Mount Baker, Washington

Scenic Highway

The upper 24 miles of Mount Baker Highway, (WA 542), from the town of Glacier to Artist Point (elev. 5.140 feet), was designated a National Forest Scenic Byway in 1989. This section of the highway winds along the North Fork Nooksack River, and at road's end, trail systems lead into the Mt. Baker Wilderness.

The entire highway, from its juncture with I-5 in Bellingham to Artist Point, has been designated a Washington State Scenic and Recreation Highway.
