Last day in the great northwest. Weather has been perfect all week. Excited to go to hike Mount Baker. Rain forecasted all day. Should we go? We decided to do it. Got there and the wind was blowing, mountains hidden by clouds. And there was a steady rain. 46 degrees in mid-July and we did not have the best clothing... More

I grew up in Bellingham (the largest town near Mt. Baker). The views of Mt. Shuksan from here against mirror lake are world-class. If you're visiting in the summer time, make sure you take in the views from Artist Point and, if you have time, hike up to the top of table mountain for even better views of Mt. Baker,... More

The byway to thr summit was incredible. Lovely from every hair pin turn. We stopped the reflection lake before going further, very pretty, then made it up to artist point opened much earlier this year due to the lack of snow. We enjoyed the scenic snow walks and had a tailgate picnic then slipped into thr worse Porto potty that... More

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!

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
