Granite Falls (Fish Ladder) Trail

10630 Mountain Loop Hwy, Granite Falls, WA 98252

happyly approved

Short accessible trail along side a scenic waterfall

If you’re looking for a quick, yet scenic walk this is a great stop outside of Seattle. The drive itself is beautiful, and parking is simply a pull out on the side of the road. Pay attention to GPS on your way or it will be easily missed. The scenery begins immediately as you descend stairs to the falls. Take the time to walk up towards the top of the falls to see the beautiful granite carved by forever falling water. In certain seasons you might even see Salmon, which you can learn about on the signs posted at the top lookout. The rest of the trail you’ll walk through berry bushes and see birds. This portion is fairly flat, and easy for any age or capability. The only thing is to consider stars at the beginning, making it not stroller or wheelchair friendly.
