Granite Falls

(From the Archives)

This is a pretty small water fall in comparison to many others in the north-west region, cascading about 40 feet vertically and about 300 feet of run. But during high-water season, the force of the water is immense. It seemed like a miniature Rhine Falls !

The abundance of granite in the gorge where the falls are located gave its name. Subsequently, the city of Granite Falls also got its name on this falls. 
The falls is just about 1 mile north of the city of Granite Falls.

Directions :
Follow the signs for the highway out of town (mountain loop highway). After about 1 mile, there is a big sign on the left that says "Granite Falls Fishway". A path leads down to the falls.
