The hike is stunning with beautiful views despite a rain-filled second day that led us to hike from Baker Lake towards Skoki Lodge and then back to the parking lot all in one day. The only downside is that we lost our GPS Rhino radio along the trail somewhere between Deception Pass and the Fish Creek parking lot. If anyone finds it please comment as we'd really like it back. Many thanks in advance!

Beautiful route with steep mountain passes, pretty alpine meadows, glaciers & crystal clear lakes. We hiked the loop over two days in a clockwise direction, camping overnight at Merlin Meadows; 16km on day one, 21km on day two. Would definitely recommend!

Hiked the trail with my 8 year old son. Spent first night at Baker Lake and second night at Merlin Meadows. All around great experience, lots of wildflowers, amazing alpine valleys and lakes. Challenging but doable for most.

Amazing views, alpine lakes, snow capped peaks. Loved the Skoki Loop and little side trip to Skoki Lakes (Zigadenus and Myostosis). We stayed two nights at Baker Lake and day hiked the loop. Only downside to the trail is the first 4km, which are on a gravel access road... otherwise a fantastic trail and backpacking circuit!
