“Impressive falls but nowhere to go”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

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

“Amazing waterfall”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

They had predicted there were going to be very strong winds and a storm coming to higher elevations, so I was a bit concerned at first about visiting Nooksack Falls. I didn't have any difficulty getting to it, though. The storms didn't seem to affect this elevation as much, and it mostly rained. The falls are really beautiful, and it was pretty isolated. There was only one other car there the whole time.

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.
