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.

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.

It was a waterfall. Interesting to see and a nice stop to stretch. No other attraction in the immediate area

Well worth the short bumpy drive off the main road. Easy parking and short walk on an uneven trail. Other trails nearby. I did not see picnic tables but lots of rocks and stumps to sit on.

Free parking nearby. Nice views and loads of trails for walking or jogging nearby, Need own transport to get there from town, but worth a visit.

This nearby falls has meandering paths and a lovely bridge that makes for good pictures and a calming feeling. It is worth the short drive to spend a leisurely time enjoying the rush of water and the meeting of forest scenery with hiking.

If you are on the Mt. Baker Highway for a scenic drive, you owe it to yourself to take the short drive off the highway to see the falls, the biggest on the Nooksack River.
