Mount Baker is situated on the western shore of Lake Washington with views of the mountains and the lake. Interstate 90 is situated on the north border, South Genesee Street on the south, and Martin Luther King Jr. Way on the western border. 


Much of the area is comprised of residential single-family homes. Houses in the area are often beautiful craftsman style homes on elevated terrain with well balanced and maintained yards. Ornamental shrubs, gardens, lawns, and trees make the area attractive for walking. The terrain slopes towards the lake and the area is very hilly, so when strolling with your pet, you will need to climb some steep sections to get around. This landscape can be problematic if mobility is an issue for you or your pet.


Residential and commercial areas do have sidewalks creating safe, separate pedestrians ways and you will not have to share roads with traffic which is a plus when traveling this area on foot.

Mount Baker Park is located in the neighborhood and is comprised of a wooded ravine that is contiguous with Mount Baker Boulevard, Colman Park, and the Mount Baker Bathing Beach located on the west shore of Lake Washington. The park has a variety of ornamental and natural trees as well as picnic sites, tennis courts, drinking fountains, fishing docks, and restroom amenities. Public artworks are also located in the park to enjoy. 


The Mount Baker Boulevard Greenway extends to the south. This long narrow greenway features a trail for walking and views of Mount Baker and Mount Ranier for dog walkers to take in a while strolling with their pets. 


Local canines can play at Blue Dog Pond which is a 1.6-acre off-leash dog park with, as it’s name implies, a sculpture of a blue dog and a pond. This park is located on grass-covered slopes, is fenced for your dog's protection, and has a water supply.
