Hiking Falls Creek

This trail is unmaintained and has no trailhead of its own, but rather is reached by using the Ingalls Creek trail and the rarely used or maintained Etienne Creek trail.

As a stock trail, horse feed can be found in the upper basin, but there is no bridge across Ingalls Creek, requiring a ford, which can be dangerous in high water.

WTA Pro Tip: Save a copy of our directions before you leave! App-based driving directions aren't always accurate and data connections may be unreliable as you drive to the trailhead.

Getting There

From Cle Elum take Highway 970 east for 7 miles to Highway 97. Go north topping Blewett Pass. At milepost 178, turn left onto Ingalls Creek Road. Cross Peshastin Creek, bear left. The trailhead is at the road's end.

From Leavenworth, take Highway 2 east for 4 miles, then take a right onto Highway 97S and proceed for 7 miles before taking a right onto Ingalls Creek Road. Cross Peshastin Creek and bear left. The trailhead is at the road's end.

Falls Creek "trailhead" can be found five and a half miles up the Ingalls Creek trail, across the creek. Use caution, since water can run high and fast here late into the season.
