Panoramic views of Mt. Shuksan, Mt. Baker, and the Coleman Pinnacle ridge. 3 miles roundtrip with 560' elevation gain. Duration: overnight or day trip. Endless land to explore. Stargazing.

The hike takes off from the Artist Point parking lot at an elevation of 5,220 feett.

The trail slowly meanders up for a while until reaching the final steep switchbacks where you'll have a sheer cliff to your side—don't let it distract you, and keep focused on the trail in front of you!

Once you've made it to the summit, you'll be greeted by the sunshine bursting over the surrounding peaks.

Magical

Like everything else up at Artist's Point, this short little hike comes with magical views, and the stone steps that adorn the trail will make you feel like you're walking into your favorite fantasy series.

Would Recommend!

We arrived just before sunset, strapped on our gear and some headlamps and stayed the night on Table Mountain. The trail is a little rocky and unstable at some points, so night hiking can be sketch, but it was well worth the beautiful morning.

Easy Hike with Rewarding 360° Views

Table Mountain is one of my favorite spots to view Mt. Baker and Mt. Shuksan, easily accessed by a short hike plan to come for sunrise or sunset to capture some awesome photos. Once you get to the top continue of the trail for even better views of Baker.
