RATING - 26.0
Falls occurs a short distance downstream from Bagley Lakes. The fairly
large creek tears through a narrow, twisting canyon, dropping a total of 55'
in drops of 35' and 20' in height. The area around the canyon is
extremely brushy, which makes it tough to access, but also adds a lot of
green to the scene. In addition, a smaller, likely seasonal stream
joins Bagley Creek at the base of the falls via its own 44' tall fan-shaped
waterfall. Tehahko is the Nooksack Indian name for Bagley Creek so I
thought it was a fitting name for the waterfall as well.
Accessing this waterfall is extremely taxing. When I visited I came in from below, a trek that is not only horrifically difficult, but also potentially hazardous. I suspect that it may be a little easier to get to the falls by coming down from the lakes, but that route would also be tough. Because of the difficulty in accessing the falls, I won't be posting specific directions for this one. It's a cool spot, but probably only of interest to people with an irrational obsession with Mt. Baker Waterfalls and I already know how to get there.
