Segelsen Lake Falls

This small 10 foot waterfall is easy to see when driving the scenic forest road drive to Cumberland Pass as it is seen just before you reach Segelsen Lake.  These small falls is the drainage of the lake.  As you continue your drive you will soon come to Crescent Falls and Segelsen Ridge Falls.

To get to Segelsen Lake Falls from Darrington, drive about 5 miles west on SR 530, turn right onto Swede Heaven Rd, drive 1.5 miles, turn right on  FS Rd. #18.  You are now driving up Mt. Higgins via Segeleson Ridge.  At 12.7 miles you will pass Segelsen Lake Falls & Segelsen Lake.  A little after passing the lake, keep right at the "Y," and then at 13.4 miles you will come to Crescent Falls and little further on Segelsen Ridge Falls lacing the rock faces to the right of the road.
