Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest Trailheads, Campgrounds, and Day-use Areas Closed

To align with state and local stay home to save lives measures, trailheads, campgrounds, and day-use areas within the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest will be temporarily closed. These closures are based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to help slow the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus.

“We are following CDC and departmental guidelines regarding COVID-19, are closely monitoring the situation and will evaluate potential impacts to the Forest and respond as needed,” said Jamie Kingsbury, Forest Supervisor with the Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest. 

The closure order is in effect through September 30 unless rescinded earlier.

The latest updates and information will be shared online at https://www.fs.usda.gov/mbs/. Forest Service offices are currently providing virtual services and staff are available to answer questions by phone or email.

Day use areas include trailheads, visitor centers, OHV staging areas, viewpoints, boat launches, interpretive sites, and picnic areas.


        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
