The Horseshoe Bend Trail is an easy, year round 1.5 mile hike. The trail begins by descending a staircase. It winds through lush old growth forest paralleling the North Fork of the Nooksack River. The views of the river are exciting, as whitewater gushes over boulders. The trail ends in 1.5 miles at a stone bench next to small waterfall.

Directions: From Glacier, The the Mt. Baker Hwy. 542 east approximately two miles. The trailhead is located on the right hand side of the highway directly across from the Douglas Fir Campground. Persons camping at Douglas Fir can also access the trail from the campground itself.
