My boyfriend and I went to Mount Washington for a hiking/camping trip. As part of the trip, we visited the Artist's point, a very beautiful location, true to its name. We hiked to the glacier when a fellow hiker took us there after we got lost on the Heliotrope ridge trail - and what an amazing place to get lost!... More

I could go on and on about Mount Baker. It's a pendulum that swings from sensational remote mountain wilderness to a spiritual aura of natural splendor. Take 542 East. Take it all in.

Absolutely stunning views of mountain lakes and glaciers! Stopped first at Picture Lake, surrounded by a hiking trail and low-growing blueberry bushes full of sweet, ripe berries. Lots of people bent over, picking berries and after tasting a few, so was I. Beautiful reflections of the mountains in the water. Then on to the visitor center at the Meadows (gorgeous... More

This is way better than Rainier. The hike across the top is just breaktaking! Usually you can not take this hike because of the snow but it open this summer. Mt. Baker is not as busy as Rainier and just as breathtaking. It is not as commercialized as Rainier so make sure to bring your own snacks and drinks. Bring... More

Yes, I want you to know how GREAT the Mt. Baker area is, but if you all show up, it won't make it better (or will it?). This hidden jewel (to the extent that you don't notice a 10,000' mountain) has remote, really remote, and incredibly remote regions for those who really want to get away. At the same time,... More

For the money this is the best ski mountain in the BC, Washington state area. It's about 2 hours from Vancouver, cheap, and beautiful. There are no crowds, the snow quality was great even though it had been a week since fresh stuff. The sun was shining, the views were top notch. For $50 this is the best thing going.

Went up skiing/boarding with friends on New Years day. I hadn't been up to Mount Baker for about 18 years for no good reason. A fantastic day on the mountain. The views from the lifts and from the runs are spectacular at this time of the year. Snow covered peaks, glaciers, trees covered in snow looking surreal and super friendly... More

Highly recommend driving the 542, Mt Baker Hwy to the ski area and end of road. You have an amazing 360 degree view of Mount Baker area. There are restrooms there and you can hike (walk) around and get some great photos. Picture Lake on the way up is a great spot to get a picture of the water reflection... More
