With miles of flower-saturated meadows along a rolling lofty ridge radiating from the big volcano itself, Skyline Divide is one of 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 first peoples called Koma Kulshan, “the Great White One.” A popular place on a summer weekend, Skyline provides enough nooks and crannies to spread out. And while this hike is 4.5 miles long, feel free to quit anytime after 2 miles—there’s no shortage of views along the way.
