Fagin's Hike of the Week- Artist Point

Updated December 15, 2017

We snowshoed this 2 weeks ago and had stable snow conditions and that is what you want for this trip so always check for avy updates. Views are outstanding!!! This is also a great ski tour. In the short term best to do today or on this Saturday.

 Mt Shuksan
Mt. Baker
Peaks of the North Cascades
Open slopes

Driving directions: From Bellingham follow the Mount Baker Highway (SR 542) to the very end (55 miles). The trailhead to Artist Point is at the last parking area on the Mt. Baker Highway. Upon arrival at Heather Meadows, continue to drive around Picture Lake (one-way) and past the ski lifts. The large parking area is on the right at the end of the road.
