This is a really great run that is up and back using the reverse route and is just over 200 miles round trip. Starting in Arlington on Hwy 9, the road north is awesome and begins a long ride through twisties and farm country. The route is a two lane road the entire way, and traffic is very slim to none through most of the route as well. You will find traffic as HWY 9 does a short jog in the town of Sedro Wooley, but you are quickly out of it again. Once on the Mt. Baker Hwy heading east...the ride gets really great! Lots of twisties through the forest along the Nooksack River and then a dramatic climb up to Mt. Baker/Mt. Shuksan. The last 5 miles include some tight hairpin switchbacks with breathtaking views all around! The road ends at Heather Meadows Visitors Center. This is one of the most pleasurable rides in Western Washington and is popular with motorcycles of all sorts. You will wear your arm out just waving at other bikes!
