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.

Evening hike up for epic wildflowers & eerie wildfire haze sunset- but remote wilderness summit experience completely ruined by fellow hikers using a drone circling summit ridge for over 30 minutes.
Inconsiderate of fellow trail users.
Don’t be a drone. Keep drones out of others wilderness experience.

My wife and I went up for a quick sunset hike got to the top and someone was flying a drone. It totally ruin are experience. Show some respect people !

With each up and down, each bend traversed, all were meet with soaring mountain peeks, beautiful rock formations and gorgeous lakes scattered through out.
Between the spectrum of beautiful colors, the diverse changes of landscape ....I don't have the right words.to describe.This hike needs to be only experienced.
Good day, great hike!

Beautiful hike. Well maintained "manicuered" pathway that's friendly to visitors of all abilities including kids on strollers. Trail ends near the caves and many will go off the trail to get close at their own risk.

A fantastic hike with amazing views of Mt Baker and 3 pretty lakes. Many patches of snow remains at higher elevations, but totally doable in hiking boots. Pack plenty of water and snacks & enjoy!!

Such a great hike. The road was bumpy but just fine.
The trails has it all Forest, meadows, Waterfalls, Creeks, Small mountain lakes, and lots of wildlife.

A very easy day hike, or stay over. It's worth walking over to Lower Curtis Glacier, though it's a bit more difficult and some rock scramble. Swim in the icey Lake on a hot day. Very refreshing.

Spectacular!!!! There was smoke from the fires but none the less excellent hiking... 8/9/18

Hiked this on Aug 10. I would say it's an easy hike until you hit the boss creek towards the end. Took some courage to cross. Use water shoes and hiking poles to cross or hike up to the top of the creek and then cross. Once pass the fall, 10 min later you will see the amazing glacier. Be careful of loose rocks, that's the hard part of the trail.

Fantastic hike with challenging elevation, well worth with 360 view at the top

A beautiful easy hike. We only made it to Maple Grove campground which is about a 4 mile nice relatively flat hike great for a day trip. I can't wait to go back and camp there.

I found this to be a great hike for an older newcomer to hiking. The trail is beautiful all the way. The first two-thirds is quite easy and the last third gets more hilly. I think this is a good trail for a newbie to gauge their own stamina/skill on forest trails before going off on a tougher hike you find you may not be able to enjoy. If you can make it all the way to the end and back without skipping a beat, then you are ready for bigger things If you struggle on the last third of the trail, then keep on conditioning before heading off on more strenuous trails.

Neat, short trail. Decent little hike. Very public-friendly. Prone to crowds. Amazing views. Was very rainy before the holiday this year, but still well-worth the hike. LOTS of dogs

The trail up to round Lake has been maintained but from there to the old Kennedy Hotsprings junctions is tough. Camp Lake and Lake Byrne are amazing! And bring your fishing pole, they are jumping!

Did this one back in may, beautiful wilderness area, lots of switchbacks..

Great experience... Black bear encounter 1/4 mi into the trail... loud rustle in the bushes above us 2 hikers... Bear looked straight at us for a second, veered away above trail...adrenaline pumping.

4th water crossing around noon time challenging... water very loud, fast, and good downward angle.

Amazing hike however the road to get to the trail head is awful! SOOO many potholes and was really hard on our little rental car. Once you get to the trail head however it was a really good hike. Would Recommend.

Fun hike! Brought my puppy! Unfortunately people need to pack out there dogs poo. No garbage which was nice. Lots of beautiful butterflies and flowers. Not much shade so hiking on an almost 90 degree day was a lil more challenging. I definitely would do this hike again.

We camped down the hill at boulder creek and decided to do this hike, it was well worth it and very pretty from the top, we had clear sky and amazing views of baker. On the way down my hiking partner fell and hurt her knee. When I stopped to preform first aid (road rash with rocks in the wound) multiple people came to offer help, which was pretty awesome to see. On our way down some hikers gave us some peanuts to feed some birds and we got to see a lot of dogs on the way down, so my injured partner still had a great time and both of us were shocked by all the friendly caring people on the trails that day. We both can’t wait to go back and explore some more up here. It sure is beautiful!

August, 6,2018! Great hike!

Really spectacular views but the trail to Hannigan Pass is hot, hot, hot with little or no water. Rough trail with lots of rocks and scree crossings. Once to Hannigan, you can do the peak or drop to Boundary Camp. Reservations are required. Note, this camp is the LAST place you can take your dog. Continuing on to Copper Ridge you enter the National Park where dogs are not allowed. Another 4 miles of ups and downs brings you to Egg Lake. You will drop almost 300 ft to.get to your campsite, also reservations required. Frim Egg lake you can launch anassault on Copper Ridge Lookout,.about 3.6 miles and 1400 ft elevation. We hiked up in the evening to catch the sunset and then hiked down using headlamps. Very few snowfields are left, none impeding travel. The views are tremendous but there is a price to pay. Try to avoid the climbs and the hike back from Hannigan pass during the heat of the day. It is BRUTAL!

Stunning views around every corner! My sister and I hiked on a foggy day which made for some amazing photos. The mountain run off made waterfalls all along the way. Towards the top, the wildflowers were popping out everywhere! It was gorgeous! Bring water proof shoes to cross the rapid streams! Trekking poles are also helpful.

One of my favorites. Lots of fun to climb.

Nice hike. steep but not too long, and for such a short hike, beautiful view. the best part is we had the whole point to ourselves. the parking at the trail head was completely full but we only saw one other person on the trail with her dog.

Absolutely stunning . Trails can feel very narrow in the moments of high traffic but as long as everyone is respectful and responsible this trail is a breeze

Closed for Search and Rescue.

Looks like a beautiful trail. However, it is closed for SR. I hope they find her safe.

Great easy hike! My 6 year old had no trouble going there and back and even we spent time "exploring" the edges of the ice caves for a few hours before heading back. No T-mobile cell service shortly after getting onto mountain loop highway. Our only complaint today were the aggressive flies near the end of trail near the ice caves.

Very good hike with enough elevation gain to be challenging but still manageable. The view from the lookout afforded pretty amazing views in all directions. The one drawback today was the available views were a bit diminished in clarity by haze from forest fires. Bugs were annoying but not dreadful on the lower reaches of the trail.

Beautiful great views of Roosevelt glacier
