Shortly downstream Deception Creek empties into Tye River. While flow may run dry in the late season, Deception Falls trail remains open in the Summer and Falls seasons.

  • Don't short yourself, Do the full walk around the ENTIRE trail. It is not that long, probably a mile or so at most but really nice.  more »
  • This is a great stop and stretch your legs place. Short walk to the falls. We happen to be there when the water was flowing really high. Great picture opportunity and neat little place.  more »
