DIRECTIONS - Take HWY 20 east from the tiny town of Newhalem. In a few miles, the road will cross Gorge Lake. After crossing the bridge, look for a small pullout on the left and park. The falls are a couple hundred feet into the woods.

This small waterfall is the lowest in a series of waterfalls on Pyramid Creek. The waterfall consists of two tiers: a 15' tall plunge and then a cool 25' tall sliding drop into a beautiful pool

The falls lie just a couple hundred feet from Highway 20 and are relatively easy to get a view of. If you want a clear view, you will need to make your way down to the creek and then wade upstream to the bottom. It was a little too cold for that on my trip, but I'll do it next time.
