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.

Took the family. The kiddo did great. he loved it. Very busy trail. But the view at the end was worth it.

I haven't done a lot of heavy physical activity in a while due to health restrictions. I struggled to make it to the top. But there are many places and benches to stop and rest if you are out of shape like me. ☺

Amazing trail, camped at the lake and left around 9. Once over the ridge it becomes a more exposed, some loose gravel and snow made it a little harder to traverse, bring good boots! views at the top are absolutely worth it. Bug spray might be needed at the lake, but they weren't too bad.

Easy and beautiful trail! The last ice cave has a beautiful waterfall at the end of it if you peek down it from the right angle. I would recommend staying on the designated trail though. Avalanche debris field galore if you veer off!

This hot springs was cool if you never been to a Hot Springs, but in general it sucked. There were no signs leading up to the Hot Springs, the road was awful and had so many potholes.

went up to Silver lakes and it was still mostly ice floating in the lake. it was cold last night and the mosquitoes were out in full force, but it was worth it. We wanted to make it up to twin lakes but without mini spikes and poles the trail becomes rough. So we hiked out the next day. I'm not sure why Twin Lakes is not on here but it's a great hike.

Sadly rating this a 3. Yes the lake was gorgeous (rate that a 5) but everyone seems to go up there to party and blare music. Was not the relaxing backpacking spot that we were hoping to find. The camping was crazy packed more like a KOA.

Its at the end of the road. gps coord takes you just short of it. There is sharp right road there. Dont take it. That road is tight and I dont know where it leads. I took it with my big truck and had to back out. Did not see any markers for the trail. Luckily there were some campers at the trail head and they pointed us to the trailhead. Great lake views and I will probably camp there next time. So quiet and very few people!
