WELCOME VALLEY FALLS

RATING - 5.6

VR - .9 (Tiny)               HR - 4                  SR - 2/20

TYPE - Horsetail

HEIGHT - 70'

WIDTH - 10'

TYPE OF APPROACH - Roadside

DIFFICULTY - Very Easy

LOCATION - Mosquito Lake Road Area

This very small volume creek drops into the South Fork Falls via this pretty waterfall.  The falls can be easily seen from Mosquito Lake Road.  It is also possible (although I haven't figured out how yet) to get up close to this waterfall.  This would probably only be worth the trouble during the peak volume of the winter and early spring.
DIRECTIONS - From Mt. Baker Highway, turn south onto Mosquito Lake Road.  About a mile after crossing the North Fork, you will drive through the community of Welcome Valley.  At the sharp corner (you'll have to slow down as you approach), look east to see the falls above the valley.
