Waterfall lovers not scared of backcountry travel will appreciate the short but challenging hike to Heliotrope Falls, a rushing ribbon of water cutting into its own alpine chasm below snowy Heliotrope Ridge on the flanks of Mt. Baker in northwest Washington State. Two other waterfalls on the way up and a view of an icy blue-and-white receding glacier underneath Mt. Baker’s imposing peak are a few of the other attractions of the otherworldly trek to Heliotrope Falls.
