If you’re pressed for time, make this the one hike you do on your visit to the Mount Baker–Mount Shuksan area. You get the best of everything— countless Cascade peaks, subalpine meadows, snowfields for silly August snowball fights, and close-up views of both Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan—with the least amount of effort. The view from the parking lot itself is awesome, but for more, find the paved trailhead at the southeast corner of the parking lot (Mount Shuksan side) and follow the trail for about 100 yards to a south-facing vista. (In theory the trail has interpretive signs, but either vandals or the 25 feet of snow that falls here each year have done away with them.)
