  • This trail is a short trail with some beautiful view so the river and some small falls. I didn't like that all the 'pools' are really man made cement pools. I would only do this hike if you have...

  • There isn't much to Ladder Creek Falls, you can most likely give it a skip. However, the bridge to the falls is interesting because it is right next to the Gorge Power Plant.

  • This was worth the stop. There’s a narrow suspension bridge that takes you across the river to the backside of the powerhouse. I saw a restrooms this way sign and walked down a creepy ally way that led to a set of stairs that took you to an observation window overlooking the turbines. What an excellent experience. There was a ton of information about the building and some pretty cool displays. Outside the powerhouse, there is a trail system that goes up and down the hillside with sole spectacular views of waterfalls and plant life. The trails were great, but the powerhouse was the star for me. I’m really happy we stopped and did this one. We almost passed it up.
  • What a nice surprise. So glad that we stumbled upon this beautiful fall while coming out of the Skagit Information Center area (one way). The old steam engine is also a must see especially for young kids. This needs to be advertised more for sure. The view of the dam and the narrow bridge add to the adventure.
