Evening hike up for epic wildflowers & eerie wildfire haze sunset- but remote wilderness summit experience completely ruined by fellow hikers using a drone circling summit ridge for over 30 minutes.
Inconsiderate of fellow trail users.
Don’t be a drone. Keep drones out of others wilderness experience.

My wife and I went up for a quick sunset hike got to the top and someone was flying a drone. It totally ruin are experience. Show some respect people !

Great hike. Last 5 miles to the trailhead requires careful driving as the road is pretty basic. A little hazy today so visibility was just okay. Bring bug spray!

With each up and down, each bend traversed, all were meet with soaring mountain peeks, beautiful rock formations and gorgeous lakes scattered through out.
Between the spectrum of beautiful colors, the diverse changes of landscape ....I don't have the right words.to describe.This hike needs to be only experienced.
Good day, great hike!

A fantastic hike with amazing views of Mt Baker and 3 pretty lakes. Many patches of snow remains at higher elevations, but totally doable in hiking boots. Pack plenty of water and snacks & enjoy!!

Such a great hike. The road was bumpy but just fine.
The trails has it all Forest, meadows, Waterfalls, Creeks, Small mountain lakes, and lots of wildlife.

watson lakes were great. anderson lake not so much. pretty buggy

Spectacular!!!! There was smoke from the fires but none the less excellent hiking... 8/9/18

Fantastic hike with challenging elevation, well worth with 360 view at the top

Amazing hike however the road to get to the trail head is awful! SOOO many potholes and was really hard on our little rental car. Once you get to the trail head however it was a really good hike. Would Recommend.

Fun hike! Brought my puppy! Unfortunately people need to pack out there dogs poo. No garbage which was nice. Lots of beautiful butterflies and flowers. Not much shade so hiking on an almost 90 degree day was a lil more challenging. I definitely would do this hike again.

We camped down the hill at boulder creek and decided to do this hike, it was well worth it and very pretty from the top, we had clear sky and amazing views of baker. On the way down my hiking partner fell and hurt her knee. When I stopped to preform first aid (road rash with rocks in the wound) multiple people came to offer help, which was pretty awesome to see. On our way down some hikers gave us some peanuts to feed some birds and we got to see a lot of dogs on the way down, so my injured partner still had a great time and both of us were shocked by all the friendly caring people on the trails that day. We both can’t wait to go back and explore some more up here. It sure is beautiful!

Absolutely stunning . Trails can feel very narrow in the moments of high traffic but as long as everyone is respectful and responsible this trail is a breeze

Wonder hike not to difficult. We did with three kids in about 1.5 hours one way and camped for one night. Found some great cliffs to jump off into really clear water.

Very good hike with enough elevation gain to be challenging but still manageable. The view from the lookout afforded pretty amazing views in all directions. The one drawback today was the available views were a bit diminished in clarity by haze from forest fires. Bugs were annoying but not dreadful on the lower reaches of the trail.

Car got broken into at the trailhead camping for one night. Good one night backpacking trip but not worth it if your car is gonna get broken into.

Loved this trail, did it with my 4 children and all but one said it was their favourite hike ever. How’s that for a win!

One of the best hikes ever! Beautiful hike and warm lakes :) Too many bugs though...

amazing hike and my little Chevy sonic hatchback made it up the forest road at 5 mph.

amazing hike! No so much bugs and water warm and clear!

BEWARE!!! I parked for an hour and three minutes this afternoon and my window was busted when I got back to my car. Going to cost me hundreds of dollars for a shitty hike.

If anyone sees an Orange REI rainfly laying around on the road somewhere please contact me at cranswic@hawaii.edu... lost on July 24th

The hike was GREAT! Totally gets your blood pumping and then the views take your breath away!

My favorite hike in WA! Bring bug spray and get there a little early to get a good parking spot.

Great hike! Trailhead definitely is tricky because you need to cross the creek ( water is moving quick )

For the level of effort this is an easy hike with great views of Baker and nearby areas. Plenty of insects along the way so bring plenty of bug’s spray. No need for crampons as the snow is easily passable.

the most epic hike I have ever done!!!!

Awesome trail! It is rated correct as hard. It’s no so much the length of the trail as much as it’s the up and up and up some more. There plenty of water on the trail and snow. I found it was easier to cross the 4 snow packs with my crampons as my knee was not liking the unstable surface. Views were AMAZING! Lots of wild flowers and water falls. You will not be alone I. This trail for long. It is very busy but not over crowded. Parking is a problem if your not there by 8 a.m. at the latest. In the way down cars were parked for a half mile making the already super narrow road worse. Enjoy the hike, take pics
