A must- see for anyone traveling along the Mt. Baker Scenic Byway (also known as WA 542), Nooksack Falls divides the North Fork of the Nooksack River into three segments and sends them plunging 88 feet into a grotto- like gorge below. At the bottom, the North Fork continues on to the west but spawns Wells Creek, which heads south. One of the more dramatic waterfalls in the Pacifi c Northwest—it was even featured in the hunting scene in the movie The Deer Hunter—Nooksack Falls is well worth the short detour on a longer trip to the Mt. Baker area.
