Highwood Lake

Highwood Lake (Whatcom County) is an alpine lake located on the Mt. Baker Hwy just before Picture Lake and the Heather Meadows Lodge in the Mt. Baker ski area. The Firs Chalet, a large A-Frame cabin, sits directly across the road from the lake. Highwood Lake, and the nearby Picture Lake, deliver remarkable views of the surrounding mountains, including the spectacular Mt. Shuksan.
