DIRECTIONS - Drive south of Darrington for around 8 miles and turn right onto Falls Creek Road (FR 2080). The road is just before the crossing of the Sauk River so if you go over the Sauk you've gone too far. Drive up this road and park at the gate on the left at the Y. Follow this road until it crosses Peek A Boo Creek (first big creek) and park. Scramble upstream for about 600' to the bottom of the falls.

This waterfall is a series of small drops totaling about 50' in height. While not spectacular, this is a decent little waterfall located in a cool gorge but it is pretty difficult to get to. It appeared as though a taller tier may have been located just out of view from the base. I didn't feel like climbing around on the steep hillside in the snow so I'll check it out better on my next trip into the falls.
