Beautiful area, not a lot of direction on where to go or not to go as far as the road to the falls. Sobering to read about how many people have died looking at the falls, by going off path. STAY on the marked path!

A great stop on your way to Mt. Baker or just a nice spot for a picnic lunch. Good views of the falls from the top but heed warning signs. The rocks can be slippery when wet.

My husband and I stopped at the Nooksack Falls on our way to Mt Baker, and we are glad we did. There are two side-by-side falls, and the park is a peaceful stop on a long stretch of road. Next time we will bring a picnic lunch!

Very beautiful location. Short walk from the parking lot to a great view of the falls. Make sure you wear good shoes for walking, as the ground can be a little unstable in places.

On our drive to Mt Baker we stopped to view this powerful waterfall, which can be fully seen if you go to end of wired viewing area. More like Glacier than Bellingham.

It's a drive up the Mount Baker Hwy., but worth the effort. The Falls offer a free trip to see an amazing waterfall and wild river. Do not climb over the fencing for a better view. Note the plaque commemorating the lives lost at these Falls just in the past 20 or so years. Just enjoy the beauty with your... More

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.
