Bacon Peak, high point of a massive plateau east of Baker Lake, is unknown to many mountaineers: it is invisible from State Route 20 and hard to approach from any side. Nevertheless, its large glaciers and snowfields and its remote situation offer the possibility of a real adventure within hours of the Puget Sound region. Difficulties: High avalanche potential; glacier travel; routefinding required; permit / fee area.
