Mt. Baker Climbing
Mt. Baker is one of the biggest and baddest peaks in the Cascades, and it's a world-class spot for ice and alpine climbing.
Destination Distance From Downtown

Time To Complete
Summer and Fall
Tip: More people attempt Mt Baker in the Spring than the Fall although it's a bit in vein. Terrible weather can lag until late June and on big snow years the road can stay snowed in until late Spring. Spring can also mean difficult traveling snow conditions unless on skis and bad Whiteout conditions. Fall has the reputation for open crevasses and this can mean it becomes a little more technical it also means easy access and better weather.
Dogs are mostly allowed but not recommended on a glacier.
NW Forest Pass required for all Parking lots.
