Updated 11-23-2015
 Formerly called Kamikaze Falls this will offer great views of the waterfalls especially given all the rainfall lately.

Always water pouring down the falls

Driving directions: From I-90, take exit 31 and go north to North Bend Way (less than mile) and turn right. Then go to Mt. Si. road and turn left (north) on SE Mt Si Road. In approximately 3.5 miles (past the Little Si and Mt Si trailheads), you will reach a small parking area on the left (directly across from 480th Ave). This is known as the school bus turnaround, and, if you are parking here on school days, park close to the gate.

Trail directions: Hike about 1 mile and turn right on an unmarked old road at waypoint  N47.29.667 W 121.42.410 at 1215 feet. Then at the 2 mile point of your hike at junction keep to right and follow new trail. At 3 miles you will find waterfalls. Total mile is 3 and 1400 foot gain.
