Hiking White Salmon Road Snowshoe

Snowshoe or cross-country ski on this road just below the Mount Baker Ski Area. This route is White Salmon Road, and is not related to Salmon Ridge or White Salmon Creek. Those are separate areas, slightly more advanced, and require a Sno-Park permit at the lot.

To explore White Salmon Road, simply walk up Forest Service Road 3075. As you hike, you'll crest the ridgeline, and then head down to the end of the road. Be aware of other trail users, as this is a national forest road.

Views from the road include Mount Shuksan and many of the snow-covered surrounding hills.

Getting There

From Bellingham, drive Highway 542 to Glacier. Continue through Glacier on Rte. 542, and at the hairpin turn just past Razor Hone Creek between mile markers 51 and 52, see the sign for White Salmon Road (NF 3075). There is typically room for about a dozen cars in the plowed portion of White Salmon Road, and additional parking in the surrounding plowed pullouts on Rte. 542.
