Rather than rushing across Stevens Pass, try a side trip to Deception Falls. This short, family-centric walk to some gorgeous waterfalls also provides an abundance of picnic places, a covered picnic area at the parking lot, and several vault toilets—all of which make Deception Falls a nice place for stopping while on a long drive. The waterfalls aren’t too shabby either! From the picnic area, drop down a paved trail for 100 feet to the first of two signed junctions. Go straight ahead, toward the lower falls. For the loop trail, turn left (northwest). In another 100 feet continue straight at a second signed trail junction, toward the upper falls. Turning left (north) is a shortcut to the lower falls and loop trail.
