This was a nice island hike. A few good views and a nice walk along Mountain Lake at the end. Roads go to the top of the mountain that you work so hard to get to, with the associated crowds.

Great little hike. Nice views of the bridge. We had read the previous reviews and did not attempt to hike around the perimeter. For families, you still need to watch little hikers near a few points along the edges.

Fabulous afternoon hike, swam in 2 lakes and enjoyed the spectacular views.

Doesn’t get much better.

Simple hike on a paved paths. As of 08/13/2018 the area is very smokey and you won’t be able to see many mountains.

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!

Beautiful casual hike but I don’t recommend trying to loop it. Next time we’ll stay on the main trail and hike it as an out and back. Everyone is right. It’s a poorly marked trail and can be frustrating if trying to loop.
Still worth it though!

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!!

This is a scenic walk. It is easy but on the mountain side of the loop it gets a wee bit challenging if you have knee issues, are out of shape, or are not sure footed. It is a single file trail.

Stay on the side of the lodge or parking lot and go back and forth on that path if you are not a walking person or have medical issues.

Fire and Ice is a quick and super easy trail with gorgeous views.
It is a must!!!! I am amazed at how beautiful it is.

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.

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!

Awesome views! One of my favorites

Great hike with a bit challenging ascent. Beautiful trees and warm lake!

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

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

Hiked this on Sunday, had super pretty views but also had a lot of people up there

We’ve done this hike 3 times now and it never disappoints. A bit of snow near the top section of the meadows. The scramble seems to have been revamped and was easier than we remembered it to be before. View from the top of gorgeous.

We started at Mountain Lake going towards Little Summit. The hike up to Little Summit is a series of steep switchbacks. Definitely detour to Little Summit for some beautiful views. The hike from Little Summit to Mt. Constitution was less steep, and there were some nice views along Mountain Lake. The view at the top of Mt. Constitution is stunning, and there’s a neat tower with historical information. The hike back to the Mountain Lake parking was easy, and we stopped by Twin Lakes for a relaxing, quiet break. The last bit of the hike was along the shore of Mountain Lake with beautiful views of the mountains all around. Overall, the trail was well-maintained and well-marked. There were a few downed trees we had to climb over on the way to Little Summit, but nothing huge.

Beautiful hike! Bring your 4 wheel drive. Not your wife’s Chrysler 200. Ha! The climb to the trail head on the pot hole ridden gravel road was a little much for a little car. It can be done because we did it but it was a little scary. Lots of bugs but totally worth it!

Absolutely beautiful! We did have to trek through more snowy spots than we expected but it was so worth it! We Caught 3 Eastern Brook Trout in Iceberg lake but they were too small to keep.

If you're in the area, go! Walk around the path and take in the amazing views of Mt. Shuksan over the lake.

Beautiful views but terrible trail marking. We went clockwise around the loop, and somehow ended up going an extra mile up and down some rock scrambles that brought us to water and a cliff face about 3/4 around the loop. Oops. We had to back track. Would love if the park could mark the trail a bit better.

Took my 7 year old twins to Anderson Lake Friday morning to Saturday. Great trail! Buggy but that’s to be expected. By the time we left Saturday around noon the parking lot was filled! Glad we went Friday. We had Anderson Lake to ourselves and Mt. Baker came out just in time for sunset. It did get frosty at night so still very cold up that high but once the sun touched our camp it was so delightful!

Fantastic hike. Great views, easy parts combined with some nice, but strenuous uphills. Loved it!

The hike itself was gorgeous! Short, sweet, and beautiful views, and puppy approved.. Some of the switch backs were pretty dusty and loose from lack of rain but we managed. We admired a couple seals while eating a snack along the perimeter trail. My only complaint would be trying to find a parking spot among the hordes of people and cars admiring the views from the bridge.

A fun day hike for the family. Bring your bug repellent. The mosquitos are vicious. The views are well worth the minor inconvenience of insects.

Hiked today! First time and Loved it. Climbing and climbing switchbacks which never seem to end until you hit the medow. It was beautiful and the climbs were worth it. It's pretty buggy out there, and hot! Luckily the water at the river crossings were ice cold a nice way to cool down.
Also beware of road conditions. There's some damage on the forest road about a mile from the trailhead. So we added an extra mile to our hike.
