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.
The Forest Service is currently gathering public input on potential future projects along the North Fork Stillaguamish corridor of the Mt. Baker- Snoqualmie Forest. Public feedback provided during the scoping period will help the U.S. Forest Service inform their planning process.
To help ensure that stake holders, local tribes, and the public are sufficiently informed on the North Fork Stillaguamish Landscape Project, the U.S. Forest Service held a virtual public meeting on May 18, 2022 via Zoom.

The health and safety of visitors as well as Forest Service employees and volunteers is paramount during the COVID-19 pandemic. To support local public health and safety measures, virtual services are being offered en lieu of standard face-to-face operations.
