There are many trail options in this area! I started at the Heather Meadows Upper Lodge and hiked the Wild Goose trail and continued to Artist Point. If you're looking for a secluded forest hike this isn't the trail for you. Trail very exposed, very busy on a weekday! The views at Artist Point of Mt Baker and Mt Shuskan are amazing! No clouds in the sky today.

Had been there on memorial day weekend. Though it was crowded at parking lot but was much clearer during the hike as not many people were trying to go up. It was not easy as snow was thin due to sun but it’s totally worth it. One of the best viewpoint in Pacific Northwest for sure

This was a fairly easy scenic hike. The weather was perfect and the trail traffic light. The narrow trail runs along the side of a ridge so bears paying careful attention where you are walking. At Artist's point, it opens up to a panoramic view of Mount Baker and surrounding valleys and mountains that is breathtaking. I felt as though I had just stepped out of a picture perfect postcard.
