Bagley Creek flows out of the Bagley Lakes and drops over a long series of 10-15' tall tiers. The area around the creek is covered with huge boulders and lots of wildflowers so it's a gorgeous locale. The falls aren't worth the effort it took to get down there, although it looked like a larger tier may have been just downhill. I'll try to get a view of the main section of this waterfall in future. It was pouring down rain on my one trip in here.
Drive up Mt. Baker Highway to the lower trailhead for the Chain Lakes Loop.
Just down from the parking lot, the trail crosses a small dam on Bagley
Creek. The falls occurs a short distance downstream from here but it
is difficult to get to, especially if you want to keep your feet dry.
