Well worth the short bumpy drive off the main road. Easy parking and short walk on an uneven trail. Other trails nearby. I did not see picnic tables but lots of rocks and stumps to sit on.

Free parking nearby. Nice views and loads of trails for walking or jogging nearby, Need own transport to get there from town, but worth a visit.

This nearby falls has meandering paths and a lovely bridge that makes for good pictures and a calming feeling. It is worth the short drive to spend a leisurely time enjoying the rush of water and the meeting of forest scenery with hiking.

Stay behind the fence, this a quite a drop. But what a view. This a quite a site for sure. The walk in is short and easy.

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.
