“A good stop but we missed the falls!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

We were heading east on the 20 when we stopped at the Gorge Creek Falls & Overlook. The overlooks by the bathrooms were alright but the view of the Skagit River was somewhat obscured and there was just one trickling fall to be seen. It seemed somewhat underwhelming. We did the loop trail as well that takes you from the overlooks back to the parking lot but you don't get to see much from this trail but woods. At least it wasn't overly long. It wasn't until we were driving back on the 20 towards Concrete (West) that we realized we had missed a major waterfall that you can only see from the bridge just after the rest stop if you are heading east. There is a cross walk there for you to cross and walk across the bridge to see the fall. We didn't see any placard at the location indicating there was fall here. When we come back through again we will make sure to stop and see the fall we'd missed. You are supposed to have a national park pass to stop at this sight. There is a bathroom but they are highly used and not very nice.
