Curtis Glacier Falls is a unique waterfall that tumbles out of the Upper Curtis Glacier and falls into the Lower Curtis Glacier. From the Ptarmigan Ridge Trail, the waterfall looks like a trickle of water, but a closer view makes it look a little more impressive.
DIRECTIONS - From Artists Point at the end of Mt. Baker Highway, begin
hiking along the Ptarmigan Ridge Trail. In about 2.5 miles, look back
towards Shuksan where you will see the falls dropping between the two Curtis
Glaciers. A closer view can be had from the Lake Ann Trail.
