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...More

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
