Welcome to the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest
Located on the west side of the Cascades between the Canadian border and Mt. Rainier National Park, you will find glacier-covered peaks, spectacular mountain meadows and old-growth forests rich in history and outdoor opportunities.
Wilderness is the wildest of the wild. It has no roads, no development. A great trip involves planning and preparation to be safe and enjoyable.
Mountain biking in bear and cougar country carries additional risk that you need to be aware of. Travelling at high speed increases the risk of a surprise encounter with wildlife.
Be Bear Aware!
It’s not uncommon for us to see the occasional problem bear within the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. Help us ensure your safety and the bear's safety by following these tips!
