Two miles up a well-graded trail through the forest and you come over the edge of a meadow where the sudden view of Mount Baker in all its glory has more than a few hikers exclaiming out loud. You can stop right here and bask...More

A great walk which springs a surprise on you after walking for an hours through the trees. As soon as you walk out you are amongst the flowers in a meadow worth the bulk of Mount Baker right in front of you. Wander around the...More

After nearly 10 years of having people telling us we should hike the Skyline Divide trail, and after one attempt where we were socked in with fog, we finally were able to hike this trail in spectacular weather. The trail is fairly short (2 miles...More

The road in hasn't been graded yet but I hear that's happening soon. I just went slow and didn't have any problems, I guess the maintenance crews didn't schedule for the early snow melt. The first couple miles are a bit steep through the forest,...More
