The falls are beautiful and worth a stop on your way up to Mt. Baker. I'm not sure that I'd make it my single destination as there isn't any real hiking around the falls. Essentially you get out, do a short walk to the falls and turn around. They are beautiful though!

On your way to Mt Baker in Northwest Washington is a dirt road pull off and after about a half mile a bridge and a parking area. If you can navigate uneven ground, go across the road and work your way to the fall noise that you are hearing. After your short hike you will be rewarded with a great... More

This is one of the shortest hikes on the route to Heather Meadows and deserves a stop. Had a little trouble knowing if we were at the right place, so make sure you have a decent map to help you get there. We stopped at the information place in Glacier and the person there was very helpful.

In late May, there was a lot of water (glacial melt) flowing over the falls. Later, in September, the flow was only a fraction of what is was in late May. Parking at the falls is limited and a bit tricky to navigate. Definitely worth stopping to see if you are on traveling on the road toward Mount Baker.

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...
