The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest is one of the most visited forests in the country. Located on the west side of the Cascades between the Canadian border and Mt. Rainier National Park, you will find glacier-covered peaks, spectacular mountain meadows and old-growth forests rich in history and outdoor opportunities.

Still some snow. Did not make it all the way. Rain, sleet, low cloud cover, and limited visibility.

Completed 7/7/19. Incredible, diverse hike with beautiful view. There were about 10 snow fields we had to cross, but the snow was mostly packed down. To arrive at the trailhead, definitely bring a high clearance car. The hike starts off in the woods crossing little creeks and then ascends into meadows. These meadows become boulder fields that were snow-covered and did involve some trail-finding. To make it to the lookout, a little bit of trail-finding is necessary and some bouldering towards the top.

Road to the trailhead was full of potholes and certainly requires a high clearance vehicle. Bottomed out once with a mid sized SUV. Hiked up and stayed one night. Trail itself was well maintained- there is a section that is blocked off for good reason, it has an impassable snow field section so stick to the left! The lookout was occupied by the time we got up and there were only a few other spots to camp- we ended up right outside the lookout cabin due to the fact that most of the campsites were rained out and had puddles. We didn’t have great weather so mostly we were fogged in but once in a while there was a beautiful clearing of the clouds and we got a view! Overall pretty chilly at the top but no bugs

Not much to add to review below. No water between Devil’s Pass and Devil’s Dome but creek running well just past Devil’s Dome at campsite. Mosquitos were intense at lower levels especially near the ridge. Beautiful trip and not crowded.

This trail was amazing. Has all the feature I look for in a trail. View’s, Woods, a lake, wild flowers and more. Recommend this hike 10/10

Beautiful hike! From the saddle you can see Baker and Shuksan on a clear day! The bugs are mainly around the lakes. Some snow where it branches off with ptarmigan ridge trail but you can see where you need to go. Some snow also at the saddle but you just have to head up! Best way to do the loop is park at Anne Lake trailhead and head up wild goose to artist point to split the big climb up. Lots of pika!

We started at Alice Point and headed clockwise, there was a couple of snowfields to cross where microspikes might have been helpful, snow was soft so you wouldn’t go far. Caught a glimpse of baker through the clouds. Really nice scenic trail.

Hiked this trail last Friday, the trail was in great condition and no snowfields to cross. Great views from the top.

I can't really rate this trail because I couldn't find the trailhead. The directions ended on the road with nothing around. I continued on the road because this happens often and the only trailhead I found was for blue lake, so we did that hike instead.

Wonderful hike, 26 switchbacks, wildflowers, lake and mountain views. Wear bug spray, you will be left alone. Outhouse at start of trailhead. Marmot sighting was awesome. Will hike again!

This trail was super muddy in many places, and it was that swamp mud. My dog and I did fine up to Pinnacle, unfortunately couldn't make it to the peak because after the lake scramble I couldn't get line of sight on the trail and didn't want to continue if it was going to be like that the whole way (with the dog). Stopped at Bear Lake on the way back because it was right there and it was much more inviting than Pinnacle, but no streams or anything on that side. Make sure you bring something worthy of off-road, the road is thick with massive pot holes and very rocky. Honestly after the Bear Lake split in the trail, the road and trail are equally challenging! I will probably come back to this one when it's hopefully drier and I don't have the pup with me.

Excellent hike!!! Wow...view! The alpine flowers were all in bloom

Was a fun, long hike. It's mostly flat with a few not too steep hills. Terrain is old gravel road, some areas are rocky, and a little bit of dirt trail. There is a large log that you need to use as a "bridge" to cross the river, but wasn't difficult. The town was really cool and the backdrop was beautiful. Definitely want to do this one again.

The trail was clear all the way, well marked and just beautiful, we will be back in fall to add on to this hike

lightly travelled. beautiful views!

Trail is definitely longer than listed. Beautiful but tough. Lots of bugs at the top. Very few hikers.

The last portion of NF-1540 to the trailhead is hard to drive with sharp turns and gravels and potholes. The trail condition is good yet there is still snow that would need poles. The maps shows 7.3 miles in total but it doesn’t count the part of climbing to the hidden lake peak to the lookout house. Adding that up, my recording showed 9.0 miles in total. The lake is beautiful; it would be even better in a sunny day.
