DIRECTIONS - Baker Lake Road crosses Sulphur Creek just before the turn-off to the Kulshan Campground and Upper Baker Dam. Right after crossing the creek, park at the gated road on the left side of the road. Walk up the road for maybe 1/2 a mile and then head through the woods towards the creek. It's another 1/2 a mile to the falls, but getting a clear view is tricky.

This stretch of Sulphur Creek is essentially one waterfall after the next. Immediately after Middle Sulphur Creek Falls, the creek continues to slide and cascade through a tight canyon until it bursts out and drops over this complex waterfall. The main section of the falls is a 98' tall back-to-back-to-back drop over an interesting moss-covered cliff. I included this triple drop, as well as the next immediate drop in the height, but the creek actually continues to cascade down a long bedrock slide for another 40' or so after that. As pretty as this waterfall is, it's VERY difficult to get a clear view without putting yourself at risk.
