Located just half a mile off of Mount Baker Highway, Nooksack Falls is a must-see for waterfall lovers. These glacial falls plummet 88 feet in two segments down the North Fork of the Nooksack River. Though they are best viewed during winter and spring, Nooksack Falls are accessible year-round.
To reach the viewing area, simply walk across the street from the big parking lot and follow a short, signed path. Check out the interpretive sign near the parking area for some historical information. Black and white photographs depict Nooksack Falls and its hydroelectric power plant, built in 1906. The sign describes a colorful and somewhat amusing history of the plant's ownership.
You will notice signage throughout the area warning visitors of extreme danger. These should not be taken lightly. Nooksack Falls has claimed several lives over the years, many the result of daring tourists attempting to take better photos. Rocks can get very slippery here when wet. Stay behind the fence and keep an eye on children and pets.
