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..

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.

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...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.
