The 1,700,000-acre Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest covers the western slopes of the Washington's Cascade Mountains from the Canadian border to the northern boundary of Mount Rainier National Park.
Some of the state's most primitive and rugged regions are within the forest. Mount Baker, at 10,778 feet, dominates the northern section and is the site of Sherman Crater's thermal activity, which began in 1975. The Mount Baker Wilderness surrounds the volcano. Glacier Peak, at 10,568 feet, towers over the central part of the forest; the Glacier Peak Wilderness lies between Stevens Pass and North Cascades National Park.
In the high country between Snoqualmie Pass and Stevens Pass is Alpine Lakes Wilderness.
