DIRECTIONS - Turn off Baker Lake Road onto FR 12 towards Schreibers Meadows. In about 1.5 miles the road goes over Sulphur Creek (first creek with a bridge). Park at the bridge and scramble into the woods on the right (north) side of the creek. The falls are about 1/3 of a mile downstream and the woods are mostly open the whole way.

The lower stretch of Sulphur Creek is among the most beautiful stretches of creek in the Mt. Baker area. The entire area is lined with amazing moss covered rocks. In addition to the mossy rocks, the creek contains three recognizable waterfalls, this one being the prettiest of the group. Sulphur Creek splits around a large boulder and plunges about 15' into a nice deep pool before dropping immediately another 6' in a gorgeous block shaped falls. Just downstream the creek slides another 10' into yet another pool. Below this the creek runs through a deeper part of the canyon and over more cascades before dropping over the creek's major waterfall, Sulphur Creek Falls.
