Hiking Along the Mountain Loop Highway

The Mountain Loop Highway in Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has over 1,500 miles of hiking trails, pristine lakes and rivers, gushing waterfalls and majestic mountains. There are a variety of hiking levels and the best person to ask about which hike to take is Edith at Green Gables. She’s been hiking the area for over 35 years. After talking with her I decided to do a couple of day hikes -Big Four Ice Caves Trail and Old Robe Trail.

I must issue this warning. DO NOT hike under or near the ice caves. They do collapse and this summer that resulted in one death.
