The Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest in Washington is a National Forest extending more than 140 miles along the western slopes of the Cascade Range from the Canada–US border to the northern boundary of Mount Rainier National Park.

This was a brutal hike but I am not in the best of shape, AND my 10 and 11 year old daughters made it up with less whining than myself... So I would say it's definitely worth the brilliant beauty at the top! Great workout!

Hiked this one by myself today. From Seattle I left at 9AM and got to the parking area by 11:30 (20 min traffic delay). Note, the last 30 minutes of the drive is on a dirt road. Also plan on having no cell service if you have AT&T once you turn onto Beckler Rd and also no cell service anywhere on the trail. Trail was not too busy, nothing like Serene. Thanks to the person that commented about trash on the trail and a bigger thanks to the person/group that cleaned all of it up. Regarding the bugs, I didn't notice any bugs really, granted I used bug spray, but I was expecting swarms and that was far from the case. Trail is well groomed, easy to follow. At one point the trail splits (just after the Virgin Lake), don't worry, both paths lead quickly to the same place. Used my gps watch the whole time to get the length. Because the road is closed this trail is 12 miles long so plan accordingly (at least 6 hours up and back). Bring water, this is not an easy hike. 2-3 times more difficult than Rattlesnake.

Nice afternoon hike, trails was in great condition, no bug issue!
