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...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...More

Nice little side trip on the way up to mt baker. The water falls were beautiful. Lots of water flowing there!! Easy walk to and from the falls.

When driving the Mt. Baker Highway, definitely stop off and see the Nooksack Falls! They are huge! The viewing area is fenced off for safety, but you still get pretty close to the edge of the cliffs. It's really pretty!

Not crowded and really beautiful spot to take a break. Please remember to pack out your trash is you have a picnic - keep our local environment clean for everyone to enjoy. We stop here all the time and it's great.

Took a small detour outside of Bellingham to this little gem in the mountains. The views were breathtaking for this city girl. Well worth the 45 minute drive.

We stopped here along the way to the summit of Mount Baker and thought this was well worth the side trip - not far off the main road and a beautiful and powerful waterfall.

A very short walk, less than 100m from the parking lot. The trail is short but has a lot of up-and-down so if you have mobility issues you may not want to try it. However, the road continues onto a bridge where you can look...More
