Bagley & Chain Lakes


Day Hike - Chain Lakes Loop

Bring your camera for those magnificent views of Mt Baker, Mt Shuksan, Table Mountain, Ptarmigan Ridge, and six pristine alpine lakes. This hike is intended to be at a social pace where we can mingle, take in the views, and take pictures. I hope to enjoy wild huckleberries and blue berries during the hike but this is not a berry picking event (must leave some for bear cubs, right). Most of the trail is exposed so the hike will be cancelled if weather is bad. A good description of hike and trip reports courtesy of WTA at Map:

Priority will be given to those staying at Mountaineer Baker Lodge as it makes it easier to start fresh and on-time. We will leave from Mountaineers Baker Lodge shortly after the breakfast and return to the same place about 4-5 hours later.  Discover Pass not required if staying and parked at the lodge.
