This high alpine ridge walk is almost entirely above the tree line and thus boasts spectacular unobstructed Cascade views the whole way. On the way out you feel like you’re crawling right up the spine of Mount Baker; on the way back you’re lured by stunning views of Mount Shuksan, which is in your sight all the way back to Artist Point.
