Mount Baker National Recreation Area is a United States National Recreation Area located in northern Washington about 15 miles (24 km) south of the Canada–US border within the Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.
The recreation area was established in 1984 by an act of the U.S. Congress primarily to accommodate the use of snowmobiles during the winter months on the southern slopes of Mount Baker. There are also many hiking trails in the recreation area. Mount Baker NRA is adjacent to the Mount Baker Wilderness area where snowmobiling is not permitted.
