DIRECTIONS - Drive to the Lake Anne Trailhead near the end of Mt. Baker Highway. Head down the trail and take the Swift Creek Trail at about 2.5 miles. Hike the Swift Creek Trail for about 1.5 miles, keeping your eyes open to the north. You should see the falls tumbling down below Huntoon Point.

The Lake Anne Trail drops quickly from the parking lot and then enters a pretty meadow with a nice creek. A short distance downstream from the trail crossing the creek, it drops over this waterfall. The stream is pretty small so the falls are only moderately impressive from across the valley. It is also possible to follow the creek down from the meadows to the falls. From the west side, it was almost impossible to get a view of the falls. From the east side I got a decent view of the top part, but couldn't figure out how to see the main drop. Not a huge loss either way since this is not a very impressive waterfall.
