probably one of the mose beautiful State Parks around.

For those who will be driving straight to the park, the rest of us should be arriving between 9:30 and 9:45 AM.

This popular hike leads to an inpressive series of waterfalls in the Skykomish River Valley, nine which drop more than 50 feet and whose centerpiece is the 265 foot Middle Falls. The falls are not the only attraction, however as old-growth forest, a wide network of trails, and local history all coverage at this year-round park

A Discover Pass is required.You can purchase a Discover Pass at most stores including Fred Meyer and REI for $30.00 plus tax or you can get a day pass for $10.00 at the park.
