Miles of ?ower-saturated meadows along a rolling, lofty ridge radiating from the big volcano itself, Skyline Divide is one of Mount Baker’s best offerings to the hiking community. While the views are supreme, from the snowy peaks of British Columbia to the salty waters of Puget Sound, you’ll struggle keeping your eyes off of what the area’s Native peoples called Koma Kulshan, “the Great White One.” And while this trail is 4.5 miles long, feel free to quit anytime after 2; there’s no shortage of views along the way.
