The Heliotrope Trail hike at Mt. Baker has been on my radar for YEARS now. Seriously, how cool would it be to get THIS close to an active glacier?!
If you’ve read any of the trail reviews for this, know that they are 100% accurate. Especially when it comes to the river crossings! There are four each way, and the third one is DEFINITELY sketchy! It’s impossible to stay dry, because the water is a foot or so deep. So take your damn shoes and socks off, get your feet wet, and enjoy cooling off a little from the hike!
Now, I didn’t do this hike alone. My friend Lisa and her baby daughter Royal came along for the adventure. I’ll have photos of THEM up on a future blog post!
