I had to return to do this one on a sunny day and it was magnificent! Nearly 360 views from Artist Point. Many trails were created to get to the top so choose your own adventure from the upper parking lot. We hugged the groomed trail, keeping it to our left before the terrain flattens out and naturally provides a wide trail that meanders left before switching back right.

From artist point to the summit, you have about a 1 mile hike up. The trail is marked, barely, but it's rugged and fun. breathtaking views of Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan, a lake and the Ski Area.

This hike needs to be combined with another hike to earn the five stars as its a long drive to Baker for a short hike. Leave about 2.5 hours for this hike and explore the terrain up top. You need to wander and explore. Its a three star hike if you hike up and down.

excellent hike! Definitely recommended for those amazing views. trail can be a little rough with lots of loose rocks but almost anyone could do it. also prepare for year round snowpack in locations

One of the best hikes in the area. Usually need an ice axe before late August as steep snow slopes linger. Spectacular views.
