Tehahko Falls
  TEHAHKO FALLS  
RATING - 26.0
Close up of Bagley Creek FallsTehahko Falls occurs a short distance downstream from Bagley Lakes.  The fairly large creek tears through a narrow, twisting canyon, dropping a total of 55' in drops of 35' and 20' in height.  The area around the canyon is extremely brushy, which makes it tough to access, but also adds a lot of green to the scene.  In addition, a smaller, likely seasonal stream joins Bagley Creek at the base of the falls via its own 44' tall fan-shaped waterfall.  Tehahko is the Nooksack Indian name for Bagley Creek so I thought it was a fitting name for the waterfall as well.

Accessing this waterfall is extremely taxing.  When I visited I came in from below, a trek that is not only horrifically difficult, but also potentially hazardous.  I suspect that it may be a little easier to get to the falls by coming down from the lakes, but that route would also be tough.  Because of the difficulty in accessing the falls, I won't be posting specific directions for this one.  It's a cool spot, but probably only of interest to people with an irrational obsession with Mt. Baker Waterfalls and I already know how to get there.
