Working with local communities and organizations, we are improving recreation areas and enhancing recreational experiences for all people along the Mountain Loop Highway on this beautiful National Forest.
The beautiful Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest spans 1.7 million acres on the western slopes of the Cascade Range in Washington and includes glacier-covered peaks, spectacular mountain meadows and old-growth temperate rainforests. The verdant valleys and forested mountains host an array of amazing wildlife including salmon, northern spotted owls, fishers, elk and more. Before this land became a National Forest it was home to numerous Native American tribes who hunted, fished, harvested plants and other resources to meet their subsistence, spiritual, and medicinal needs. Many federally recognized tribes still have hunting, fishing and gathering rights on the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
