Mount Baker/Methow Valley Region

You wouldn’t think having weather close the roads, in this case the North Cascades Highway, would be a blessing, but for those seeking the best places to snowmobile in this region of Washington, it is because snowmobiling up the highway offers a memorable winter joy ride.

With terrain that’s relatively easy to manage and spectacular views, you can’t help but be impressed. On the west side of the mountains, the Mount Baker National Recreation Area offers 19 miles of groomed trails; nearby, Canyon Creek and Glacier Creek areas have a combined 50 miles of groomed trails; to the east the Scatter Creek area has 63 miles of groomed trails that take you over passes and through forests; and Methow Valley provides access to around half of the 384 miles of groomed trails in the area.
