Day Trip to:
Mount Baker, a stunningly beautiful ice-clad
volcano that towers above its neighbors in the Cascade Mountain
Range, provides an easy day trip from Lummi Island. You'll find
the thirty-mile trek east from Bellingham as intriguing as your
time on the mountain itself.
Designated as a National Forest Scenic Byway, the drive to Mount
Baker offers a constantly changing panorama of both serenity and
visual excitement. Meander through the magnificent old growth
fir trees alongside
the rushing Nooksack River, or marvel at the power and excitement
of thundering Nooksack Falls.
As the road begins to rise above the trees, you will be treated
to breathtaking views of the North Cascades high country. Stop
at pristine Heather Meadows for a special picnic lunch, and take
some time to delight in the whimsical sounds of songbirds native
to the region.
Once you reach the Mount Baker ski area, a wide variety of outdoor
activities are there for you to enjoy. The mountain boasts almost
600 inches of yearly snowfall, and for skiers and snowboarders
alike, the park offers safe and expansive ski runs ranging from
novice to expert in complexity. There are steep chutes, natural
half-pipes, and eight lifts to provide an incredible day on the
slopes for visitors of any age and ability.
If you love cross-country skiing, day hiking, or even the challenge
of ice-climbing, the mountain offers miles and miles of trails
and steep terrain to discover.
Even if you would just like to relax in a cozy chair by the fire
and take in the extraordinary scenic beauty of Mount Shuksan nearby,
a day on Mount Baker will be a wonderful change of pace for everyone
