The road was closed due to snow fall, so we walked down to it. The walk was fun filled with a snowball fight :) The falls is beautiful, as was the drive to and from the location! I am always humbled by nature's beauty!

It takes a while to drive in on Wa 542, but the scenery along the way is relaxing and beautiful. The Nooksack Falls are beautiful! Just an amazing amount of water!! We were surprised since the small creeks or rivers we passed didn't seem to have much water in them! WORTH THE STOP!!

You'll only see a glimpse of the falls because they are so dangerous; they are fenced off - and for very good reason. You can walk across a bridge and see some very nice rapids as they river approaches the falls, but don't make this your destination. Make this a side trip on your way to something else.

This is such a beautiful waterfall. Lush green waters, a waterfall from 88 feet high. It's roaring and loud and just gorgeous.

Nooksack Falls is a very easy waterfall to get to by car and by foot. Just a short drive on a dirt road off the Mount Baker Highway leads to a small parking lot. Near the trailhead is a sign with the history of the falls and the area. It's a very short walk down to the falls. A bit tricky doing down and rockier near the fence, but well worth the effort. The falls were spectacular especially being spring and all the snow the area got this winter. In spite of the fence, you can still get great pictures of the falls and gorge below. West of Nooksack Falls and near Glacier by the bridge is a small parking lot for the Horseshoe Bend hike. If you're looking for a very easy walk along a river, this is a great place. The Nooksack River was pretty full and made for even more of a spectacular walk. We didn't walk the whole path. Just about a mile or so until we got to the bench by the river. Nice place to sit and enjoy the power of the river. The part of the trail we took was mainly flat, but I hear it may go up more after the spot we stopped at. If you're looking for a great place to escape to and beat the heat, both Nooksack Falls and Horseshoe Bend are both great options.
