There should still be snow pack off the road and parking lot.

Artist point hike wta. Check road conditions in late summer/early fall. Dogs are also able to use this trail but must be kept on leash. If you hike to huntoon point, please stay on the graveled trail.

The hike takes off from the artist point parking lot at an elevation of 5,220 feett. Arrived at 9am on a sunday and parking lot was half full. 10 overall rating technical difficulty physical difficulty.

The views don't get much better from elsewhere, and the hike is so short that there is no need to take a shortcut on the way back. We had to hike pretty steep uphill to get to the trailhead. Parking pass required at trailheads.

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! Upper lodge to artist point trail is a 3.9 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near maple falls, washington that offers the chance to see wildlife and is rated as moderate. The beautifully shaped mount shuksan is the star of the area, with a gorgeous summit pyramid and several impressive glaciers.

This relatively easy snowshoe is an excellent winter destination with a virtual guarantee of good snow coverage. Then 2.7 miles to the end to artist point (this portion of the road is very narrow with switchbacks). We had this shorter hike on our list in case of a day with only a limited good weather window or if we wanted a restful day.

Artist point is the top competitor for best viewpoint in the state. We got our snowshoes on and headed up toward the trailhead. 195 trip reports for this trail, below.
