DIRECTIONS - This waterfall can be seen across the valley about 4 miles along the Swift Creek Trail.

This waterfall can be distantly seen from the Swift Creek Trail. The topo maps show an upper falls as well but we couldn't see it from the trail. I think it is at the elbow of this little canyon where it turns up to the left in this picture. In addition, the topos have a waterfall dropping in just below this waterfall. I believe this is the dark spot on the right hand side of the canyon that crosses behind the tree. This creek might have a little more water normally, but certainly not enough to warrant a page on the site. Chowash is a Nooksack word meaning "wife".
