I loved this hike! Up here visiting a friend and went while she was in class. Paths are very obvious, making solo hiking less daunting. Fairly steep incline up to the Echo checkpoint. There is a really nice lookout point about a half mile from the lake, you can see everything, BEAUTIFUL!!

It was a nice walk, but if you’re looking for views or a good climb this isn’t for you. Great for children and/or strollers. Not strenuous at all. It is very clean and well maintained!

Went yesterday with my dad and our dogs. Started our hike at 8:30am. We started the hike from chuckenut on the hwy so it was the 7.9 mile hike compared to 5 miles from the samish outlook. Trail was in pretty good shape.
I’ll say if you start at the hwy and not samish outlook those extra miles are nothing buck switch backs going up. My legs are so sore today.

Hiked this many times!

A nice moderate hike with great views at the top! A decent elevation gain and dense forest to hike through.

Beautiful Hike better to go early morning. We crossed the border and was at the trail head by 5:30 am.
We went mid October no snow sun was out. Trail marked very well, but at the beginning hard to see in the dark even with our head lamps. But as you enter the parking lot the trail entrance is to your left. I brought the dog..she loved it.
For sure will go again.

Beautiful and pretty steep hike up. You can camp, but no fires so I'd recommend if you want to that you do it in the warmer months.

A difficult yet rewarding hike. The incline starts immediately after leaving the trailhead, and continues all the way to the divide. Once above the treeline, the views are panoramic and wonderful! I encountered snow about 2/3 up the climb in early July, but a little caution and it was fine – even with no poles. The hike's biggest downside is the road getting there; it's fairly long, and quite rough.

Beautiful walk, but the end is very anticlimactic.

Nice and long. Pretty steep and an amazing view on top. Just not that much to look at besides trees and a couple of streams on your way up

Took my dog to the main lookout today. Gorgeous views and sunset. Started the trail from Chuckanut Dr at 1:44 PM and back to the car at 5:20PM. I started little too late. It got so dark the last mile before the car. But I used my phone flashlight almost to the car before totally out of battery. 8 miles roundtrip with 1900 ft elevation gain. My little pup American Bully was such a trooper

Beautiful trail! Not too hard getting up as it only takes an hour to get to the ridge views. Made it up in hiking shoes only although it was snowy throughout and a bit icy. The views are worth every minute! Definitely doing this one again soon.

Good views. Good for running and taking out of towners to.

Great trail for trail running. Best views of waterfalls in the area. I would recommend this as a good place to take people from out of town for a nice and easy walk, with good views.

Be prepared to climb up hill a lot! The view on top was amazing. If you’ve never been here bring a camera or phone to capture the moment. It has some distance to it as well so be realistic with your abilities before trying this hike. I loved every minute of it and would recommend this hike to anyone reading.

Late entry from Fall last year. It was amazing views of Baker, and Mount Shuksan. It was clear day that day. Amazing views at the summit. It was worth it every sweats and to be rewarded with such of beauty..
The signs were pretty visible from the main highway. 12 miles of dirt road to the trailhead. Very narrow dirt roads and uphills. Compact car is doable. 4000 ft to the trailhead. And it’s about 6000 ft or more to hike to the summit.

Drove up in a SUV, drove slower to avoid the potholes. Saw some cars in the parking lot, so doable. In a previous comment, someone mentioned it is more like a walk. It is not. Right off the bat, you start with a 2 mile climb to the first ridge., approximately 1 hour up. Definitely not a beginner’s hike. The views from the ridge are spectacular. You can continue for another 2.5 miles, climbing on and off to the top ridge ( another hour or less).
We had sunny skies, clouds coming in as we left. Would highly recommend this hike!

Superb hike with great view of Mt Baker.

Beautiful trail. A nice gradual incline for about an hour and then you have the most spectacular views the rest of the way. We drove up in a small car (successfully, despite the potholes). The hike wasn’t that difficult, we saw a lot of families with small children hiking.

Great hike. Easy overall with a great view! Super good for dogs!

Gorgeous hike. Majority of the climb is at the beginning like mentioned before. Take your time and go slow as it is mostly loose rock.

Once you’re up top though, wow. Feel free to explore the top to see different angles of the valley below.

I would advise you go early, as the sunrise coming over the mountains makes table top and Baker shine a nice gold colour. The parking lot also gets quite busy if it’s a nice day out.

This hike isn’t very long but very worth it, I would suggest you to Ptarmigan Ridge or another hike with it to extend your day.

Aptly named, this hike really puts you up on a tabletop to take in an incredible 360* view of Mt. Baker and the Cascade Range, Artist’s Point, Ptarmigan Ridge, Heather Meadows, and miles of amazingness.

Take the upward slanting trail at the west corner of the Artist’s Point parking lot (packed to the gills and overflowing a mile down the access road on this sunny Fall day.) It is a brief but rugged hike to get up to the “table”. Most elevation is gained in the first half mile with one particular rock-face span of trail requiring slow and careful attention to footfalls on loose rock. In general, about 70% of the trail is gravel and scree. You’ll be looking at your dusty boots a lot as you negotiate the trail so be sure to stop frequently and look up!

Once on top, the trail wanders and weaves, and at time splits and disappears. It may appear on the AllTrails map that this hike connects with the Chain Lakes trail but it does not. The furthest reach of the Table Mountain trail looks down on the Chain Lakes trail. Stop here to enjoy your snacks while pondering how small those hikers appear below and how immense Mt. Baker is above. You are a magnificent speck of stardust, and being here—eating string cheese and pepperoni sticks—is a mysterious miracle. :-)

Took on this hike near the end of our stay. I was pretty worn out so I only made it past the 4th switch back. I was so disappointed but better judgement prevailed. Not a terrible hard hike but if heights are a factor this is not for you. On the day we went there must have been 100 + going up and down, so the switch backs were very crowded.

Great experience today! Fantastic glacier view.

I love hitting this trail with my dogs. Gorgeous Autumn color painted the forests. Blue waters mirror the sky. It’s heaven for me

I wasn't sure how I felt about this hike spot when my friend & I first got to it. There is about a 45 minute drive up to the trailhead littered with potholes, so be careful. When we got to the trailhead & began our ascent we didn't think we would make it. (We are kind of fresh in the hiking game.) Fortunately, we trekked through and pushed our way to the top & I am not exaggerating when I say it was one of the most beautiful views I'd ever seen in my 23 years of life. Worth every bit of effort we gave to make it to the top. I am definitely doing it again.

This was my favorite hike this year! It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday. We arrive at 7:45am and finished at 2:10 pm hiking 9.8 miles. Spectacular views!!! The hike is a little bit strenuous at times but it is more then worth it! I will definitely backpack this trail next year!

Go on sunny day. Beautiful Mountain View’s especially Mt Baker
