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

Learn history here about how in 1912' the falls were used to make electricity. This is a very steep area and the trail is short but worth seeing.

The gravel road off SR542 (Mt Baker Hwy) is in decent shape (work crew was filling holes while I was there today) and no problem for average cars to travel. The trails to the falls viewing point are ok but not wheelchair accessible and in...More

The falls are reached by a short but bumpy unpaved road. The story of the falls and surrounding area is interesting to read about. The falls themselves are reached by a very short trail from the parking area. It's a beautiful area and well worth...More

I'm not sure one should waste time heading to this waterfall. It's less than stunning. There is really only one place to see it well and any photos are thru a chain link fence. I suppose, if you're into hiking, you could take one of...More
