Hiked 3 miles in the snow just right before the trailhead. If you don’t mind the snow, it’s a nice hike! Would definitely recommend waiting till later in the season. Will be coming back to do the actual hike itself.

Perfect thru hike for some young first timers. 7, 8 & 10 year olds had no problem while packing their own weight. Not a ton of places to fish for those wanting to through a line in, but the views of Baker are fantastic. Stayed at Noisy Creek CG and Maple Grove CG. Both great spots. Some downed trees that you have to get over as trail maintenance hasn’t been kept up for obvious reasons, but nothing too tough.

Great one night backpacking trip to test out gear! Rained on us lots day 1, but no puddles by morning of day 2. Camped at Anderson Point. A few blowdowns, but fairly easy to pass.

don’t be fooled by google maps — it takes a lot longer to get there than it says. we got there around 4:10 and there were probably about 7 or 8 people in the pool, so we left. if you look at past reviews directions, it’s not too hard to find. the road is a bit sketchy, there’s a bridge in which the dirt underneath it is starting to crumble. somebody put a stick up with a flag attached on the way back, but i’m not sure if it’s still there.

The road is snowed in about 2.5 miles from the trailhead. We hiked up the road to the trailhead but couldn’t find the trail once we got there. We saw lots of bear and cougar scat on our way up. We also lost a pair of micro spikes so if you find them please email me at kayladuskin at yahoo Happy hiking!

bumpy road with a lot of potholes but made it up in a vw jetta! tricky to find, make sure you take forest road 1130 and keep right at the 2 forks. in the parking lot there’s the dirt trail that goes to the spring and then another path that used to be the old road. gets busy around noon. hopefully you bump in to steve who’s been frequenting the spring for 30+ years! good guy :)

Take the National Forest road 1130. It’s right after a concrete bridge and the boulder creek campground . There are two forks in the road, take the second fork that you come across. Stay on the right. You will come upon a parking lot about a mile down the fork. We went around 12 and it was crowded. The hot spring isn’t that big so definitely plan to go early!

Great hike, lots of pretty views of the lake, many good spots to stop and take it all in.

nice and relaxing. lots of potholes on the road but doable with most vehicles. Be prepared to see nudist. check out swift Creek trail at the parking lot!

Nice place. Unfortunately, a lot of potholes on the road, and the pool was overcrowded

This is a super easy, beautiful stroll through some Douglas firs. Almost all of it takes places on a boardwalk. There are some beautiful old growth dougies here that are just wonderful. An easy way to see some beautiful trees.

Went out to this trail today, Monday 5/11/20 Trailhead is open. Accepts NW Forest Pass. Two trucks parked when I arrived around 1300. Saw a few pitched tents as well. Didn’t go to the restroom but lots of garbage piled up, sadly. Anyways, I went 4 miles in - just to the beginning of the lake. Be careful crossing the streams. I slipped on a rock! Your feet will get wet. In fact, my entire body got wet since I fell all in! It was a nice, refreshing, unexpected bath. I didn’t see other ways around them. There’s four to pass over around mile 3ish. Overall, fun mini hike. It started raining so I headed back. Will definitely go in farther next time. Didn’t run into a single person.

Great trail. Not a ton of incline, more of a relaxed but long trail. As you walk it, you get peaks of the mountain and water. We stopped at the maple grove camp area (4mi in) to relax and see the mountain. Some bugs on the way back at about (3p). NW forest pass needed. Trail, camp ground and bathrooms were OPEN.

This is always a favorite trail of mine. Went today(April 28) in my outback. No issues although I did notice a lot more potholes, that’s a given. (Haven’t been since fall) got there around 10 and had the place to myself until 1230 when I decided to leave.

Hit the trail around 9am. About 33 degrees. Beautiful weather the whole trip and no bugs. Water level is down in both the river and the lake, but the scenery is still great. Mt. Baker was stunning. We stopped at Noisy Creek Campground for lunch at noon. That was a good stopping point and was 4.5 miles from the trail-head. We were the only ones on the trail. No cars in the parking lot until we left at 3:30. About 10 cars passed us as we headed out. The only difficulty I see with this trip would be the mileage. Pretty easy trail and although All Trails says it 1,300 ft of elevation gain, the North Cascades Day Hiking book lists the gain as 500ft. Felt more like 500 ft than 1,300ft. Nice hike and would do it again

Sunday, March 22nd - We had to download the map to find it due to lots of misdirection found on internet. Once you get on Baker Lake Rd drive till you see road NF-1130 (it'll be right after Boulder Creek Campground). Once you take NF-1130 you will stay right at two forks and end up in a small opening in the trees. This road had some snow, we did 4WD in two small sections. There will be a rock to mark the trail head (prior reviews have pictures of it). We got there at like 10AM and had it to ourselves, at about 11AM there were (3) groups that came one right after another.
