Mt. Baker Hill Climb

Mt. Baker Hill Climb

September 08 2019
Glacier, 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. Experience the agony and the ecstacy!
