Ptarmigan Ridge Mt Baker

Ptarmigan Ridge                                          Mt. Baker

  • The trail head begins at road end beyond Austin Pass. Start out in meadows, climb a bit to the snowy and rocky crest of a ridge open to the sky, and wander for miles on the high line toward the lofty white mass of Mt. Baker.

  • At the saddle between Table Mountain and Ptarmigan Ridge, take the left fork and traverse some 2-1/2 miles to Camp Kiser. The trail swings around the south side of Colman Pinnacle.

Rainbow Glacier Mt. Baker

Rainbow Glacier                                         Mt. Baker

  • The Baker-Shuksan scenery is steadily dazzling and off-trail tours of high rocks and waterfall-loud basins are constantly tempting. Listen to marmots whistling and squeaking. Watch for goats, and ptarmigan.

  • Wander the climber's track beyond Camp Kiser for close views of the Rainbow Glacier.

  • Complete trail information and directions are available from the Forest Ranger Station in Glacier Village.
