Overview

This is a difficult one way trail to Hogsback Camp in Mount Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest.

The trail to Heliotrope ridge is well maintained and signed thru forest. Hogsback is the traditional basecamp for climbers attempting to summit Mt Baker so expect to see climbing parties coming down later in the day.

Getting Started

Drive past Glacier and follow the mixed surface road to Heliotrope Ridge trail head. There is limited parking by the outhouses, however it is common to park along the side of the road. Make sure you have a North West Forest Pass.
