Get Here by Ground

There are a variety of ways to get here.

Car

From Bellingham, head east along Sunset Drive which turns into SR 542 (Mt Baker Hwy). To get to Van Zandt or Acme, turn right (South) onto SR 9 (Valley Hwy) at the junction, just east of Deming. For all other communities, continue on SR 542.

Bicycle

If you’re an experienced cycler and you’re looking to get out of town for a day, the Mt Baker area makes for some spectacular riding. The route is the exact same as one would take by car: east from Bellingham along SR 542. To get to Van Zandt or Acme, turn right onto SR 9 (Valley Hwy) at the junction just east of Deming.
