Little Wenatchee Falls
Little Wentachee Falls is a hidden gem that gains little attention, likely because of its modest rating in “A Waterfall Lovers Guide to the Pacific Northwest.” Still, don’t let its unassuming appearance deter you; Little Wenatchee Falls possesses a captivating allure that only reveals itself to those willing to venture beyond the surface. It plunges over progressively taller ledges, gracefully descending 60 feet, creating a formation stretching approximately 200 feet at the falls’ base and a mesmerizing spectacle. The most significant challenge you’ll face is reaching the base of the falls, but the effort promises to reward you.
The captivating cascades of Drury Falls stretch approximately 1,300 feet and offer an awe-inspiring sight less than a 10-minute drive from Leavenworth. The only drawback is that no discernable trail leads to this beautiful waterfall. However, if you park your car along the side of the road at one of the pull-out points, you can follow it to the show.
OK. So Snoqualmie Falls isn’t exactly near Leavenworth, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention it in our guide as it’s one of the most famous waterfalls in the nation, as over 1.5 million people visit it yearly. This 270-foot behemoth is large enough for two observation decks that are open every day. Approximately two hours away, Snoqualmie Falls is a good spot for those traveling throughout Washington or between Leavenworth and the Seattle-Tacoma area.
