Tyler Falls occurs on a very small stream around Lake Louise.   While small, the falls are exceptionally scenic.  They start with a 30' segmented plunge, immediately follow by a 10' horsetail.  The middle section runs through a little slot before dropping over a perfectly shaped fan.  Finally the creek dumps over a finally drop around 12' tall and then runs down under the road.  Seeing the upper sections of the falls requires a little scrambling around but nothing too difficult.  I've named this one after John Tyler, our 10th president.
DIRECTIONS - Take the Alger exit from I-5 between Burlington and Bellingham.  Head east along Cain Lake Road through Alger and go straight at the intersection with Old Highway 99.  After a few miles the road will intersect with Lake Whatcom Road.  Turn left/straight.  Tyler Falls are found about a mile north of here and can be seen through the trees on the left side of the road at a long corner.  It's harder to spot the falls coming from the north.
