DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to Middle Beaverdale Falls. The lower falls occurs just below the old roadbed. From the end of the road, scramble down the hillside through the woods for about 80 vertical feet and then cut over to the creek below the falls.

Illinois Creek drains a small basin on the southern side of the North Fork Snoqualmie Valley. As the creek drops from the basin to the North Fork, it drops over three impressive waterfalls in a short distance. These three waterfalls have been named after the old Beaverdale Mine which is located above the basin.

Lower Beaverdale Falls occurs just downstream from the old road and is pretty easy to access once you get there. The falls is similar to the middle falls on the creek in that it is a powerful, cascading drop that spreads out across a wide berth. Just downstream from the splash pool is a nice little 3' tall drop that makes a great foreground for pictures if you have a wide enough lens on your camera. It certainly wouldn't be a stretch to consider the middle and lower falls along this creek as one waterfall, but I elected to split them up because of a noticeable flat step between the two.
