Description:

Most snowshoe trails can be found off the Mt Baker Highway (State Route 542), about a one-hour drive from Bellingham. These trails offer scenic views, beautiful waterfalls, majestic old-growth forest, unique geologic formations, mountain peaks and wild river valleys. Plentiful feet of snow can be found throughout the Mt Baker Snoqualmie National Forest every winter. Fresh snow falls regularly on trails near and on Mt Baker from November-April.

Additional Notes/Directions:

From the Shuksan Picnic Area head up the Hannegan Pass Road and enjoy views of the North Fork Nooksack River, Mt. Shuksan and adjacent forested hillsides. Travel for 1.4 miles before reaching a junction with Forest Service road 34. Head east along this tree-lined route for a mile beyond the junction to its terminus at Ruth Creek (Nooksack Cirque Trailhead).
