Going to Artists Point was a great trip! I really enjoyed the drive to the top and walking the trail. Very peaceful and great views. Seems to be a lot of trails to hike but I didn't have time to do most of them. This would be a must for someone visiting!

There are many trails available for hiking here - catering to the new and experienced hiker. Artist Point gives you breathtaking views, and you can drive right to the top. There are several 1-3km long trails at the top, if you're looking for a short hike. And there are many longer trails available along the way if you're looking for... More

I couldn't make it to Artists Point, the snow hadn't been cleared yet. But it's a beautiful ride and the views of adjoining mountains was fantastic. Skiers were complaining about the melting snow in April as the season neared its close.

Planned a trip here to go hiking with our three dogs. Wife and I aren't experienced hikers so we stopped in at the Ranger Station in Glacier on the way up the Hwy to get some suggestions for easy hikes. The Park Ranger recommended the Bagley Lakes trail then drive up to the end of the highway to Artist Point.... More

My husband and I went with our friends. We went in a jeep with no top.... it was definately an adventure. If you are thinking of going . To the top be prepared for any weather. We were in shorts and flip flops. Should have take boots or runners. It was lovely and sunny then started to pour rain. We... More

A must see and explore in Washington even if your not a skier or snow boarder. The drive up to Mt Baker is breath taking and so scenic even in poor weather. Come winter be prepared for nasty conditions and deep snow! Lots to do for all ages and photo opportunities abound!

My wife and I ski'd at Mt Baker Wednesday this week. We live in Issaquah and traveled there as their website quoted 70+ inches on the Pan Dome and 40+ at Heather Meadows. It is my opinion based on the the conditions that these measurements are pure fiction and false! There were huge bare spots all over the mountain top... More

Decided to make the road trip down from Vancouver to try skiing at Mt. Baker for the first time. The drive through the forest was beautiful, although I can imagine some portions being a bit sketchy once it snows more and if you don't have the right vehicle/tires. As for the mountain itself, it was great. Lift tickets are slightly... More

We drove up Mt Baker in June and the amount of snow still at the top was amazing - being from MN we were even impressed - the paths leading all around were fun and easy walks from the parking areas

It is really worth visiting the Mt. BAKER from ARTIST POINT in Snoqualmie National Forest, where we can see clearly and can have a closer look. We can feast our eyes watching the snow clad Mt. Baker on one side and Mt. SHUKSAN on the other side. A Walk on trials is quite enjoyable. Remember, to check the weather condition... More
