Maple Falls is a small little cascade that for some reason has a town named after it.  The area it is located in is really pretty and the trail is pretty easy so it's worth a stop on your way up the Mt. Baker Highway to other falls.  I really recommend visiting this one in autumn when the maples lining the creek have shed their leaves.

DIRECTIONS - Drive east on the Mt Baker Highway to the town of Maple Falls.  Turn left on the road for Silver Lake and immediately turn right into the parking lot behind the store.  Follow a small trail along the back fence of the maintenance yard until it reaches Maple Creek.  Continue on the trail for a short distance to the falls.
