Mosquito Lake Road is a scenic, rural road between Acme and Welcome. The drive is approachable in either direction.
The drive begins in Acme which is reached from WA-9. If you are coming from Sedro Woolley and the North Cascades Highway, head north on WA-9. If you are coming from Mount Baker Highway, head South on WA-9 just after Deming.
The drive is a slow, rural road with farms and ranches. This road used to be a short cut to Mount Baker.
Six miles into the drive, you will pass Jorgenson Lake and Mosquito Lake (W1) on your left. A few miles after, you will reach the single lane Middle Fork Nooksack River Bridge (B1), a steal truss bridge from the 1950s that is on the National List of Historical Sites.
The drive ends in Welcome where it joins onto the Mount Baker Highway (WA-542). On the way home, consider stopping in Bellingham or heading back to WA-9 and heading south to either North Cascades Highway or the Mountain Loop Highway.
