If you are heading up to Mt. Baker, be sure to stop at the Falls on the way up, as the turn is on the right and a bit hard with trafic and angle coming back. It's a wonderful falls, but be careful to stay withing the fenced area, as several have slipped in. Free.

It is a short drive from the Mt Baker Scenic Route to see Nooksack Falls. The walking path is a little tricky through gnarly tree roots and steep up and downs. The vantage point views from about the halfway mark of the falls. You can barely see it fall into the ravine. Look for a rainbow affect on the rock... More

Picture a ravine with a fall that goes, goes down 80+ feet surrounded by majectic trees. The walk from the parking lot is short but tricky, but the overlook views are awesome.

The short access road to the falls is right off Mt. Baker Hwy, and it's an easy walk to the observation point. It's true that there is not much else to do here but gaze at the falls, but what a sight; it is truly mesmerizing! There is a good hiking trail right along the Nooksack at Horseshoe Bend, right...

Well worth a quick stop on the way to Artisan Point. The dirt road is a bit pocked, but going slow alleviates the bumps. The falls are essentially 50 yards from where you park. The path is a bit tricky with rocks and tree roots, but again like the road, slow and steady wins the race. The falls--of course--are gorgeous...

Area is very beautiful, but the vantage point of the unmarked lookout for the falls does not lend a full view of the falls. It is worth the drive on the gravel road.

Turns out the pictures I'd seen before going to Nooksack Falls were taken by professional photographers who probably risked their lives to take the picture. They even list on the board the names of people who have lost their lives trying to go beyond the barriers! The good news is it is pretty even from the fenced area and is... More

Easy access to a free sight seeing place with free parking is hard to find. Well worth a 1/2 hour or more stop when in the area. We stop almost ever time we past this local waterfall.

We stopped at this spot and saw these impressive falls with river converging at mid point. The falls are fenced off so the view is a bit limited and disappointingly there is not a walking track attached to them so we had to find another which we did at Horse tail bend
