Great views!

May 27, 2018. Spectacular 360 view of Washington and Canada. It’s a challenging climb, but worth every bit of the effort required to get to the summit. We were lucky to arrive on the first day vehicles could reach the trailhead which was a plus. Mountaineering gear for glacier safety is highly recommended. While it’s possible to summit in 1 day, I would highly recommend making it an enjoyable 2 day excursion. For those planning 2 days, there are two excellent options for setting up base camp.

Hiked on May 12th snow was pretty sloppy as we had a lot of hot weather. Over all hike was a blast with beautiful views. I made a video along the way check it out for more in depth information about the hike: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDJzVpyON7c

I've hiked this trail many times and love it, but there's no waterfall as the description suggests. Great camping options at the top and connections to other trails. Check to make sure the footbridge at the beginning of the hike is functional. As of Dec. 2017 it had been severely damaged by flooding.

Good early season conditions right now. Snow was mostly solid. Snowshoed the whole way. Crampons could be useful for the final push, but not necessary if you have good traction on your snow shoes.

A great scramble. Certainly not a hike.

Fantastic views and well worth the climb.

Awesome hike. Super challenging and long. Can cautiously bring dogs. Wonderful view in meadow of mountains. Couldve went longer but on time crunch. Could camp out in meadows.

Perfect weather and an incredible weekend to summit Baker!!!

This is best done as a 2 day climb.

Incredible experience camping on the creek bed but the trail needs serious attention once the switchbacks start.

I worked with a WTA crew on the first mile or so of the trail before attempting to use this trail to reach Park Butte. Due the snowfall and trail debris I turned around at 4200ft and camped in the creek bed instead; it was a great night and coming back down was the right call.

Inaccessible from the west by Rd 38 due to a rock slide. From this point it is 6 miles from the trailhead.

Easy approach via Heliotrope Ridge Trail. Easton glacier is much more exposed than Coleman, no dangerous snow bridges to be found along the route, crevasses are all pretty obvious. This is the best route for the late season. Water is plentiful right near the hogsback bivy sites.

We went last week on Wednesday and Thursday. There is plenty of water up to Hogsback camp. The trail is easy to follow all the way to the top of Mount Baker.

Phenomenal trail. We hiked it on a rainy day, so it was a bit muddy, but not bad. There is some old growth along the way that is beautiful. We couldn't see the views on account of the low clouds.
