I did this hike on November 3,2017. The main road on baker is clean and easy to drive however, once you get off the main road and take the trail road it is not clear and there is a lot of snow. Must be confident driving backcountry in snow. I took my Subaru Outback and was okay taking it slow, 1 more foot of snow an I probably wouldn't make it to the trail head. Be prepared to snow shoe. I recommend snowshoes or it's going to be a grueling hike. Beautiful scenery! Must do in the summer as well.

Incredible views, too many peaks and waterfalls to count. Black flies were a bother, but well worth the trip. Excellent day hike, strenuous but a gradual gain for the first part of the trail.

Favorite so far, a long exhausting day but AMAZING views. Panoramic from all sides. Hard but so worth it.

The 1 mile trail from the pass to the peak is moderately steep in places but also well defined and not overly difficult. Views start to open up fairly quickly and get better as you continue to gain elevation. The top of the peak is a surprisingly large flat open area with views of lofty peaks in every direction. Great hike and highly recommended.

If you can get past the crowds and the black flies in the valley, it doesn't get any better than this. One of the best views anywhere, great wildflowers, not too many people...just a great hike all around.
