What Lower Austin Creek Falls lacks in height and sheer size, it makes up for in beauty and relaxation.  The creek drops over 3 small drops totaling about 20' in height.   It is located in the Sudden Valley area right off the appropriately named Falling Water Drive.  Be sure to visit this lovely falls if you are in the area.

 

DIRECTIONS - Take the Lakeway exit off of I-5 in Bellingham and head east.  Turn right at the T near Lake Whatcom and follow the road south.  When you get to Lake Louise Road, turn right.  Very quickly, turn left at Gate 5 of Sudden Valley and then turn right immediately onto Falling Water Drive.   Park just before the bridge over Austin Creek and walk down to the water.
