Short but steep and exposed, this hike branches off from the Chain Lakes trail almost at the Artists Point parking lot and switchbacks up to a plateau with fine views of Baker, Shuksan, border peaks, and on and on. Only 3 miles round trip and 500′ change in elevation, this is really a half-day hike, so let’s make an early start and avoid the crowds. The hike will be canceled if rain is forecast. Meet in the SE corner of the Safeway parking lot (closest to the Orleans-Sunset intersection) to carpool and leave by 8.
