|LOWER CASCADE CREEK FALLS|
RATING - 26.0
Creek drains a decent sized area on the northern slopes of Mt. Baker.
About a mile upstream from Deadhorse Creek Road, the creek runs through a
deep, narrow canyon, dropping over what is essentially one long series of
waterfalls totalling over 600' in height. Many of the drops along the
way are almost impossible to see because of the narrow, twisted canyon.
I have elected to single out three specific drops as individual waterfalls
along the way because they are taller and more promenant than the rest of
the small drops. Keep in mind that viewing any of these waterfalls is
an extremely difficult and highly dangerous task, so I will not be posting
specific directions. You have been warned.
Lower Cascade Creek Falls is a gorgeous 44' tall horsetail surrounded by moss, ferns, and devils club. The canyon is very tight at this point, making it tough to get to the bottom for pictures. It may be possible to get a clear view from the east side of the creek on top of the canyon as well. Below this the creek appears to level out, although I wouldn't be shocked if there were further waterfalls downstream from here either.
