Worth the stop

If you are on the Mt. Baker Highway for a scenic drive, you owe it to yourself to take the short drive off the highway to see the falls, the biggest on the Nooksack River.

Great short stop to look at a very powerful fall as the North Nooksack river goes through a gorge. It is easy to reach and lovely. But be careful, several young people have died falling..

Busy area. Beautiful scenery. Parking can be tight, but okay if everyone is thoughtful. thoughtful. Not good for strollers. Can be slippery.

This is definitely stop you don't want to miss. However the hiking is rather short, so be prepared to hike further along this Trail closer towards the peak of the mountain.

Fall is just a short distance away from the parking lot. Worth stopping by on your way to Mount Baker. Trail to fall isn't wheel chair accessible.

When out of town guests visit this is always on the list of places to see. The drive along the Mt.Baker Hwy is a mini-tour of the Northwest. Park your car and walk a short distance, any season of the year, and see this beautiful, powerful set of waterfalls.

We arrived on a very hot day in Washington, but the falls area was cooler by 10 degrees than the slow road to beautiful Mt Baker area. Area is fenced because people believe warnings are for other people, not me! Beautiful and quite dynamic when you consider the Canyon the water has cut. Takes five minutes to get to falls... More

The falls are okay. It was dry when we were there so they were not too impressive and viewing through a chain-link fence is less than ideal--but people kept dying, apparently, without the fence. The kids enjoyed hiking around the moss-covered trails which was a wonderful Pacific Northwest experience. The drive from Bellingham took much longer than I anticipated--people drive... More

Beautiful falls. Very impressive. Beware of slippery rocks, and stay in back of the fencing for safety. Many people have fallen to their death here.
