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

“Dramatic falls!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

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!

“What a Surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

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! They are in a gorgeous setting, and even though it was late August (which often reduces falls to a trickle), the river and the falls were gushing! The river rapids suddenly plunge over a cliff into a two part falls that is quite spectacular. And the area is absolutely free, so definitely worth the brief side trip. Had we had more time, it would have been a great place for a hike.

“Beautiful Falls”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

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 falls, however picturesque, are mostly hard to see. There is a fenced area that gives you a partial view, but this is at best, a 10 min stop. The drive in from the highway is a hard dirt road with plenty of potholes, I would not recommend a low riding car. It is a single lane road, so be prepared to stop and dance with oncoming traffic. Parking is limited.

“Amazing falls and walking trails near Mt. Baker”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

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 leading through the woods if you want to do a little additional hiking before heading towards the Mt. Baker summit.
