As fall arrives, Mount Baker is still in excellent condition for climbing, hiking, backpacking, and horseback riding. Wildflowers are out on Heliotrope Ridge and the Railroad Grade, and blueberries are everywhere. All of the trails around Mount Baker are snowfree and in excellent condition to the edge of the glaciers. We encourage you to get outside and enjoy the views before winter! New route reports and photos are up for the Coleman-Deming and Easton Glacier routes. We also have new photos for the North Ridge, Coleman Headwall, and Squak glaciers. Please remember to pack out all waste and help to keep our wilderness pristine. Happy trails!
