Mt Baker – Skyline Divide

This is an awesome ridge walk that showcases Mt Baker in all its glory. The trailhead is quite a ways up a forest service road, so check the road conditions on the Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest website before going. When I drove it, it was a bit rocky and bumpy in parts with some potholes but was no problem in my 2wd truck.

The trail starts with an ascent up switchbacks through forest until reaching the beginning of the ridge where the views explode. From there, follow the ridge towards Mt Baker as far as you want. Bring lots of water because it can get really hot in the summer and there are limited water sources on the ridge, especially later in the summer.
