Hiking

Such a beautiful trail, we planned on taking it easy and doing this in three days but ended up doing it in two. We did a short afternoon hike out to Lewis meadows campsite where we stayed the night, left our tent and gear there and just took our packs with water and snacks up to blue glacier. Once we got up there it was only 11:30, we hiked back down in no time and realized we could easy hike back to the car since most of the trail is flat so we completed 26 miles the second day. I’d suggest breaking it up a tad more evenly and camping at elk lake, but either way not a super demanding hike. We didn’t have any issues with bugs and once we were out about 6 miles the crowds weren’t constant. I will say there was a family at the campsite who was being rather loud at night which for someone who goes out into nature for some peace and quiet I was a little frustrated, so please keep in mind you aren’t the only ones out there.

Great workout if you need elevation fast! Make sure to use GPS to find the trail head.

Great hike that isn’t too strenuous and has a great payoff with the view. The wildflowers are out but not overly abundant right now. Even with bug spray on over a dozen mosquitos successfully bit me through my clothing. Can’t wait for the lookout to be open again. Sunrise/sunset is the best time to be there. Lots of people are visiting so please be patient and courteous on the smaller sections of the trail.

Great trail if you are wanting to get in elevation on a shaded & easy to follow path. The view it mostly trees until you get to the top. The top has a great view + a fun little scramble. Wasn’t too crowded when I went around 11 on a Monday. The parking lot has huge pot holes. My garmin watch only tracked 7 miles + 3k vert.

Great trail - a serious hike! Longer than 3.4 miles. Logged closer to 5 miles on my Fitbit. First half of the trial is incredibly rocky and then a very dry dirt/root path. The views at the top are incredible. Busy trail - even for a Monday but most people were very good about mask usage.

HikingClosed

Not sure how people are saying they had a good time hiking this recently due to it being closed. Respect the parks and don’t use areas that are closed. I’m happy people are starting to be fined for it now as well. Things won’t open back up if people aren’t doing what is being asked. Have some common sense and respect. I stopped just to check and enjoy it from the parking area and had to remind a family that moved a barrier to go to the climbing area that it’s still closed. Please be adults and just respect the parks.

Hiking

Just completed this super easy, and totally worth it hike/walk. Ditto to what everyone else has said about the views! Amazing, especially on a beautiful clear day like today. Great family trail, even for little ones. Trail is very well marked. I took the Shelly Loop Trail in my way down. A tiny incline, and tree roots, but not difficult at all. I arrived around noon, and there were only about 8 cars in the lot. WARNING - passed a mom with three young kids who said they were all stung by yellow jackets on the Broom-Tomb Loop Trail, which is the upper extension of Sares Head. I cannot confirm this as I took her warning, and did not go up there. Super disappointed in the amount of irresponsible dog owners that don’t pick up their dogs poo :( BE RESPONSIBLE or don’t bring them! Happy Hiking! Enjoy:)

what an amazing trip - be prepared for bugs! we brought a mosquito shelter, thermacell, head nets and bug lotion. that did the trick and we only headed out with a few bites! we stayed the first night at marmot, second night at jade, third day we hike to dip top gap and fourth day hiked back down. we saw people putting their tent on the meadow at jade, please don’t do that. other than that it was a wonderful trip!

HikingGreat!

Hiked/climbed Mt Baker over this past weekend - it was awesome! Beautiful mountain flowers on the way to camp. Three creek crossings that did result in wet feet but nothing major. Camped at Raven’s Nest (AKA eagles nest) up the hill from the main camping area - easily the most beautiful campsite I have ever seen!! Visited by a mountain goat that licked the tents at night (after salt) but was not the least bit aggressive. The climb to the summit was perfect! Left at 5am, snow was perfect, summit in just under 5 hours. Could not have asked for a better day!!!

HikingBugsGreat!

Beautiful scenery. We arrived at 6:45 am and only two other cars in the lot. Saw no one on the way to the lake. Bring bug spray but otherwise it’s just a wonderful experience. Definitely hard in the knees on the way up if that’s an issue for you. Coming back down around 11 the trail was pretty busy but masks and curtesy were in abundance as well

Short and easy drive from Seattle. Quick but strenuous hike to the top. At the summit, there were lots of paragliders. While we were there, one company was offering to take people paragliding from the top - it was $195 per person. Looked fun if you are spontaneous.

HikingGreat!

The Four Cedars Outer Loop Trail at Tolmie State Park is only 1.8 miles long, yet makes for an excellent hike after visiting the beach at Tolmie State Park. The trail is well maintained and marked, and winds through the woods. The trail is a loop from the beach parking area. When we hiked the trail on a weekday morning it was only lightly trafficked, although there were several people at the beach. The trail is surrounded by woods along its entire length, but this makes for a very enjoyable hike through the woods. There are a couple of hills along the trail, but nothing too serious - maybe just a little much for younger children. Other than the hills this is a very easy hike, that takes about an hour to complete.

Walking

This is a short, half-mile, hike that leads along the edge of the park out to the park boundary on the beach. When we walked the trail this morning there was nobody else on it, although there were several people on the beach. You could also get to this area by walking down the beach from the main beach access area. There is nothing special about this trail, it just takes to to the far side of the beach. Still it is well maintained and there are a couple of picnic tables near the end of the trail if you just want to sit and watch the water.

Walked my pup a few times through here and it’s a nice easy hike/walk. The outer loop is the only one with views of the river, but the inner loops feature fun plants and Wildlife.

Loved this trail - agree going down is pretty brutal and slippery. I didn’t have enough water so that last 1-2 miles was really rough. I carried 2 liters on a sunny day and it wasn’t enough. Views are fantastic. Took us 5 hours round trip. Both of us are trail runners.

Hike was super easy with a consistent incline. Super short for the type of views you get at the top, lots of room up there too so easy to explore the lookout and social distance.
