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.

loved this trail! nice easy hike and decent camping spots

12 Aug 2017: clear trails, no mud, snow-free.
Follow the PCT south from US12 and skirt the edge of White Pass ski area on your way up. Once out of the forest those views hit you smack in the face and it is beautiful. I was giggling to myself after gaining the ridge above Hogback Mtn. Totally worth the effort, mosquitos will find you so keep on truckin'!

Liked it! Pretty easy with a short climb and a nice summit!

Definitely worth the hike beautiful place .

This is one of the best hike I ever done !!. First mile of the hike is plain gravel road then you will see the signs where you will take right. Once you reach the trail head first half mile easy then it's start getting steep. Trail is in very good condition. We started around 8:00am, parking lot was almost full so we parked around the roadside. It was foggy and cool so bugs were not that bad. Took us 3 hours and 20 min to get up to Foggy lake which is just extra less then a mile away from the basin. We took couple small breaks to eat snacks. If you go to gothic basin you should defiantly go up to foggy lake. We had lunch at foggy lake and the view was mind blowing!! Took us 2 hours and 40 minutes to come back to the parking lot and parking lot was over flowing. We meet people of all ages up there which was super impressive, It's want easy hike for us.
Checklist:
1. Go early in morning on weekday and on sunny day.
2. Plenty of water and food we took 3-4 liters and it was gone.
3. Extra layer of clothing and hiking poles at foggy lake it gets cold.
northwest forest pass.
4. Sunscreen/sunglasses/ bug spray.

This is a hike where every turn you take there is a different beautiful view.

Best of luck!!!

Not the best trail for runnning. The lower section is great but up higher the trail is really rocky in points that make it easy to twist and ankle or trip...and I would never try running here on the weekend, way too many people. I only saw 1 person the whole time starting at 5 am on a cloudy day
