Mt Baker Area [Camping|Hiking]

Update:  here are the hikes we have scheduled so far.  We may add a more difficult hike option on Saturday as well.

Friday:  Mt Pilchuck - 5.4 miles 2200 ft gain

Saturday: Lake Twentytwo - 5.4 miles 1350 gain

and Big Four Ice Caves - 2.2 miles 200 ft gain

Sunday: Cascade Pass and Sahale Arm - 12.0 miles 3600 ft gain.


There are so many fantastic hikes in the Mt Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.  Most of which are too far away from Tacoma for a day hike.  This camping trip will allow us to do these hikes and explore this area while relaxing by the campfire each evening.

We have a group campsite where we can all pitch our tents, roast marshmallows around the campfire, and have a good time together.  We've got the campsite for 3 nights so we'll have lots of time to take in the sites and explore.

I'll be planning a hike for each day we are there however you are welcome to do your own exploring or relax at camp or near the river.  I could use a couple volunteers to lead a hike of your choice.  Let me know if you are interested.

You can reserve a tent spot for $30 for the 2 nights or $40 for 3 nights and can fill your tent with as many people as you want.  Pay Danene for your site when you arrive. There are no spots for campers/trailers however if you'd rather sleep in your vehicle that is fine.  All cars will be charged $10 per night with a max of 10 cars which means you will need to carpool.

You are responsible for your own equipment and meals.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call (253)[masked]
