When you’re born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, the desire for exploration comes naturally. Living in Washington means having an abundance of hiking trails, camp sites, and road trip routes right in your backyard, and you’re doing yourself a disservice if you don’t check out some of them when you have the time.

The Mt. Baker Scenic Byway is a fun, visually stunning, and fairly short road trip route that takes you from beautiful Bellingham Bay to the base of the mountain itself. And it’s the perfect way to explore the northwest corner of the state.

Have you ever taken the time to explore the northwest corner of our state?
