Above all exercise extreme caution, especially with children. The best time to visit is during spring thaw. The least interesting is the fall. These falls are spectacular in an area abounding in the spectacular. Do not go beyond the fences and do not lean onto...More

Nooksack Falls is a must stop photo op when you're headed to Mt. Baker. It is beautiful during all seasons. Be sure to wear good walking shoes. It isn't far in but there are lots of tree roots and such. Also, it gets a bit...More

Easy to locate, well marked. The falls were great. Very peaceful and beautiful. Must be able to climb and go on rough terrain. Fenced off to prevent one from falling down side of hill.. Not handicap accessible.

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...More

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...More

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