An out and back trail that is right along the river. Great views of the water and excellent birding as well. Whitewater Kayaks also put in here as there is a check in station for them at the trailhead. Remember your Forest Pass. During the summer and on weekends this one can get pretty busy since it is right off the road and near a large camp ground.

A little slippery in spots but beautiful along the river. Some trees across trail near the end but we managed to climb over/around.

Pretty along the river, but then the trail just ends in a weird spot. Little odd.

I know I am out of shape and was hoping this would be a good starter hike as was mentioned but holy cow it had some rough patches. had my 6 1/2 year old grandson with us and there were a few spots that were a bit sketchy for him. It was a beautiful hike and worth the effort, especially along the river. There were a few trees down but the path went around them easily enough. Be prepared for a couple of what I called goat trails, narrow climbs. Some overgrown areas but not impassable. Enjoy!

Excellent hike with little ones. Fun terrain with spots along the river to soak.

This a beautiful hike through a lush green forest along the Nooksack River. The trail is very beautifully maintained. A perfect hike for those new to hiking, very kid, and dog friendly. Very little elevation, but just enough to give you a good cardio work out with all of the ups and downs. A few spots are extremely muddy, but still easy to get through. Great views of the river along the way. We didn't hike the last mile since it brought you back out onto the main hwy. Our total r/t was 3.7 miles. Then we ventured down to Boyd Creek trail, only 1/4 mile r/t off of Glacier Creek Rd.

Great trail to start your summer stay in Mt. Baker. Drove up from Seattle in the afternoon did this nice day hike and than had a great meal at Milano's. Perfection in the PNW!

Very easy walk along the river! Great for a day you aren't looking for too much incline!
