WALLACE CREEK FALLS
|DIRECTIONS - Head east on the Mt. Baker Highway and turn south onto Mosquito Lake Road. Soon you will drive through the community of Happy Valley. Just after leaving that area, turn left onto Middle Fork Road. Around 11 miles down the road you will cross over Wallace Creek (3rd concrete bridge on the road). The falls can be seen from the bridge, but a difficult bushwhack will be required to get a good view.|

|NEARBY WATERFALLS - Falls Creek Falls||Wallace Creek is a large creek in the Middle Fork Nooksack Valley. From the bridge over the creek, one can see the bottom tier of the falls and part of the next tier up. With a ton of effort I was able to get closer to the falls for some nice pictures. While not the biggest falls in the world (or even on this creek judging from satelite pictures) this is still a nice powerful waterfall.|
