This is a relaxed, early season backpack along the East Bank trail of Baker Lake. We'll hike to our camp, take time to test out your gear and the skills you have learned so far and, weather permitting, take in lovely views of Mount Baker and Mount Shuksan.

Expect a Hello Hiker email about a week before the trip with detailed information.

We'll go rain or shine!
