We loved it. We stopped on the way to Mt Baker area for a show shoe hike. In late May, the falls and river were full force from melting snow, so it was very powerful and beautiful. My family loved it, and loved how the two rivers converge down below the falls. Definitely take the side road and short walk to see this.

This park can be slippery when wet and it's usually wet. The views are wonderful, from moss covered trees to the rushing waters of two streams that invited settlers and lumbermen into the area.

"Go East 542", as the locals say and enjoy the drive. The falls are beautiful and impressive to see during the Spring runoff. The last Sunday in May is the Ski to Sea from Mount Baker to Bellingham. The race is the world's first and original relay race and the highway is closed to vehicles so racers are given a safe road during the relay race. Check with the WSDOT for any road closures since the weather can cause problems on the highway in the rainy season. Enjoy your drive and views! It's worth it!!

If you are in the area or perhaps choose to camp/stay somewhere around here, this is a wonderful place to visit! Great to spend a couple of hours or a day just hiking and taking in nature. We happened to see some guys nutty enough to head up with kayaks, but didn't stick around to see the results! I would recommend staying on the trails and out of the water. It gets going pretty good and I wouldn't want to see anyone hurt.

Whether you "white water" the Nooksack or just hike along the rivers edge, the Falls are a beautiful site to see. We consider the Falls the gateway to Mt Baker. Wonderful day trip.
