Wallace Creek is a large creek in
the Middle Fork Nooksack Valley. The creek appears to harbor four waterfalls.
Middle Wallace Creek Falls occurs where Wallace Creek drops 20' in a 15' wide U shaped plunge into a gorgeous little mini-canyon. The area around the falls is choked with logs, making it less attractive than it would otherwise be. This waterfall should only be visited if you are planning to visit De Haro Falls upstream (which is not recommended). It's just not worth the trouble of visiting by itself.
DIRECTIONS - Follow the directions to
Lower Wallace Creek Falls. This waterfall is about 1/4 of a mile
upstream from there but it's very difficult to get to. The only clear
views appear to be from the west side of the creek.
