Hiking Nooksack Falls

This waterfall viewing area is a short drive down a forest road from the Mount Baker Highway. After parking, head down a short trail to a rocky outcropping above the falls. The edge is fenced off, so this is as close as you'll be able to get. From here take in the view of the falls on the North Fork Nooksack River. 

This is a great stop on your way to or from another hike, or an awe inspiring introduction to hiking for young children. Due to it's easy access and majestic pay off, this short trail and viewing platform are popular.
