“Awesome hike to discover Mt. Baker area”
Review of Chain Lakes Loop

Chain Lakes Loop
Reviewed 4 October 2016 via mobile

Hiked this trail yesterday (oct 2nd). Beautiful fall colors (yellow, orange, red...) everywhere. Great views of Baker and Shukasan. I recommand on parking at Austin Pass (next parking after overflow parking of wild good trail), taking the wild goose trail and joining Artist Point and start the loop. Wild goose trail is quite of steep so I recommand on hiking it first than hiking it at the end of loop. Anyway this hike is beautiful. On a early morning or late afternoon (what I did) the light is superb!

We only hiked part of the Chain Lakes Loop, starting at the Bagley Lakes Loop trailhead. We had to cross a bridge or small dam to get to the Chain Lakes Loop on the other side of the Lower Bagley Lake. The Chain Lakes Loop is challenging for weak knees: we got help to cross over rocky places. For all the pain, we got fantastic views! We crossed over to the Bagley Lakes Loop at the bridge over the Upper Bagley Lake and returned over the easier Bagley Lakes Loop.

Even in August this was a beautiful drive and well worth the 2 hours to get to there. Highly recommend.

You take the beautiful but slow Highway 542 to Heather Meadows Visitor Center and from there another 3 miles to Artist Point parking area. Then there are many hikes with extreme beauty and vistas! Definitely worth the drive. Take water and food as there are no concessionaires at the top. Also, would wear good hiking shoes as the trails are well marked but are rocky, muddy and sometimes slippery. Picked many huckleberries st this time of year!
