Mt. Baker Hill Climb

Mt. Baker Hill Climb

September 09 2018
Mt. Baker Highway, Washington, USA

Ascend 4,098 feet from Chair 9 in Glacier to Artist’s Point (5,140 feet elevation) in approximately 24 miles. The Mt. Baker Highway (SR542) is one of the most scenic paved roads in the world and rarely is the highway closed to motorized vehicles from Glacier to Artist Point.

With steep elevation and several switchbacks, this ride is not for the faint of heart but the views are stunning. The Mt. Baker Hill Climb began in 2003 (previously hosted by another organization) and was last run in 2013. Whatcom Events has been asked over the years to bring this iconic event back to the community and after preliminary planning, we are ready. We hope you will join us this fall in bringing this epic ride back to Whatcom County.
