NORTH BAKER LAKE HIKE TO NOISY CREEK
A 9 mile round trip hike along part of the Baker River and the north shore of Baker Lake.
A Whatcom County hike.
The Pacific Northwest Trail utilizes the fourteen-mile Baker Lake Trail which is on the east side of Baker Lake.
This is a lower elevation hike, beginning about 800 feet above sea level and gaining about 300 feet in elevation. It is accessible quite a few months of the year.
Data: This hike is in the Mount Baker/Snoqualmie National Forest. A Forest Service parking permit is required to park at the trailhead. SWITMO rates this as an easy to moderate hike.
Driving Instructions: Drive east of Sedro-Woolley on State Route 20. At about milepost 82.5, turn LEFT onto the Baker Lake Road. The Baker Lake Road eventually becomes Forest Road #11. Drive northerly on the Baker Lake /Forest Road #11 about 25 miles to road-end at a very large parking lot near the Baker River. Part of the Baker Lake Road is paved but the part beyond the Swift Creek bridge is gravel.
