From Burlington (exit 230 on I-5), head east on the North Cascades Highway (SR-20) for 23 miles, turning left 0.4 miles after milepost 82 onto Baker Lake Road.
Continue 12.3 miles on Baker Lake Road. The turnoff onto FR 12 is tricky: FR 12 is marked by a sign at the bridge before the intersection with the Forest Road. Turn left on the unmarked FR 12, continuing 3.7 miles to the intersection with
FR 13. Turn right onto FR 13, and proceed 5.3 miles to the trail head parking area. There is parking for about 40 cars. A privy is available.
The SnoPark is located before the trail head, look for the signs.
Parking is limited at the trail head (to only 40 vehicles). Because of the limited parking and in an effort to be courteous to those not hiking with our group, we encourage you to car pool.
If car pooling is not an option, we encourage you to park at the SnoPark on the left, right after you turn onto FR13, and car pool from there.
Parking passes will be available for each vehicle. Be sure to indicate if you need a parking pass for the day of the event on the registration page. Your NW Forest Pass works, so if you have one of those, you will not need a pass from us!
At this time, there is no shuttle available from the SnoPark to the trailhead.
