This area is truly a gorgeous, unspoiled section of the US. Lots of natural beauty here. If you like to snow board or ski, it's a fabulous destination. Just be warned, cell phone exception is spotty at best. So, if you can't step back and...More

This is a beautiful part of the country, and there's a lot of variety to be seen...tree-lined roads, rustic buildings, rushing rivers, sunlight streaming through the trees (when it's not cloudy or rainy), a great place to escape the hustle and bustle of civilization. It...More

Lots of great scenic hikes. The shorter ones were actually my favorites: Picture Lake Trail, Artists Ridge Trail, and Fire and Ice Trail. Artists Ridge provided wonderful views and Picture Lake was gorgeous with the foliage changing color in late September and the mountain's reflections...More

We were so lucky that the day we came in September there were not many clouds. Mt. Baker was out in all of its splendor. The views up here are gorgeous. There was not any snow except on the top peaks. We took several hikes...More

Mount Baker - and particularly the drive all the way to Artist Point - is a lovely drive on a sunny day. However, the entire roadway is only open during a handful of months at the most, historical records tell us since 1999. In 1999,...More

Yes, this is a nice, natural setting with trail heads for hiking, some views, and so on... but if going all the way up to the end of the road, I guess it depends why you take the long drive. The view are nice, but...More

The winding roads up are a little scary, but when you reach the top it is worth it. The views are terrific without hiking at all, but there are several trails to take if you want a little exercise. Park rangers are there with maps...More

One of the must visits if you're in the northwest. Worth the trip up the winding roads to Artist point and there's plenty of camping spots, hiking trails before you get there. I just went for the views and pictures but there's way to much...More

We waited till August for the snow to clear off the Artist Point to Huntoon Point trail. This trail has great views of Mt Shuksan, but views of Mt Baker would be better in the morning. It's a short mile hike, but has several big...More

We have been to Mt. Baker many times, but never to Artist Point at the end of Highway 542. It is nearest to Glacier, WA. It is only open a few months a year due to heavy snow and even now (August) there was still...More
