Depot Creek Falls facts for kids
|Location||Whatcom County, Washington, U.S.|
|Total height||967 feet (295 m)|
|Total width||125 feet (38 m)|
|Number of drops||1|
The falls occur where Depot Creek drops over a headwall. The creek starts off by plunging 200 feet (61 m). After that is a long slide of 767 feet (234 m) to the bottom of the valley. Spray at the falls' base is immense. The average volume of the falls is 300-500 cubic feet per second of water, which flows over a nearly 1,000-foot (300 m) high cliff as a 125-foot (38 m)-wide river.
Reaching the falls is challenging. One has to drive up Depot Creek FSR from the Canadian side, which is in poor condition, before hiking about 8 miles (13 km) to the falls. This is one reason the falls are seldom visited.
