Small peaceful place to spend some time

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

My husband and I came here on 8-11-16. This place is Beautiful. it has a fence located in front of the falls, so the kids are safe to view it. It is gorgeous!!! It is free to visit this location.

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.

These falls are gorgeous rain or shine. The green pools at the top of the falls and the river at the bottom are almost as mesmerizing as the falls themselves. It is absolutely worth a trip out to Glacier just to see them (but stay and see the forest!) Note that the road to the falls off 542 is a... More

We love stopping here on the way to Mount Baker. Drive down a short and winding road to the parking lot. There's a bridge you can drive or walk on to get a good view of the Nooksack River. Walk a few yards to see the falls - just gorgeous! Bring a camera!
