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

Mt. Baker is spectacular! Artist's Point is one of the most beautiful views of the Cascade mountains. There is easy hiking around the parking lot, which was crowded. The national park service needs more bathrooms to accommodate the crowds. This is a great location for short family hikes or a stepping off point for longer distances. This is not to... More

A 2 hour hike from the trail head. Lots of switchbacks through the woods. We had to cross 4 swift raging creeks. 3 of them were not bad but there was 1 that you had to get most of your lower body wet. If you were not careful you could of gotten swept down the creek. It was quite exciting.... More

Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan are two absolutely beautiful mountains - some of the most beautiful I've ever seen! We recently traveled to Artist Point by car with our two young children. What is great about this area is that you have to work very little to get amazing views. The reason is because the highway takes you right to... More

- Every skiing mountain is a rip-off no matter what. A normal pass is $70-ish, beginner track is $70-ish. Not worth it but only worth going once. - Also do not stay at the nearby resort because it will be a complete rip-off. Go to the mountain in the morning and then drive to Bellingham and stay in a guesthouse... More

I love boarding Baker!!! it is one of those mountains you can ride the mountain all day and find new fresh tracks. The chairs are bit sketchy and old but once you are plowing through a couple of feet of fresh powder on sneaky pete skipping trees and finding fresh lines you forget all about the chairs.

Fairly easy access during mid-summer months with incredible views of Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, and surrounding peaks. Only about 60 miles from Bellingham, Washington, the views rival the best of the Canadian Rockies and Swiss Alps.

Elevation of 5,000 feet and 360 degree of the surrounding mountain and valley bellow. It is a breathtaking view. It is not congested like Mt. Ranier, the road up to the mountain is open in summer time only. It is a very preserved area, very little development, just few ski resorts and one lift operator. The lift chair operator will...
