Hannegan Pass Road is a good multi-use snow-play area when snow levels are low enough. The road is often groomed for cross-country skiers and is popular for snowshoers. It doesn’t gain too much elevation and is appropriate for children.
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).
