An excellent loop that doesn’t really go anywhere, unless you count miles of brilliant alpine meadows and rugged glacial moraine slopes as worthy destinations. Enjoy a scenic journey at the base of Mount Baker, complete with breathtaking close-ups of the hulking volcano as well as sweeping views of the surrounding sea of North Cascades peaks. Start your hike on the Park Butte Trail, entering the 8000-acre Mount Baker National Recreation Area (a sort of wilderness-light). Soon come to a junction with Scott Paul Trail No. 603.1. Combined with the first 2 miles of the Park Butte Trail, one of the finest day-hiking loops in the North Cascades can be made.
