Went up to Artist point just above the ski area. One can get there when the snow level is low and sometimes in the August time frame. It is well worth a visit since the area is so scenic and the hiking is great. The day we visited the mountain was in the clouds but there was still plenty to... More

We decided to drive from Bellingham to Heather Meadows Visitor area at Mt Baker. Had no idea that the 1 hr 45 minutes drive on hwy 542 would yield such beauty. Once at the visitors center, you learn of the many hikes and road to Artist Point. Definitely take the time and go there. The hikes are not strenuous and... More

We drove from Vancouver through Sumas border crossing, the drive all the way up to the mountain was spectacular. The scenery at the top is amazing at each point from Picture Lake to Artist Point. Suggest taking a picnic as there is no provision to buy food.

I lost count on the number of times i've been up here. The best thing is it's beautiful in any season. Summer is the most accessible of course with the road to artist's point being open. But there is nothing like the mountains draped in a fresh coast of snow either. Also in fall you can find some red ground... More

Made the drive up to the end of the Highway. Really not a bad road for going up a mountain. We felt the drive was certainly worth it. Beautiful views and snow in June.

I drove up the highway on June 18th and the snow was still piled high. The road to Artist Point was closed, so visitors were walking the 2.5 miles up the road, but it was snowed in on the top so all I could see was snow and peaks. I had the road to myself since I didn't start the... More

Booked a lovely cabin through Mt. Baker Lodging, and was so impressed at the level of professionalism, and the cleanliness and beauty of the rental. Every detail was covered. We drove up to the ski area, and every turn of the road was another postcard shot. Quiet, awesome, comfortable, and so worth the time and expense.

Unbelievable view drove right up to the snow. 1hr & 30 min drive from Bellingham or Canada border. Nice country drive clean air and many pictures . I'm glad I did it again after many years, with our guest from England.

There was a resident cat in the cafeteria. My husband is allergic and this cat was allowed to walk all around wherever it wanted. This definitely a health code violation. When we buy food, we don't order a side of pet hair.

I have visited Mt. Baker this month. It was a perfect weekend retreat into the nature. I have experienced skiing and it was fun.
