This is a moderate to hard hiking trail depending on your hiking skills. Otherwise the view from the top was amazing! It's breathtaking views.

Agree with previous reviews! Past mountaineering experience required. This is not for a beginner! Saw people on glacier that I question there sanity! Not tied up and etc. Watched two different rock and snow slides go down on neighboring mountains due to heat. Lots of crevasses on El Dorado. There is a few tricky spots in Boulder field that require some rock climbing ability. Watched my very experienced partner almost split skull open due to not having a helmet. The “Knife’s Edge” going up summit was slushy also due to heat. Last bit of advice, the log jam before you get to parking area is best crossing to get on trail. Recommend you flag route if your coming back at night. Took a bit to get back on it at night. The hard work up this difficult climb is worth the reward of what of the best Mountain View’s in Washington.

HikingBugsNo shadeRocky

Did part of the upper trail Friday with my 11yr old and the full lower trail on Sunday with my husband. Northwest Forest Pass or America The Beautiful Pass required at upper trailhead only. Lower does not require the pass/fee. If you select directions from this trail listing, it will take you to the lower trailhead. 7 mile (or so) drive on up hill forest roads. Lost cell service a little before the forest road turn. Not hard to find, just a sharp left at the first intersection and then straight up to the trailhead. It’s rocky and washboarded in many areas but no major potholes. 2WD Civic made it up fine, but needs a serious bath now because it’s dusty and dirty! (Mild caution: some people can be less conscientious than others and fly down this road. The speed limit is 25, some of the corners are pretty sharp and tight, and there is a steep drop off, so please be careful and kind) Trail is beautiful and shaded for about 1/3 of the way. Then, it becomes more rock and exposed so, sunscreen is advised right now. STRONG Bug spray is also needed if you go later in the day. Friday night was awful for bugs but Sunday was great and didn’t even need the spray. Trail: First 1/3 Shaded old-growth forest, some roots and rocks, one small downed tree 1/3 Rocky, might need to use you hands if you don’t have poles 1/3 Gravel/loose rock stairs (poles were so helpful going down, kept me from eating it a couple times) Hikers: Almost everyone was kind and courteous and most wore masks or kept their distance to pass. Crowding: Earlier and later are better. Parking at 8:30am was easy, only about 10 cars were already there. When we came down, people had turned it into a one lane road by parking all down the side. Many more people going up as we were coming down. The wildflowers are gorgeous right now and on a clear day, you can see for miles on about 2/3 of the hike. Wow. Just wow. Sadly, didn’t see any mountain goats. But it was beautiful and well worth the trip up! Saw Rainer in her glory, MSH and Hood way off in the distance. Always have: 10 Essentials Recommended: - Poles - KT tape if you have knee issues - Good Trail Shoes / Hiking boots (tennis shoes will probably get you injured) - Lots of water (it’s hot and exposed) - Some good snacks / lunch for the top (wish we’d brought a beer!) - Sunscreen / Lip Balm - Bug Spray - A pen/marker for the register (it’s in a small Grey supply box)

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.

HikingGreat!Off trailRockyScramble

The hardest hike I’ve ever done and probably ever will. The views and scenery are worth it! Overall, I consider myself a well conditioned athlete and hiker and will advise anyone hiking this to make sure you have a few long hikes under your belt before doing so. To give you an idea, I hike cable line once every other week, did mailbox peak, half dome, and a few others in the 2 months leading up to this. I also weight train 4-5 days a week. With all that said, we hiked the 24 miles straight through with 5 minute breaks here and there with one lunch stop at the last lake. I believe we averaged a 25 minute mile pace. The most aggressive climb will be after colchuck lake, so I recommend a moderate pace that you won’t blow your load on. Remember you still have 20 miles to go. I recommend using the giant rocks to make your climb up, the dirt gives out easily and will zap you of energy quicker. Everyone on the trail was very respect and polite but that makes sense considering this attracts more expected hikers. MUST KNOWS: - Get there SUPER early, we arrived at the trailhead at 6:15a and it packed with cars already and was able to snag one of the last sights - have a second vehicle parked at the end or RSVP for the bus (this fills up quick) - Sunscreen!!! Big time, 12 hours in the sun - bug spray!! - Hiking piles will save you in the end That’s about it. Enjoy yourself, have a good lunch and snacks packed, and skinny dip in the lake.

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!!!

HikingGreat!

I absolutely LOVED this hike! It was very challenging and highly rewarding. I enjoyed the different terrains as well as the shade and sunshine areas. The wildflowers were pretty. The trail was well maintained and the people hiking were friendly and kept their distance. The views were absolutely stunning!

Beautiful, fairly easy trail with a great payoff at the end. Crowds were very minimal on a weekday afternoon.

HikingBugsGreat!RockyScramble

Backpacking: Got to the the trailhead around 1pm and arrived at Rachel lake at around 3pm so it took us about 3 hours to get there. Next morning we hikes to Alta peak and it took us aliens 2-3 hours total and 2 hours on the way down from Rachel lake. No issues finding parking and we had no issue finding a camping spot near Rachel lake even though it was a Saturday. The trail was packed with people. Make sure to BRING BUG SPRAY!!! I had bug spray and they were still eating my alive. The hike to Rachel lake wasn’t to hard but to Alta mountain was super hard physically. It is really steep with many loose rocks on the side of a rock ledge. That being said that shouldn’t discourage you if you have a good set of hiking shoes and some hiking poles you will be just fine. I hiked up without hiking poles and I totally regret it because it make it harder for me. You can also backpack to Lila lakes or other lakes rather than Rachel lake to set up base camp. The trails are pretty confusing so I would recommend bringing some type of map or getting AllTrails pro to help navigate. Short summary: Bring bug spray, bring hiking poles (or find a stick) and some type of map.

HikingBugsGreat!

Nice trail with great views throughout the second half. Had the top to myself, extremely peaceful place. A whole lot of mosquitoes. About half a mile of snow at the end. Once you branch of pct its a bit over grown but nothing anyone can't handle.

HikingGreat!RockyScramble

Through hiked on 8/2 (Sunday) and loved every second of it. Got to the snow lake trailhead at 4:30 and it was pretty empty still, and we saw about 10 groups all day! Trail is easy to follow with the carins but we added on little Annapurna which was less clear, although still totally doable. Mosquitoes were the worst going up Aasgard but not terrible in the core, but we did use liberal amounts of big spray. I would make sure you have a downloaded map, since I didn’t have cell service at all. Have fun!
