Details

We will proceed west on the CDT/Bike Trail, to locate the Kearney Gulch TH on the other side. This trail is not as long as maps.  We will follow it 1.0 miles up, then turn left and ascend the mountainside SSE to the Mt Baker summit.  If winds are not too difficult, we will explore the ridge somewhat WSW along the next high points, toward Grizzly D, but this trip is about Mt Baker and the Mt Baker Ridge. We will descend the Mt Baker Ridge back to the parking area following a bearing through alpine open space, dense forest with lots of deadfall, occasional steep, slippery areas and over some small scree and boulder fields.
