First time snowshoeing. Views were incredible. Not so much a trail as several different boot paths in the snow to follow to the ridgeline. Too many people attempting to hike it without snowshoes or skis led to plenty of post holes to have to walk around. Proves it can be done without snowshoes at this point, but at what cost?

SnowshoeingGreat!Snow

We started around 11.30 from the parking lot. It was a bright sunny day. We first went to Artist point and the went up to Huntoon point and had lunch. Perfect 360 view from Huntoon point - Mt Baker and northern cascades. It was perfect day for snowshoeing.

Do you really need snow shoes to complete this hike right now or will be snow boots enough?

Amazing snowshoe hike. Views at Artist Point are incredible. Started the hike at 4:15 am and got to the top at Huntoon Point just before 6 am for sunrise.

Boundary signs up for avalanche risk so you can't go to far on this trail now. We knew that going up but still were able to hike part of the trail and play around in the snow a bit. Looking forward to safely adventuring here again in the future!

Great, lots of people so you need to get there early. We got there at 8:30 and was getting pack. A lot of first timers and slow people, gets crowded on the hills since there is not a path you have to move to the side of the way. Great views! Was nice and sunny but cold.

SnowshoeingGreat!

Sunny day for first time snowshoers who aren't very active. We had a slower pace, took breaks off to the side. The trail was busy but lots of space up top to enjoy the view.

HikingGreat!Snow

Hiked 12/28 for sunrise. Absolutely amazing views and by far the best snowshoe I’ve ever done. 100% recommend on a clear day. Also a heads up: if you want to snow camp there you need to book an online reservation with the Mt Baker ski resort to park overnight.
