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!

We loved it. We stopped on the way to Mt Baker area for a show shoe hike. In late May, the falls and river were full force from melting snow, so it was very powerful and beautiful. My family loved it, and loved how the...More

This park can be slippery when wet and it's usually wet. The views are wonderful, from moss covered trees to the rushing waters of two streams that invited settlers and lumbermen into the area.

"Go East 542", as the locals say and enjoy the drive. The falls are beautiful and impressive to see during the Spring runoff. The last Sunday in May is the Ski to Sea from Mount Baker to Bellingham. The race is the world's first and...More
