There are few hikes that equal this one: Where else can you hike through an alpine setting with close-up views of two major Cascade peaks? If you start the loop from Artist Point, you are facing Mount Baker and on the return you will be facing Mount Shuksan. Best of all are the views from Herman Saddle, the high point (5300 feet) of both peaks as well as the north side of Table Mountain.
