DIRECTIONS - Drive South out of Monroe along HWY 203. Just after the bridge over the Skykomish, turn left onto Ben Howard Road. In about 7 miles, turn right onto Cedar Ponds Road. Take the right hand fork after the road turns to gravel. In about 1.5 miles, you'll cross over Youngs Creek on a bridge. In another half mile, the road will fork again. The left fork goes over Youngs Creek again and the falls are right below the bridge.

Marckworth Falls occurs on Youngs Creek and can be easily viewed from the bridge right over the falls. While the falls themselves aren't all that great, the creek has cut some really interesting grooves into the rocks (check out the half circle in the bottom left of the falls).

It is possible to scramble down below the bridge for a better view (see below), but even from there it's probably not worth the trouble.
