waterfalls in western Washington

by | Oct 21, 2010 | Travel

After the long Wallace Falls hike, we continued down Highway 2 and did some shorter hikes (read: downhill scrambles) to several other roadside falls along Deception Creek and the Tye River. A few of these waterfalls were along a little nature trail near the Deception Falls area.

As you can see, the waterflow was good and the scenery was fantastic – moss hanging from every limb, as well as ferns and other undergrowth. All told, these waterfalls were a little over an hour from our hotel, and there are certainly more that we could hike to on future trips.

All the waterfalls we photographed on this trip (and other falls from Washington State) can be viewed in our Washington State waterfall gallery.
