Wonderful falls! Nearby Glacier Creek was filled with salmon spawning. Very informative Ranger Station nearby.

Be sure to stop and view the falls on the lovely drive to Mt. Baker. The glacial water colour takes your breath away. Quite a photo op!

We were driving towards North Cascades National Park and saw a sign for this waterfall, which I've never heard of. I love waterfalls and said to my husband that we should turn off and if it wasn't too far to the falls, take a look. What an amazing surprise! The falls were very close to the turnoff, and just beautiful!... More

These falls are just a few minutes off the highway and are quite beautiful. It is an ideal stop on your way to somewhere else, but not really worth the drive if you're coming from a distance. We drove 2 hours from south of Everett just to see the falls and perhaps hike. The trails aren't really good and the... More

We almost missed these but were so glad that we listened to the Chair 9 person who told us to stop. The Falls are very close to the parking lot and easily reachable by a simple trail. Even at the end of the summer, there was lots of water flowing and we got great pictures. There are also some trails... More

The 5 minute drive, on a gravel road, off the main highway is well worth it. The parking area is located just before the bridge that crosses over the Nooksack River. From there it is short walk downstream to the viewing area for the falls. Be careful though as the rocks can be slippery because of mist from the falls.... More

The view is pretty decent but, as safety is a huge concern here, there are chain-link fences near the edge. It is a VERY short walk from the parking area, which is less than a half mile off the main road. The falls are massive and quite breathtaking. It takes only about 5 minutes to get down to the parking... More

This is more of a drop in spot for me, I always make a stop here when taking guests to Mt Baker. But really never stay for more than about 15 minutes. Easy to find, nice view of the falls, adequete parking

This is a nice drive for a sunny day. We usually stop here on our way to Mt. Baker. It has a nice view and you can walk across the bridge and go for a hike. They have put in more protective fencing, but you still have a good view.

Found this place on the map and made a trip to see the falls. a bit of a drive from where we were staying in Mt. Vernon, but a nice drive. The falls is down a dirt road that is easy to get down. Once there small parking area, but plenty of room for about 8-10 cars. the falls is... More
